The Anonymous People
The NDSU Counseling Center, in collaboration with NDSU’s Office of Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Programs and Campus Attractions, is excited to show The Anonymous People as part of our Transforming Youth Recovery (TYR) Initiative. The focus of the Initiative is to build awareness and support within the NDSU community for our students currently in recovery or choosing to live a sober lifestyle.
Anonymous People, a documentary film about the 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, will be shown on Wednesday, April 1st (6:00 PM, Century Theater). For more information about the film please see: www.manyfaces1voice.org/. At the conclusion of the film, a distinguished panel including Dr. Todd Lewis – NDSU Counselor Education, Mike Kaspari , RN – agency director of First Step Recovery, and Kevin Doran – NDSU student will discuss personal stories, challenges associated with stigma, and building a community that supports recovery. Our overall intent is to educate the campus-community about the recovery process and the recovery movement, so that we can better empower our students.

Help Support the the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities'
A Pepsi Recycling center that was recently installed in the Memorial Union.
To help PepsiCo reach its goal of increasing the U.S. beverage container recycling rate to 50 percent by 2018, PepsiCo created the Dream Machine recycling initiative. Dream Machines are interactive kiosks that provide students and college and university communities with an easy, convenient and rewarding way to make a difference by recycling their bottles and cans on the go. For every bottle or can students place in the Dream Machine, they receive reward points to redeem for prizes, including local entertainment, dining and more. It's a win-win for everyone.
When you recycle your bottles and cans with PepsiCo Recycling, we provide dedicated support to further the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities' mission to provide training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities resulting from military service.
$2 Million - Pepsico is donating up to $2 Million to EBV with $1.5 million donate since 2010
4.1 Million - pounds of recycled bottles and cans have been collected via PepsiCo Recycling to support EBV.
