Students Helping Students makes strides beyond the track


While Little 500 events round off, and the weekend comes to a close, The IU Student Foundation concludes more than just the race, but rather an entire campaign called Students Helping Students. 

Beginning on Qualifications weekend, and ending the Sunday following the Little 500 race, the Students Helping Students campaign raises money to support a new student-focused benefactor each year. This year, mental health was at the forefront, partnering with the Office of the Chief Health Officer, to install a new balance room on campus. 

“They (OCHO) said, would you want a designated mental health room on campus where you could go, like the Kelley Balance Room, and we brought that idea to our committee and had them vote, and everyone agreed that was probably what we would use the most. So there’s going to be a spot like that on campus that is accessible to all IU students,” IUSF SHS Steering Committee member Natalie Manfredini said.
