Yesterday I put up a diversity board that includes what diversity is, how it can be seen, and ideas around why its a great aspect to have. I hope this encourages conversations through the community so that the residents can learn more about one another.
Yesterday I had the chance to change up one of my boards and I put a quote outside of the bathroom. The quote is “We are all different, which is great because we are all unique. Without Diversity, life would be very boring”. This is from a motivational author, Catherine Pulsifer. She wrote the Motivational Wings series and this is one of the quotes she lives by. Everyone is different and we all have an uniqueness that pertains to us. But as a community we can learn about each other and help each other out.
On Tuesday night, residents of McGregor Hall had the opportunity to come and interact with Dr. Cummings. She is a faculty member here on campus in the engineering department. Dr. Cummings has a lot of knowledge of the life as an engineer after college and what steps that need to be taken after graduation. It was a very resourceful program for the residents and food and refreshments were also provided!
In the middle of some heavy exam weeks to come, stress can be a problem for some students. Finding were it comes from could be tricky and dealing with specific stress can create even more stress. This board includes some things that could be creating stress and some tips on how to deal with certain stresses.
Last night, the residents of 4th floor got together in the basement and enjoyed some packers and popcorn. The popcorn was great and the Packers winning was even better! It was a great turnout and it was an awesome night.
Last night, Brain and I were joined by Greg and Cody for some fresh salsa making. This event was held by the sustainability office here on campus. We got the chance to pick our own ingredients and mix it all together. It was a great way to learn a nice easy yet healthy snack that we can grow in our backyard!
