The Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response is hosting events centered on self-care in the undergraduate houses as part of its efforts to increase engagement with students.

As part of the initiative — which began on April 10 and will continue through May 2 — OSAPR has held nighttime events in upperclassman house dining halls and other campus locations involving activities to promote self-care. OSAPR has already held events in houses including Mather, Winthrop, Kirkland, Lowell, Dunster, and Cabot. Their most recent event took place in Leverett House Thursday, according OSAPR Director Pierre R. Berastaín Ojeda ’10.

The events revolve around a variety of calming do-it-yourself stations, including stress balls, drawing, aromatherapy jewelry, body scrubs, “affirmation cards,” gratitude letters, and a discussion board where students can write their thoughts on the importance of self-care.
