April Calendar

Ongoing Events

The following programs will run through May 11 and are open to all ND parenting, married, or pregnant students as well as family members. All events are at the Family Resource Center at Beichner Hall unless otherwise noted. Coffee, snacks, and water are always available. 

FRC Walking Club

Thursdays and Fridays 9am - 1pm

Walkers (with or without strollers) are invited to stroll the blue, gold and green trails outside Beichner Hall as a fitness activity any time we're open. You'll begin by checking-in at the Beichner Hall's Welcome Desk. The goal of this program is to encourage fitness and to get you our of your house!  Success is tracked by number of days you have walked rather than miles. Bottled water and healthy snacks will be available at the end. 
Looking for someone to walk with?  Meet-ups will take place at 10 am and 11 am on Thursday and Friday..  ND's COVID-19 policies will be in place.

Fitness and Activities Trail

Saturdays 10am - 1pm

Time to get your kids up and moving!   Designed as a self-paced activity, children participants will visit different activities stations and try a fitness skill such as our stepping stones and basketball free-throws.  This event is weather dependent.  The FRC opens at 9 am on Saturdays if you want to give us a call and check to see if we have set the activity trail up. 

FRC members: Due to forecast of study rain and possible thunderstorms for Saturday, April 10, the children's fitness and activity trail will not be open. We'll be back in action on Saturday, April 17, when hopefully, the weather is better

We will learn how to resolve conflicts, create common ground, achieve greater levels of intimacy, and handle issues surrounding sex, money, work, family and more.
