Ongoing Intramural Sports in January: Student Intramural Coordinators Needed!  

November 29, 2022

Starting in January, Campus Well-Being will be expanding our intramural sport schedule to include more sports, more often. Intramural sports provide students an opportunity to participate in recreational sport activities on campus in a safe and supportive environment.  

Volunteer to Help Out

Students are encouraged to volunteer to become an Intramural Sport Coordinator to help plan and run intramural sport events. This is a great opportunity to meet other students, coordinate a sport of your choice, or help to make other sports a positive experience for everyone.  

Volunteer Coordinators will be responsible for creating teams and explaining the rules of the game while promoting inclusiveness, sportsmanship, and fair play. Intramural Sport Coordinators can participate in the sport they are facilitating. The ideal candidates have a passion for sport & recreation, can communicate effectively, and are eager to use and enhance their leadership abilities.  

Each volunteer will work with our Sport and Fitness Supervisor and complete up to 12 hours of service. Upon completion of service, all volunteers will be provided with a certificate of service and will be invited to an appreciation event. Volunteers who display exceptional service may request letters of recommendation for awards.   

Get in Touch

Please email Davis Chase if you’re interested in becoming an Intramural Sport Coordinator or if you have any questions about Intramural Sport.

Darker Days Getting You Down?

November 14, 2022

RRC Polytech Libraries offer light therapy stations and portable lamps for borrowing.

Due to our northern latitude, many Manitobans experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), while others experience a milder form of winter blues. SAD is a form of depression that occurs mostly during the fall and winter months, when days shorten and sunlight decreases. 

Light Therapy

While regularly getting outside during daylight hours can help to ease this slump, many students and staff need to study or attend classes and meetings indoors when the sun is shining. In these cases, light therapy, sitting near a specialized light each day, is an alternative. Did you know that NDC and EDC campuses both have light therapy stations available for use in the Libraries? Additionally, our regional campuses also have these stations available for use.  

If you’ve been feeling changes to your mood, lower energy levels, or any of the symptoms listed below, you may want to give light therapy a try. Staff and students are invited to work or study at the station anytime the library is open. 

You may also loan a smaller, portable lamp from the circulation desk. That lamp may be used anywhere in the library that is near a power outlet. You’ll find instructions on proper use as well as important notes posted above the lamp. 

To be effective, light from the lamp must enter your eyes indirectly. While your eyes must be open, don’t look directly at the light. Keep your session to 30 minutes, unless otherwise directed by a physician. 

Symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) 

  • Feeling tired, depressed or sad 
  • Increased appetite 
  • Craving for carbohydrates and starchy foods 
  • Weight gain 
  • Sleeping more than usual 
  • Social withdrawal 
  • Lack of interest in usual activities 
  • Inability to concentrate or focus 
  • Loss of sexual desire 
  • Body aches and pains 

If you feel that you may be experiencing any form of depression, including SAD, please speak to your primary health care provider and/or book and appointment with Student Counselling Services

Movies for Mental Health: Register Today!

November 8, 2022

Red River College Polytechnic is hosting two Movies for Mental Health workshops that use the power of film to unite folks in community, connection, and conversation. These free events are delivered by a non-profit called Art With Impact, and will be hosted in person!  

The interactive experience will feature safe discussion on mental health, the stigma that frequently surrounds mental illness, and media portrayals of mental health issues. There will also be snacks. Following this will be a live screening of three award-winning short films and therapeutic activities to consciously connect minds and bodies. 

The event will culminate in a panel of lived-experience speakers and mental health resources, empowering participants to share our own stories and access support available at the College and in the community.  

Last year, students who attended found the workshop helped increase awareness of mental health, reduce stigma, and improve knowledge about where to go for help.
