Alum Success

Jacey Cook

"I am currently enrolled in graduate school, doing both therapy and diagnostic testing with a multitude of age ranges. In therapy, I work with children, adolescents, adults and also provide marriage counseling, parent guidance and family therapy. Diagnostic testing gives me an opportunity to work with a wide range of referral questions such as learning difficulties, attention difficulties, gastric bypass evaluations, intellectual and personality measures. Lake Superior State University gave me a strong background in statistics and other courses that provided me with the skills to success and prepared me for graduate school."

April is National Humor Month

Calling all April Fools! It’s National Humor Month—a time for joking, joshing and just plain laughing out loud. And while, yes, April can be a stressful month, a dose of humor may be just what your student needs to make it through.

Here are a few ways to share the mirth:

  • Send along a “Chuckle Chow” care package. It can include anything funny like a Snickers (tee-hee!) bar, those smiling Oreos, Laffy Taffy, smiley lollipops and more. Feed their laughter while also providing fun treats!
  • Stick a book of Mad Libs or a goofy joke book in an envelope and send it along. Cover the envelope with smiley face stickers for a real Humor Month package.
  • Sign emails with funny wordplays such as “Jest thinking of you!” or “Hope you get some smileage out of this.” Your student will think you’re a cornball yet she’ll probably love it!
  • Suggest to your student that you think about some creative, funny ways to respond to people’s polite question: “How are you?” Answer them with something like “If I was any better, I’d be twins!”
  • At your next family gathering, firehouse, PTA or Junior League meeting, ask group members to pose for a photo. The catch? Have everyone wear a bright red clown nose! Then, send a digital photo to your student. He’ll think you’re all off your rocker! Yet, chances are that he’ll show that photo to his friends, proudly.
  • Trace a roll of masking tape on bright yellow paper and cut out a bunch of smiley faces. Have everyone in the family—or in the neighborhood—write a joke or note on the back of a smiley. Then send an envelope full of the good feelings to your student at school. It’s a Smile Attack!

Have fun with the funny stuff!

Pun Fun

"Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place."
