What’s the one thing we all want in college, but we never get enough of it? If you guessed sleep, you would be correct. RA’s Alex and Michaela put up a new bulletin board in the elevator bay. On the purple side of the board are facts about the dangers of not getting enough sleep. I know a lot of us think we can get by with just a few hours, but in reality we need more. If you consistently go with not getting enough sleep you can have some serious health issues spring up. On the gray side of the board are tips about how to get a good night’s sleep. Sleep is an easy health topic to talk about, but it is also a serious one. What are some ways that help you get to sleep? Post your answers on the Discussion page.
On Sunday April 23rd the MS Walk took place. The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness about MS as well as money to help find a cure. I want to thank everyone that came out and walked the 3 miles around Platteville. We had the perfect weather for it and it was a lot of fun.
There is a new bulletin board up on the wing just past the first 2 rooms. This board is all about the different colors of urine and what can cause that coloration. I decided to choose this board because I thought it would be very interesting and it’s something different. Be sure to take a look and see what your urine color tells you about your health!
Last night was mine and Taylors cooking in a mug program. The purpose of the program was to show people that you can cook some delicious and healthy on the go meals in a mug! We had lots of fun showing people how to make french toast, mac and cheese, and a brownie. It was a very social event with lots of jokes and just a nice relaxed atmosphere. Those that had signed up got a free mug with the ingredients for the recipes and everyone that came recieved a cookbook. Thank you to Colton for coming down and joining in on the fun!
On Friday February 24th, we had our FNC which was called Neighborhood Games in the PAC. It was a ton of fun and we had a really good turn out. We had over 100 people show up to play volleyball, dodgeball, and basketball. Everyone had a blast and most of them stayed until the end. Thank you to everyone who came out.
To go along with the new bulletin board, I also made pumpkin door decs. Each door dec also includes an eye opening alcohol fact and no two are alike. I strongly encourage you to go around the wing and read everyone’s fact as well as knock on their door and say hi. Have a safe and Happy Halloween.
In honor of Halloween, I decided to put up a bulletin board up on alcohol safety. This board contains tips for safe drinking, what “a drink” actually is, symptoms of alcohol poisoning, and ways to prevent a hangover. This is also an interactive board with slips that you can take that allow you to calculate your estimated BAC. Please be sure to take a slip and keep it with you when you are out drinking. Also be sure to check out this Halloween board!
