Boxes and Walls

Tonight I went to the Boxes and Walls diversity event with a resident. This event had rooms lined with articles, pictures, and facts about a diverse array of topics. It was a lot of information to take in, but was good to see.

Winter Door Decs

With the new semester, comes a new set of door decs. I specifically chose snowflakes to represent how each resident is unique just like a snowflake. I also chose different color backgrounds to make them even more diverse. Each person has a different background, and we have to learn to appreciate them for who they are.

Birthday Board

An updated birthday board has been put up. This has all of the resident’s birthdays listed. This allows residents to know when someone’s birthday is coming up so they can wish them a happy birthday. #APlaceToBelong

Procrastination Bulletin Board

To start off the new semester, new bulletin boards have been put up. The first is a procrastination bulletin board that talks about characteristics of procrastination, the inner workings, and tools to help. This board is meant to remind residents to stay on top of school work as it is assigned.

Diversity Cupcakes

On Wednesday, two RAs in Brockert Hall put on a diversity event. It involved cupcakes and various different toppings. The cupcakes, and every individual topping represented a different aspect of peoples lives. Each person that attended got to make their cupcake according to themself. At the end the RAs putting the event on had us reflect on each of the toppings. All who attended, including one resident from 1 North, learned a little and got to enjoy a cupcake.

Hidden Bias

A new bulletin board was put up in 1 North. It is a hidden bias bulletin board, which defines, stereotype, prejudice, and discrimination. It covers many of the common hidden bias’ that people have, and make anyone who reads the board aware of them if they weren’t previously.
