Autism Speaks U to soon debut on Xavier's campus

One of the newest clubs on campus is Autism Speaks U.
"Autism Speaks U was founded to improve the lives of those with autism by funding global, biomedical research to the causes, treatments and better diagnosis of autism," Emily Riepenhoff, Autism Speaks U president, said.
"Autism Speaks U is an initiative that supports college students in awareness, advocacy and fundraising efforts for Autism Speaks" Riepenhoff said.
The club hopes to raise awareness and get students involved. Students who join the club will engage in fundraisers and other awareness activities.
"It is my hope that, by starting this club, I, along with the executive board, can try to shine some light on autism," Riepenhoff said."Participation is key. Tell your friends, tell your friends' friends, make it your Facebook status, tweet about it-- we just want to get people to be a part of our chapter."
Students who want to get involved are encouraged to start attending club meetings in order to stay aware of upcoming events.
They will be at the Health and Wellness Fair on Oct. 3 and the second general meeting will be that night at 8:30 p.m. in Gallagher Student Center Clock Tower Lounge.
Students can also register at www.autismspeaks.org/u or email
autismspeaksxu@gmail.com for questions.
