Short days got you SAD?
SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is a type of winter depression that affects an estimated half a million people every winter between September and April, in particular during December, January and February. It is caused by a biochemical imbalance in the hypothalamus due to the shortening of daylight hours and the lack of sunlight in winter. We call this ‘winter blues.’ One of the treatments for SAD is light therapy. It is a special light box that is safe and does not emit UV rays. Light therapy is available through counseling and health services. If you would like to learn more please contact Cary Knier, Director of Counseling Services, at email@example.com or x1527.

Highland House High-Five
Positive recognition is an incredible motivator for individuals to make good choices, and to act respectfully, responsibly and safely. The Highland House High-Five is an incentives program that will be a simple way to recognize students, student groups, as well as faculty and staff that are caught demonstrating civility.
The rules are simple:
If you see someone, faculty/staff or student, do something above and beyond in regards of acting respectfully, responsibly and safely you can nominate them for the Highland House High-Five. (Nomination forms can be found in the Campus Center as well as on Muskie Central).
Each month, the nominations will be evaluated and the individuals that were nominated will be rewarded with a $20 gift certificate to the Highland House restaurant in Sheboygan.
Author, journalist to deliver commencement address
Lakeland is excited to announce that Jeffrey Selingo, an author, columnist, and speaker who has spent his journalism career covering colleges and universities worldwide, will serve as Lakeland College’s 2014 commencement speaker.
He is the author of

Textbooks on Reserve-Check the library’s online list
Do you know that you can check online to see if your textbook is on reserve in the library? Go to the library web page at lakeland.edu/library. Under Services, click on Reserve Shelf. You can search by instructor, title (alphabetical by first word in title including A, The, etc.), or, in some cases, by course such as Core III. Remember our Reserve Shelf items cannot leave the library. Ask for the item at the library front desk. Although we have a nice collection of textbooks available, the Reserve Shelf does not include all course textbooks. In addition to textbooks, faculty will often place supplemental books, articles and DVDs on reserve when they anticipate high demand by students. Throughout the semester, as new items are added, we update the online list. We hope you find the online list helpful.
