Mixed Blood Theatre of Minneapolis will present the
‘According to Coyote’
play “According to Coyote” on Monday evening, October
Monday, October 24 24, at 7 p.m. in Kiehle Auditorium. The event is open
to the public. This energetic collection of legends gives
life to Coyote, the trickster, teacher, magician, and hero
in American Indian traditions. Playwright John Kauff-
man employs age-old techniques of music, dance,
magic and narrative to bring to life this character in all
his guises--Coyote the Creator, the namer of animals
and bringer of fire; Coyote the Trickster, conniving for
an advantage that usually backfires on him; and Coyote
the Teacher, from whom lessons of humility, wisdom
and humanity are learned. This event is sponsored by
the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Programs.

National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week
October 17 – 22
“THINK BEFORE YOU DRINK”
October 17 begins NCAA/ATOD National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week. A week of activities to encourage UMC
students to “think before you drink.” A guideline motto developed by Amoy Carty, UMC senior, UMC student UROC re-
searcher, as a best practices guideline to promote UMC student healthy and safety.
“We know that drinking too much alcohol is bad for us. It gives us hangovers, makes
us feel tired and does little for our appearance – and that is just the morning afterwards.
Long term, it increases the risk of developing a long list of health conditions including
breast, oral cancers, heart disease, strokes and cirrhosis of the liver. Research shows
that a high alcohol intake can also damage our mental health, impair memory skills and
reduce fertility,” reported by Philippa Roxby, BBC News Healthy reporter, October 2011.
“Each person is responsible for their own alcohol consumption guidelines. This takes
information (know the laws and research), personal reflection (personal and career goals),
attention (to your own body and family history), and seek help when needed. (Vicki Sve-
darsky, UMC Counselor and ATOD Program Coordinator)
Katherine Brown, head of research at the Institute of Alcohol Studies summarizes, “It is
difficult to state exactly how much is too much” and we need to be very careful when sug-
gesting there is a ‘safe’ level of drinking for the population. Rather, we need to explain
that there are risks associated with alcohol consumption, and that the less you drink the
lower your risk is of developing health problems.”
Stay safe and participate in NCAA/ATOD National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week activities encouraging greater
awareness of alcohol effects and consequences.
