By working together, each one of us can make a positive impact on this global issue.<br /><br />Earth Hour 2015<br />March 28, 2015 <br />8:30-9:30 p.m. <br /><br />HOW YOU CAN HELP<br /><br />Before you leave the office on Friday, March 27, make sure everything is off and unplugged so that UIC is ready for Earth Hour Saturday night. Follow this easy checklist:<br /><br />1. Shut down your computer and turn off your monitor (unless, of course, departmental policy forbids it). See more at http://accc.uic.edu/policy/conservation.<br /><br />2. Unplug all electronics, even when not in use. Examples are desktop printers, cell phone chargers, fax machines, and even laboratory equipment. If they are connected to a power strip, shut that off as well because many electronic devices can still draw power even when they are not in use and turned “off”.<br /><br />3. Check the break rooms to make sure that the coffee maker or any small electronics, even the microwave if possible, are unplugged.<br /><br />4. If your office has blinds or curtains, lower them. This will help to maintain the building’s temperature, and reduce energy used by the building’s HVAC system.<br /><br />5. Make sure that the last person leaving the building has turned all of the lights in the common areas off, where applicable.<br /><br />For more information and how to participate at home, visit https://sustainability.uic.edu/events/earthhour<br /><br />Continue the Earth-saving momentum and swing into Earth Month!

Its dual purpose is to raise funds to help support the operations of the Pop-Up Pantry and to display the art and talents of our own UIC Community. The Pop-Up Pantry was initiated last semester in order to combat issues faced by students dealing with homelessness and food insecurity on campus. Since then, hundreds of students have utilized this resource. An on campus food pantry allows us, as students of UIC, to support each other when money is tight and meals can be scarce. This resource is run primarily on food and monetary donations. <br /><br />The Pop-Up Benefit: A Call to Action is aimed at educating the UIC community on the issue of homelessness, and raising funds to support the UIC Pop-Up Pantry. The evening will consist of guest speakers on topics related to homelessness and food insecurity. There will be UIC students showcasing their various talents such as, spoken word artists, singers, rappers, and a dance group, all of whom will provide the entertainment for the evening.<br /><br />Date: Monday, April 13, 2015<br />Location: 750 South Halsted Street, Student Center East - Illinois Room <br />Time: 5:30-7:30pm <br />Tickets: $5 for students & $10 for staff and faculty.<br /><br />We ask that you help us to help our community!<br /><br />There will be a silent auction and art showcase for the evening with further information listed below: <br /><br />Student Art Showcase <br />If you are interested in selling your art, pieces can be sold during a silent auction at the event and the proceeds will go to the Pop-Up Pantry. You can also choose to sell your piece privately to make a profit from your hard work. Ideally, we would like art themed around food insecurity, hunger, homelessness, community, social issues, UIC, Chicago, etc. Pieces must be two dimensional or easy to move and display. Please submit your intent to contribute by Friday March 27th so we can begin preparations for the benefit. <br /><br />This is a wonderful opportunity to use your art as a positive force in our community, and each of your contributions will play a vital role in the success of this event.<br /><br />Silent Auction<br />As a part of this event, a silent auction will be held in which attendees can bid on donated items and all of the proceeds will go to supporting the Pop-Up Pantry. If possible, we ask that you and your colleagues might collaborate to donate an item to be sold during this auction. These items can be creative or fundamental, and any donation within your capabilities would aid our cause immensely. <br /><br /><br />Tickets<br />Tickets go on sale Monday, March 30, 2015 and can be purchased at the UIC bookstore in person or online.<br /><br /><br />Please contact uic.pop.up.pantry@gmail.com with any questions.<br /><br /><br />Thank you so much for your time and contributions,<br /><br />Pop-Up Benefit: A Call to Action Planning Committee <br /><br />Event Sponsors: African Student Council, American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, UIC Campus Programs, Graduate Student Council (GSC), Greek Programming Board, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Development,<br />Pathways to Black Male Achievement, Student Activities Board (SAB), Student Alumni Ambassadors, Student Leadership Development and Volunteer Services (SLDVS), Undergraduate Student Government (USG), and the UIC Wellness Center. <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Tue, 24 Mar 2015 15:12:12 -0500 Tue, 24 Mar 2015 15:12:12 -0500 [INFO] Are you a current or former smoker?

The UIC Department of Ophthalmology is offering a Complimentary LASIK 2-hour evaluation to all University of Illinois Faculty, Employees and Students on Wednesdays and Thursdays between the dates of March 23, 2015 through May 1, 2015.<br /><br />UIC faculty, employees and students can schedule a complimentary evaluation for laser vision correction surgery at the Millennium Park Eye Center, located at 30 N. Michigan Avenue.<br /><br />For More Information … Call 312-996-2020!<br /><br />Some things to keep in mind when scheduling the evaluation:<br /><br />1. If you wear soft contact lenses, you must be without your lenses 1 week prior to your appointment date. If you wear hard contact lenses, you must not wear your lenses 3 weeks prior to your appointment date. <br /><br />2. The doctors will use two different dilating drops during the exam to dilate your eyes to the maximum degree. Although we provide shaded inserts for your glasses, you may find your own sunglasses much more comfortable to use after your examination. <br /><br />3. While the most convenient parking is located in the Grant Park Garage on Michigan Ave., the Millennium Park Eye Center ONLY validates for the ABM garage at 60 East Randolph Street. Parking validation for 4 hours is $18 at the ABM garage. <br /><br />4. You will most likely be able to drive yourself home after having your eyes dilated; however, some people find it more comfortable to have a friend or family member drive them. <br /><br />5. Please remember that this LASIK evaluation requires some wait time between testing and for dilating drops to take effect. The doctors and staff will be happy to assist with any questions during these wait times. <br /><br />6.
