Would YOU like to become an ALLY?

Loyd will be hosting an ALLIES training session on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 from 6:30pm-8:30pm. During the 2-hour session, participants will discuss myths surrounding LGBT individuals, the social and political challenges they face, and the ways in which YOU as an ally can reach out to them, provide support, and work towards ending discrimination.

At the end of the session, you will receive an ALLIES placard for your door, letting you show your support for the LGBT community and identify yourself as a safe person to talk to about personal problems or related issues.

Notes from our Loyd Peer Leaders

From Your Peer Health Educator – Carlyle Reid

What’s in your drink?

date rape

20% of college students have been sexually assaulted. Although this seems scary, it is very easy to avoid. One way that many students are sexually assaulted is by being “date-raped.” To help avoid being another statistics, here are some tips:

  • When you go to ANY event and have an open drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), keep one hand over the top when you are not drinking it.
  • You do not know who might be trying to “slip something” in your drink. Although the situation may seem safe, there can be danger. Watch yourself, and have a friend whom you trust and know well to help you out when you begin to feel strange.
  • If you start feeling strange after consuming none or a small amount of alcohol, immediately get help, by calling SMU PD (There will be no penalty if you or a friend has been drinking alcohol). When you notice a friend acting strange after consuming little or no alcohol, call SMU PD.
  • Seeing someone put an unknown substance into another’s drink without consent, and not telling the other person, is illegal. Tell them, even if you do not know the person.

Notes from our Loyd Peer Leaders

From Your Peer Health Educator – Carlyle ReidHello Loydians!

We are continuing alcohol awareness right now. Here’s an interesting fact, that most people don’t know. Remember to be safe, because every time you drink, there can be different affects. If you have any more questions, email me at carlyler@smu.edu

Have a wonderful Week 2!

ID CARD NOT WORKING???

 id card

If your card is not working, DO NOT click report “lost” or “stolen” in the online system (http://idcard.smu.edu) they cannot get a temporary ID from the desk anymore. You must chose “request temporary ID” at the bottom of the options. This turns off your ID and then you can get a new card when the ID card office opens. We have had 6 from Saturday- today. This limits the chance that your ID will have issues working at dining locations and/or parking garages.

The Loyds will be our Honored Guests at the first Loyd Commons Dinner! They are extremely excited to meet all of you!!!
