Puppies!!!!

Emily (from 3rd floor) and I teamed up with CPR to bring puppies to campus for a stress reliever and a pick me up. It was an awesome experience to work with such and amazing group on campus. Now as the event has taken place we have a little more knowledge on how to do…

Your Reward

On the wing this semester I created an academic initiative that involved different rewards for different grades on quizzes, exams, and finals. The whole point of this was to reward residents for their hard work, as well as to give them an incentive to do well in class. I thought including quizzes was important because…

Make Your Own

Last Wednesday was the night for crafts when 4 west took over the hallway and made personalized door decs. While making them regularly may be my job, I usually don’t get to be as creative making 50 as you can be making one. It was amazing to see what was made (pictures to follow) and…

Ornaments

We made ornaments and wreaths out of yarn, and other ornaments out of paper mache (which ever was preferred). These are great little presents you can give to your family or in the case of a few, we will be going next week to give them to their favorite professor, just to say thank you.

De-stress Presents

For finals this year, I have given everyone de-stress presents as door decs. What are these presents you ask? Behind the ribbon and wrapping paper lies a coloring page from a Japanese garden adult coloring book, and a piece of bubble wrap. Though the bubble wrap is small, is it ever truly large enough? I…

Paint and Punch

One of the Friday FNC’s this year was a paint and punch event where the Wilgus staff had three ready made designs for people to copy onto canvas, coloring for those that did not want to paint, and of course refreshments for those who wanted them. While the staff was nice enough to provided some…

Cake Walk Bake Off

Thank you to those that came over Monday and Tuesday to help make items for Cake Walk. There is so much that was done that couldn’t have been without your help. I really hope that for those that didn’t help bake, that you went and experienced Cake Walk itself, because that is not an event…

Tea Time Tuesdays

As the RA on this wing I am here to be a resource so every other Tuesday. I will make sure to be in my suite common area, door open and water at the ready for tea or hot chocolate. This is a specific time designated to you. If you need someone to vent to,…

Take What You Need

Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know about the new “posters” by each of your doors. I have made these inspirational posters so if you are having a rough day, you can grab a word from the bottom and take that feeling with you throughout your day. Whether you need hope, acceptance, confidence,…

Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining

Hey everyone, I just wanted to draw your attention to the new door decs that have found their way to your doors. They are all clouds that have each been made out of 10 circles but each one is unique. This serves to remind you all that although we may all share similar experiences, we…

Random Acts of Kindness

As some of you may know, today is national random acts of kindness day. In celebration, Taylor and I have put up a bulletin board in the elevator bay of different suggestions for random acts of kindness that you can do today. Enjoy  

Goal Ball Machine

Hey everyone! I jut wanted to draw your attention to the new bulletin board in our hallway. It is a goal ball machine, so you can add your own goals for the semester. I know from experience that it is much easier to stick to a goal when you write it down! I hope setting…
