All of us have been affected in some way by the tragic events surrounding Hurricane Sandy. We may have been impacted directly, and if not, we likely know others who have been touched by this disaster. Here is some information that can help. It is normal for us to experience a multitude of emotions: anxiety, sadness, anger, and the feeling of vulnerability, among others. We may have problems sleeping, concentrating or eating. For most of us, these responses subside naturally with the passage of a little time. There is no right or wrong way to respond to trauma; any reaction you have is valid. Be accepting of your own feelings and reactions as well as those of others.

CityServ is the Office of Student Life and Leadership's iniative to participate in a wide range of programs and activities to serve the surrounding communities. Through the act of volunteering and donating our time and efforts, we are able to impact and bring to life unfamiliar, unrepresnted and underfunded communities who otherwise may easily be forgotten. It is our duty to help revive troubled areas and individuals. Help us by developing new programs, taking part in all types of events and taking time to give back to the community that can really use our support. As we say in the office: "People don't care how much you know- until they know how much you care"
