The College community remembers Jennifer Rivera ’06SCE & ’13G, assistant director for disability support services in the Providence College Office of Academic Services, who died almost a year after being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

"She was a beloved colleague and friend to her coworkers and an invaluable mentor to her students," said Dr. Bryan D. Marinelli, director of academic services and the Writing Center at PC.

"The lengths that she would go to in supporting students with disabilities were truly awe-inspiring, and she never sought thanks or special recognition. She was satisfied knowing that she had done everything she could to support them to the best of her ability.”
As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, students participated in Fresh Check Day on Tuesday. The event is designed to encourage conversations about mental health and su***de prevention as well as to introduce students with mental health services on campus.

Fresh Check Day is sponsored by the Office of Residence Life, Personal Counseling Center, Providence College Campus Ministry, the Providence College Office of Academic Services, the Center for Orientation, Transitions, and Leadership, Student Activities and Cultural Programming, Providence College Friars, and a number of student organizations.
