Prevention and Wellness Services partners with Bloodworks Northwest to host a three-day blood drive each quarter. In addition to the large blood drives, there are 1-2 smaller drives during each quarter when the Bloodmobile is in Red Square and students, staff and faculty can donate. The Western campus community donates approximately 1,000 pints of blood each academic year. For more info, including dates and info on how to prepare, visit our Blood Drives page!

Western's Counseling Center and Prevention and Wellness Services have formed a new student-support group, the First Generation Empowerment Group, to assist students with many of the common problems they face, from moving away from home to support in navigating the college and university system with the goal of creating a supportive group experience with fellow first-generation students. The group meets on Wednesdays from 4-5:30 p.m. in VU 432.
