Your Mental Health During COVID

The Saint Ignatius Business Society thanks Dr. Nneka Onyezia '99, Clinical Psychologist, for providing insights on mental health signs and solutions during COVID-19. The top themes from the discussion were: Hitting the pandemic wall and giving ourselves grace; creating a sleep schedule by working backwards from when you want to wake up and then putting down distractions 30 minutes prior; focusing on the important things instead of stressors; having shorter, more frequent Zoom or video call sessions with relatives are better; making self-care a priority; setting personal/professional boundaries; and, finding the right therapist involves asking a lot of questions to make sure you are comfortable with them. You may contact Nneka at Nneka@nnekaonyezia.com or 312-725-0225. 

9th Annual Business Society Luncheon

On November 15th we welcomed a record crowd of almost 350 alumni, students, parents (past/present), and friends of Saint Ignatius to the Union League Club. Thank you to our sponsors and table hosts for helping to fill the room. We hope you all enjoyed the opportunity to connect with other Ignatians in a variety of fields and careers. Our four awardees shared many takeaways with us but what shined through most in their remarks was the importance of family and need for continuous innovation. Thank you for being a part of our efforts to build a strong and impactful business community at Saint Ignatius. See below for more ways to get involved.
