This week we have been having a program in the lobby from 8-9 pm for career fair prep. This is a great time to look over your resume and even print 5 copies on resume paper for free. There is also an ironing station and we are more than willing to give you advice on the what to do and what not to do. Thank you to all of you who supported our event. I hope you all had an opportunity to go to the career fair and put your name out there.
Hello 4 east residents!
On Saturday, September 26th I will be setting up a badminton net outside off of the patio. I will have it set up by 2 pm. We could play singles or doubles. Either way, it should be a fun time full of good competition and letting everyone l get to know each other better. I hope to see you all there!

Tomorrow, Saturday, September 19th is student appreciation day at the football game! This means that there will be some free prizes as well as a couple drawings for scholarships, housing credit, and dining dollars. This is going to be a great event and if you would like to attend let me know. I will probably be leaving around 12:30.
I have recently put up a new bulletin board, on the wall, about the career fair. It is full of great tips about what to wear, how to write your resume and cover letter, and also some information about the time and date of the event that might have your major. I encourage all of you to go to the career fair. It is a great way to put yourself out there and plan for your future after college.
Tonight, some 4 east residents and I got the chance to watch the movie Divergent and eat pizza. This movie tells the story of 5 factions. Everyone has their place and they only do what they are told to do. Except for the divergent. The divergent have the ability to be every faction. In the beginning they have to take a test that tells them which faction they truly belong to, but not always do the test results become real. They say that you should trust the test, but only you will know who you truly are. I have uploaded a link for an online quiz to find out which faction you would belong to. Even though you take the test it doesn’t define you. Only you can control who you are and no test can change that.
Below is a picture of a Here I Stand pledge. This pledge is to stand up for what you believe or what you feel passionate about with hate, bias and bullying. The traits are around the outside edge of the card. If you would like to stand up for and take the pledge, either send me an email or go to the front desk and ask for a Here I Stand pledge. When you are finished with it. Then we can tape it up on the wall in the lobby and you can receive a paper with the trait you are standing for. This paper can hang up in your room, outside your door, or you can just keep it to hold on to. I encourage you all to fill out a pledge and stand up against hate, bias and bullying.
