In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I made a bulletin board where residents can write what they are thankful for. Many residents have similar things they are thankful for or some unique things which allows us to learn even more about one another. So far there have been wonderful things written!
2 South now has a compost bucket in the microwave room! This keeps certain waste out of landfills that will pile up for years. The compost gets dumped in the edible garden on campus.
In Nemo, he jokes with his friends about swimming far out in the ocean to touch the butt which is actually a boat. I took this scene from Nemo to talk about consent. Although this is a fun board, the content is still very important. I talked about the definition of consent and how it’s always freely given. I also put down where someone could go to talk about consent or if they have any questions, (counseling services in Royce Hall).
This bulletin board is all about tools on how to succeed in college and get you to your dream job. These tips can also help you with your career.
Many animals are negatively impacted by pollution. Fish can have plastic rings wrapped around their stomachs causing that part of their body not to grow. The pollution can give fish disease and make humans sick from eating sick fish. I made this fish bulletin board completely out of materials I had in my room to show recycling. It’s important to reduce, reuse, and recycle to save our planet and all the animals.
I intend to do wing dinners on the first Wednesday of every month. I think this is a great opportunity for the wing to get to know one another better. A few girls discovered they would walk passed each other and want to say hi but weren’t sure if they should. Now those girls can say hi to each other and talk to each other more. This also allowed for me to get to know some of them better and plan other programs for the future.
Day Of The Dead is October 31st through November 2nd. It’s a Mexican holiday to remember and pray for loved ones who have passed away and guide them through their spiritual journey. Many women wear traditional Mexican dresses, like the door decoration I made. I think it’s important to remember Halloween isn’t the only holiday celebrated in fall and it’s interesting to learn about or even celebrate others.
I gave my residents a globe to color that opens up with lined paper inside so they can write about where they want to explore and why. Some of my residents have already colored them and put the continent they want to go to on their globe. I can’t wait to see them colored and know where people want to explore!
