Autism Awareness

With April being Autism Awareness month, I decided to put up a board to inform the residents on what autism is and what researchers are doing to find the causes. This is a great board with great information for everyone around.

Wikipedia Game Night

A few of us played the Wikipedia Game the other night. For those who don’t know, the Wikipedia game is a trivia based game. Some questions are easy and some are hard, but they all make you think. We talked about some of them and laughed at most. Let me know if you’d like to play sometime!

Harry Potter and Social Justice 

Social Justice is becoming a pretty popular thing lately and it is something that everyone should be aware of. This board will tell you about some ways to just be better citizens. From checking your privilege to avoiding blind allegiance this board uses Harry Potter to teach these different topics.

Smoothie Time!

Tonight, 4 East and West got together for some smoothies and an academic chat. We talked about how fruits are really good for studying, certain ones are even better than others. We also asked each person, individually, how their semester is going academically.

This was a great program, where students could relax and reflect on their, hopefully, successful semester.

Election Night

On a night of historic magnitude, the residents sit in the lobby. Nervously anticipating the announcement of the next president of the U.S. No matter what side we are on, we are all Americans and we’ll all be affected by the outcome.
