Come down this Friday to see Denver-based jazz artist, Rajdulari, and her 9-piece band! Show will be in Bemis Hall at 9:00 PM, and open to all students. Bring your gold card.

Rajdulari Bio:

Rajdulari Landell is a composer, singer, fashionista, and actress who got her start performing in the local church choir. Eventually making her way to Boston and attending Berklee College of Music, Rajdulari was able to draw from many traditional and contemporary jazz singers from Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn to Chaka Kahn and Lizz Wright. Her unique blending of jazz and R&B as well her contemporary compositions off her first album, Honeywine, allowed her to perform at numerous prestigious jazz clubs in NYC such as Billie’s Black, Iridium Jazz Club, BB King’s blues/jazz club and many more. She has recently moved to Denver and headlined at Dazzle Jazz as well as performing at the prestigious Boettcher Concert Hall for the Martin Luther King celebration this year.

Are you someone who drinks on a regular basis? It could be once a month, once a week, a few times a week, or even more frequent than that – the Wellness Resource Center is promoting the first week of April as a time to try and go alcohol-free and join the sizable community of students, staff, and faculty on campus who choose not to incorporate alcohol into their lifestyle. There are many benefits to abstaining from alcohol including better sleep, improvements in critical thinking, problem-solving, memory, and mood, and probably more money in your bank account!

For some people who choose to drink, alcohol may serve a significant function. Using it as a coping mechanism or as a way to open up socially are examples of how people may rely on alcohol to serve a need, though not in the most healthy or sustainable way. This next week can also be a time to reflect on your alcohol use and examine the role it plays in your life. We recognize that it is not easy for everyone to just abstain from alcohol at a moment’s notice, especially if it’s serving a significant purpose.

Over the course of the week, Chris Walters, Health Educator in the Wellness Resource Center, will hold open office hours for any student interested in discussing their own alcohol use, how to talk to a friend who’s abusing alcohol, setting up a process to cut down or eliminate use, and finding healthier alternatives to serve needs that are being treated with alcohol. Also, stop by our table on Thursday (April 5th), National Alcohol Screening Day, for information on alcohol abuse and free Alcohol Use Disorder screening forms.

Open Office Hours the week of April 1st:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3-5pm in Worner 221

And be sure to follow the WRC on Facebook and Instagram for daily information and motivation to encourage you throughout the week!
