What’s with the caution tape at the UND Wellness Center?

If you’ve frequented the UND Wellness Center in the last couple of days, you may have noticed that there is some new décor in the weight room.  Big bold letters telling you to “PUT AWAY YOUR WEIGHTS” is what you are greeted by. IMG_2027

This campaign/promo is coming on the heels of many many complaints from participants of having to clean up after their peers just to do their own workout.  This policy has always been in place at the Wellness – to help keep the Wellness looking its best and also to provide a common courtesy to your fellow Wellness members.  Why should they have to clean up after you?  They aren’t your mother – and I’m pretty sure your mother would just make you do it yourself anyways.

So please do your part & clean up after yourself – and this could include putting your dirty sweat towels in the bins that are out there and wipe down your sweat covered machines – no one wants to lay in your sweat,  so use the sanitizing wipes that are provided.

Remember YOU can to help keep the Wellness clean!

Yes, You are a Leader

You are a Leader.

What… you don’t like to stand in front of a crowd while dancing and singing?
Big whoop. You’re still a Leader.

You have a circle of influence; likewise, you are in someone else’s circle of influence.

During my years as a ND 4-H Ambassador, I learned an important lesson: some of our group’s best leaders were those who preferred to stand behind the machine that was casting the spotlight.

Too often I think we associate Leadership with the act of being up in front of a group, but that is not necessarily the case. And in order to be successful, we need variety.

In today’s workforce, it has become more important than ever to increase your portfolio, knowledge, and experience. The more that you are able to bring to the table, the easier it may be to find a job after graduation.

One of our main focuses within the Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals is Professional Development. We want to help our members become the best versions of themselves, and one of the ways we do this is by offering a one day Leadership Development Seminar called Chick-Fil-A Leadercast.

CFAL_Host_Grand Forks_FullColor

This is an internationally-known simulcast that takes place in Atlanta, and allows people like you or me to listen to outstanding leaders without having to leave the city.

We recently found out we have access to FREE student tickets… this is an $85.00 value!
If you’re interested, please email me (

This year the theme is “Simply Lead,” and I can’t WAIT to see you there!
