Salukis Care Day
Salukis Care Day is Friday, April 12, 2024


Save the date for this year's Salukis Care Day on April 12, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Faner Plaza. This year's theme is Thriving & Surviving Salukis Strong. Join us for free food, music, giveaways, games, inflatables, hammocks, bubbles, and a Chalk Fest for students to write positive affirmations.

The Salukis Care Day rain location will be held at the Student Recreation Center from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the event of rain.

The Undergraduate Student Government (USG) will provide student-to-student access care to mental health. USG understands that many students may become overwhelmed, exhausted, depleted, and anxious during this time and want to do our due diligence to support one another. As a result, USG is partnering with Counseling & Psychological Services, funding all CAPS appointments (CAPS APPOINTMENTS ONLY) beginning Monday, April 8-Friday, April 12, ensuring students can get support for their personal, psychological, mental, and emotional needs.

CAPS works to help students resolve problems that interfere with personal, social, and academic functioning while emphasizing prevention, development, adjustment, and wellness. CAPS counselors are here to support you! Counselors are available at various locations on campus Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 12:30 - 9:00 p.m. Please call (618) 453-5371 so we can direct you to a location.
