Attend the Water and Environmental Sustainability in Mexico Info Session, Feb. 26

Posted by on Feb 22, 2016 in Announcements, Customize your experience, Graduate Students |

This content is more than a year old. Find upcoming events on the calendar or recent news on the home page.

Join Enrique Vivoni, professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment and the School of Earth and Space Exploration, on a trip to Mexico to learn about the water resources and environmental sustainability of the US-Mexico border.

You will learn about water resources in a setting where it is more limited, more contentious, less robust and less resilient. As a result, important contrasts can be drawn with our own water resources sustainability issues in the United States and a discussion about bi-national water resources can be enriched.

From snow-covered mountain conifer forests to coastal deserts with magnificent cactus, the field trips will exhibit the diversity of conditions that serve as a challenge to water resources management. In addition, students will interact with Mexican students, researchers, and water managers.

Are you determined to take better care of yourself next semester? Consider trying out yoga with Fulton students, staff and faculty! The class is free.

Yoga will be offered from 11–11:45 a.m. in the Engineering Center F-wing (ECF) 130 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When the weather is pleasant, we’ll go outside.

Tuesdays and Thursdays from January to May

The first class for the semester will be Tuesday, January 11, 2016.

Wear comfortable, stretchy clothing and be ready to have fun. A handful of yoga mats are available to use. Being able to put your foot behind your head is not a prerequisite, however remembering to breathe and to have fun are a must!

The instructor, Cortney Loui, taught yoga and Pilates full-time for a few years before coming to ASU as a coordinator of Undergraduate Student Engagement in the Fulton Schools.

For faculty and staff: The Free Fulton Yoga classes can now earn you points for the HIP program! Basically, benefits-eligible ASU employees can earn points and cash by participating in the Health Impact Program. Certain classes/programs are eligible for HIP points. If you’re interested in earning HIP points from my class, you’d need to attend 4/8 classes.

Currently, the Fulton Yoga class would be under the category activity/exercise on-site activity class series= enrollment = 25 points and completion= 50 points.  The current HIP cycle ends September 30 and will begin again in January. When you come to class, be sure to know/have your 99# employee ID number on hand. Learn more about HIP here.
