We held a tie dyeing event as an end of the year stress reliever. With finals coming up, stress is at an all time high and crafts such as tie dyeing are a great stress reliever. People brought their own article of clothing to tie dye and we provided the dye. This was a great activity and I can’t wait to see how they all turn out!
Hugunin hosted the annual Kooky Carnival on Saturday. There were games such as football toss, sack and egg races, Plinko, putt-putt golf, duck pond, basketball toss, and can toss. With every game, people received tickets and could turn those tickets in for yummy prizes! It was a great turn out!
I made a bulletin boards about naps! I put information up about different kinds of naps and how long someone should nap for it to be beneficial.
I created this bulletin board and asked residents for their stress-relief tips. Some people have ways to relieve stress that other people would love to try if they knew what it was. This gives others the opportunity to try new things and have less stress in their life.
Huge shout out to those who participated in tug of war! Especially Jennifer for stepping up 10 minutes before the event started and trying something new!
With this many people on campus and in such close proximity to one another, people are bound to get sick. With the Halloween festivities coming up, I thought I’d make a Halloween themed bulletin board and put up tips up on how to prevent getting sick. (Of course I had to make it punny.) I think it’s a cute way to remind people of the basics like washing hands but also to do things you wouldn’t normally think about, like using your own pencils and not borrowing someone else’s. Stay healthy!
On September 16th there was a Stand Up Saturday event. Sammy Obeid was the main comedian. He came to Platteville a few years ago and came back because Platteville loved him so much and he enjoyed performing for us. Some RA’s from Hugunin gathered up some residents and we all walked and sat together for this event. It was about an hour and we all had a few good laughs. I can’t wait for the next Stand Up Saturday.
A resident assistant from Brockert and two from Pickard helped me put on the Just Dance event for Circle Olympics. I was very happy to see how many people signed up from all three residence halls. We set it up so four people went at once and took the winner from all those rounds and had them compete for first, second, and third. Hugunin came in first (woohoo!) and Pickard came in second and third place. I think it was a lot of fun and was a great workout. Some residents had so much fun they even stayed back after the competition to dance with me. It was awesome and I would definitely put on this event again for fun.
Everyone likes to nap on the occasion. There are different types of naps, and each has it own benefits. Even people like Einstein and Brahms took naps to help them clear their minds. Naps should be short and just have one full sleep cycle to wake up thinking more clearly. At night however, sleeping in total darkness helps you fall asleep quicker and stay asleep better. The Bulletin Board by the drinking fountain has some more information about napping.
