No Make Up Day Event

Wed., November 12, 2014 at 8:00 AM
On November 12, the Health & Wellness Center and the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Diversity will be hosting No Make Up Day. Inspired by the song "Try" by Colbie Caillat, we want to encourage our campus to be comfortable in their own skin and love exactly who they are. This video sends a powerful message about our society's expectations of beauty and we hope that this day without makeup will do the same. Faculty, staff and students will be encouraged to go makeup free. We will have multiple stations where people can remove their make up if they want. For more information, contact the Health & Wellness Center at healthcenter@sjfc.edu.
