Do you know how to protect yourself? With graduate students working long hours and/or odd hours, a basic knowledge of self defense is valuable. Therefore, the GSG Student Life Committee hosted an Introduction to Self Defense Course facilitated by Public Safety and Mary Joe, Lynn Snoza, and Bryan Hilson with the American School of Karate and Judo. We would like to greatly thank our trainers for their time and expertise. A questionnaire is being sent out to participants, and we are exploring the option of offering a monthly training. This would allow students to practice techniques and learn more advanced ones. If you are interested in a monthly Self Defense practice, please contact MarshaPierce@creighton.edu.
The downtown shuttle is back! CSU is providing a shuttle to downtown Omaha. Check out CSU’s homepage for the schedule. The shuttle runs on the weekends starting at 9:00 p.m. and will run through the route for the last time during the 1:00 a.m. hour.
