The week before finals is a stressful time, so it’s a great time to relax. The residents of Southwest relaxed on Friday, December 15th by playing Mortal Kombat and eating some tasty homemade chili. The residents enjoyed playing against their friends to see who would win the classic game. Some of the rounds got heated, but it was good competition all atound. Other residents watched their friends playing and enjoyed some beef chili and white chicken chili. Overall the residents enjoyed hanging out and having fun before the stress of finals week.
It’s that time of the year. Thanksgiving is a great time of year because it allows us to reflect on what matters to us. Some people love the food or shopping that comes with the holiday while others like to spend time watching football and hanging out with family. You don’t need to be in a certain group to think about what you are thankful for. In the hallway on 5 West there is a little board that asks what you are thankful for. Feel free to take a few moments and write down what you are thankful for. What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? Post your answers in the Discussion page.

When suite forum met for the first time this semester we watched a classic, The Goonies. It was great to see everyone that came down to enjoy a very relaxing night with popcorn and a movie. Some people stayed for only an hour while others stayed the entire time but either way it was a great time.
We do have suite forum tomorrow night at 8:30pm. Most of you should know but in case you dont, suite forum is now every other week and it is more of a relaxed and social meeting. Each week that we have suite forum there will be a different activity or social event. On the weeks we don’t have suite forum, you will receive an email with information about programs and different events that are happening on campus. Be sure to check your email. 🙂
For the elevator bay bulletin board we decided to do something that is interactive. We want you to write down any of the goals you have for yourself for this semester. There are markers provided and please be appropriate. Also feel free to read what others have wrote as this is anonymous. This is also away to help hold yourself accountable for your goals.
