21 Ways to Love your Friends

Hello everyone,

I know it is a bit past valentines day…. but I decided to put up a board called 21 ways to love your friends. It has different ways to love your friends and make them feel good. These aren’t hard things to do, but they require you to put effort into your friendships.



Recycle pledge

As many of you know, a few RAs and I walked around the building last night passing out candy and asking people to take a recycle pledge. This pledge encourages people to recycle and if southwest gets the most pledges then we get a pizza party for the whole hall. If you have not filled out this pledge, I highly recommend you do so. Search recycle pledge on the platteville page and it should come up.

Pool Party

On Friday night Southwest Hall hosted a Pool Party at the PAC. It was a chilly night but we had all sorts of snacks and games for people to play. Thank you to everyone who came out to support this event. The FNC for this week is Cupcake Wars hosted by Dobson and Wilgus. If you can attend, it would be a good one to go to!


Waste Warrior Training!

Hello Friends,

Earlier this week I attended a waste warrior training event in the student center. I learned about all kinds of new ways to recycle on our very own campus. I didnt even know we had some of these programs in place. We now have a compost bin in the community room and you can take old batteries and cell phones to the student center and throw them in the bin. If you have any questions feel free to ask me and dont forget to support recyclemania!

Have a great day!


Chancellor Visit

Tonight, in the MPR, Chancellor Dennis Shields came to visit. He was able to answer many questions asked by the residents who attended and we had a few residents from 4 East attend this event. It was a great event to attend and some very good points were made. I hope we can all learn from this and make our future better!


Boxes and Walls

Robyn, Sydney and I went and visited the Boxes and Walls presentation tonight. It was an awesome experience and I am glad that I got the chance to go through it again and give others the opportunity as well. There is still one day left if you haven’t gone yet.
