APSU This Week: Govs football hopes to follow up on its rout of Jacksonville State
(Posted Oct. 7, 2019)
The Governors hope to protect the Fort again following their Sept. 28 rout of conference rival (and then No. 11-ranked) Jacksonville State and the subsequent bye week. The Govs host Southeast Missouri at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12.
The Redhawks (3-2, 1-0 in the conference) qualified for the FCS playoffs last year and are coming into the game after defeating Tennessee Tech 43-37 in two overtimes last week.
The Governors ask everyone to wear white for a White Out! That accompanies two other promotions: Monocle Society Day and Youth and Team Day. Also, arrive before the game for the Stache Street’s trucks, music and inflatables.

Level 10 Technology is hosting a special presentation titled “Dangers of Social Media” 5-7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, at Austin Peay’s Clement Auditorium.
The event is open to the public – but especially faculty and students with minors – to explore such topics as children’s online footprints, social media apps, types of human trafficking, online predators, how to keep your child safe online and monitoring software.
Representatives from the FBI and the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office will participate in the presentation.

Mental Health Awareness Week
Join the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for a week of conversation and activity in the hope to break the stigma of mental health. The goal is to reach all students to bring awareness to mental health, provide avenues of comfort and bring the realization that it’s OK not to be OK.
Events include free popsicles at 6 p.m. Tuesday’s “Destress Paint Converse Play” at the beach volleyball courts and free wristbands at the volleyball game against Murray State on Wednesday. Events are planned all week, find details at @apsu_saac on Twitter and @apsusaac on Instagram.
‘Do it’ exhibit continues
Austin Peay State University’s 10-week run of the international “do it” exhibit continues at The New Gallery in the Art + Design building on campus. The exhibit runs through Dec. 6.
“Do it” is a 26-year global phenomenon that is a compendium of 400 written instructions by artists interpreted anew every time they are enacted. The New Gallery will have 22 sets of instructions by artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Adrian Piper, Yoko Ono, Alison Knowles, Sol LeWitt, David Lynch and Joan Jonas.
The works range from whimsical to abstract, but all are meant to provoke thought and engagement. Students will create some of these works, while some will be created via the interaction of the public.

The Governors will host rival Murray State in the First Financial Battle of the Border at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the Winfield Dunn Center. The Govs are entering the contest after beating UT Martin 3-1 on Saturday, improving to 3-1 in conference play.
