Color the stress away.

Finals week is stressful. Grab a coloring sheet from the folder in the hallway and relieve some stress! It is also just a great way to express yourself!

Summer!

It’s not quite summer, but it’s close! There’s a new board up on third floor asking what your plans are for the summer. Hopefully you are looking forward to the summer and can use that excitement to finish the semester out strong. Please, share your plans for the summer! As always, please keep your responses appropriate. Thank you!

Milk and Cookies

Who doesn’t love a little milk and cookies? Well, last night in the LCCR we watched the  movie Milk while enjoying some milk and cookies. After that, there was a discussion about topics of gay rights and the LGBTQ+ community.

 

Night of Noise

lgEveryone deserves a second chance at prom! There was a Queer Prom this weekend in Wilgus to make some noise after day of silence. Day of silence is April 27th. It is a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to spread awareness of the bullying in the LGBTQ community.

Why am I wearing jeans?

In honor of denim day, we all gathered in the LCCR and decorated jeans with motivational words for sexual assault survivors. What is denim day?

“In 1997 in Italy, an 18 year old girl was raped by her 45 year old driving instructor, who was later convicted and sentenced to jail. The perpetrator appealed the sentence and his case was overturned by the Italian Supreme Court. The instructor was released and the Head Judge released a statement arguing that because she wore tight jeans, he assumed that she must have helped him remove her jeans and therefore, contented. Enraged by the verdict, women in the Italian Parliament launched into immediate action and protested by wearing jeans on the steps of the Italian Parliament building. This was the beginning of what had become a worldwide event and movement to wear jeans as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault.”

This is how denim day began. Please spread this story and support survivors!

Waffles!

Last night, a bunch of Wilgus residents went down to the LCCR to enjoy some waffles and pancakes! Some made waffle art and others just enjoyed the free snack. It was a great day to express yourself with food art, but also was a social event! There were a lot of great conversations going on. The waffles pictured below are not from the event.

Battleship

The Friday night club this week was Battleship hosted by McCoop. It was held at the Platteville pool. Teams of three were placed in canoes and had to scoop water into the other canoes. Once your canoe sinks, your team is out. Thanks for those of you who came to cheer us on and everyone who participated! It’s was a fun way to get some exercise!
