Suicide Prevention Program for Native Youth Launches

Payton Counts, an alumna of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, helped organize a suicide prevention program for Native youth in Minneapolis. “A lot of Native youth don’t want to contact the police because they’re scared of what will happen,” Counts shared. “They would rather deal with it themselves than reach out for help because the reality is we have been burned by the system so many times before.”

A Revolutionary Debate

Who would you be in the French revolution? A feminist, a member of the bourgeoisie, or perhaps Lafayette himself? Through a three-and-a-half week long role-playing game, FREN 1501/1502: Gateways to French and Francophone Studies offers first- and second-year students the chance to find out where they would fit in the grand debate. The class also includes guest lectures and group discussions to further explore French language, culture, and history.
