Free Chair Massages in the dining hall March 11
While we tend to think of stress as something experienced in the mind, stress can also become stored in the muscles of the body. Whereas a degree of stress may help motivate us to work hard and stay focused, problems may arise when excessive amounts of stress are not managed. In recognition of this fact as well as in appreciation to YOU for working so hard this year, CSJ Counseling Services is happy to announce that the massage therapists are back to help ease your tight shoulders and backs! On March 11, free massages will be available from 11:50-12:50 in the dining hall.
The Business Club’s next meeting will be at noon Wednesday, March 12, in room 108. The club encourages students interested in a fun learning experience to join or attend weekly meetings. The club conducts fundraisers, schedules events, and enjoys hosting business leaders.

Are You Familiar With Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan is the process which a library requests materials from, or supplies to, another library. The purpose of interlibrary loans is to obtain, upon request of a library user, material not available in the user’s local library. The Giorgetti Library is a part of OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan. This means that your request for a journal article or book, can be obtained from a lending library anywhere in the United States. You can request a journal article cited in our EBSCOhost Databases, by selecting “Click here to request an interlibrary loan”. You can also find Interlibrary Loan located in Find Resources. At the top of the page you can select either “Article Request Form” or “Book Request Form”. Contact the librarians if you need assistance.

Free Paper Editing Service
Every semester, a plethora of students are gifted enough to realize that if they complete their papers early enough, they will have enough time for a Peer Tutor to edit them for common mistakes that result in reduced grading. We all know that having our work edited is sheer brilliance, and at CSJ … it’s free!
The Learning Center is always willing to edit papers, and more importantly, teach new skills along the way. However, sending your papers to the Learning Center the night before they are due does not provide sufficient time for effective editing.
To guarantee effective editing, Peer Tutors require at least 1 weeks’ notice in order to provide quality support services. If any CSJ students want to have a paper screened for editing, please Google Doc & share them with the Learning Center Director (Susan Boyce), who will in turn share them with a qualified Peer Tutor that will launch the editing process. All papers must be passed through the Learning Center Director in order to be assigned. We look forward to serving our students effectively!
