World Religions B.B.

20171126_131930

Check out the new bulletin board to learn about some of the most prominent religions of the world. Whether you belong to one of the religions or not, it is still fun to learn about others and maybe understand them just a little more, which is always a good thing. Without understanding, the world could fall into indifference, which is a dangerous subject if you ask Elie Wiesel. Look up his speech if you want to learn more about him.

GLACURH 2017

We all had a fantastic time at the GLACURH conference this weekend. AKA Great Lakes Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls. There were 7 delegates from UW-Platteville that attended, including 5 from Morrow Hall, including 3 from 4 West. We gained more insight on what it means to be a leader and how we can be better ones. We also got to meet sooooo many different people from over 40 different schools. Each pin seen around our necks represents a delegate from a different school. This is a picture from the picture scavenger hunt. I thought we made great store mannequins.

Dangers of Alcohol

Unfortunately, alcohol usage is typically a social norm for college-aged students. In other words, if you go to college, people expect that you drink alcohol based on movies and pop culture, and such. This is an unfortunate case because in the midst of these expectations, what nobody tells you is the short and long-term dangers that alcohol can cause. Take a stop by the new bulletin board or research on your own to see what these bad side-effects can be. Change the social norm, challenge the status quo, choose wisely.

Halloween Football

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to come home with grass stains. Thanks to everyone who came out to play some football; it was a great time! Even when it’s cold outside, there’s always something physical you can do, whether its bundling up for outside (unless it is really cold) or going to the PAC. Remember to stay healthy in between studying for classes!
