This last Tuesday we had two professor’s join us for our last Pizza with the Profs of the semester. Those professors were: Lynette Dornak from the Geography Department, and Gene Tesdahl (the bow tie guy) from the History Department. Sean and Nick K came down to hear what the professors had to say as well as ask any questions that they may have. Pizza with the Profs is a nice time since it is nice to be able to get to know a professor outside of the classroom. I linked each professor’s page as a hyperlink of their name. Check them out if you have a chance!
There is a new board on the wing about saving that energy. With winter, we use a lot of energy beecause the days are shorter and it’s cold so we spend more time inside. You’ll find some good tips which even some of them I didn’t know before this. Check it on out and learn how you can save some of that energy.
Last Thursday a collaborative hall program to play Poker happened in Porter. A number of people from Pickard attended there including residents of 1 East: Jonas, Sean, Bobby, and Michael from 2 West. We had a good time and it was a great chance to get to know one each other as well!
Last week, we had three others join Sean and I with Swing Dancing! Bobby, Austin, and Elliot (who is an honorary resident) were able to join in for the first hour of Swing Dance Club for the lesson. I talked to them after and they told me they enjoyed it some but found it interesting. I talked to them about the benefits of swing dance outside of the social aspect. How it is good cardio especially when you learn more advanced moves and can do them. When I later talked to Bobby a few days later, he said swing dance wasn’t what he expected it to be, but it sounded like he did enjoy it more that thought. Although they said they aren’t big dancers, I do hope that they and others do come to Swing Dance Club more to try it out more.
It’s that time of the semester, class registration. I can definitely say that I struggled with this the first time I did it. That’s why I made a bulletin about it! It includes steps on how what I have learned is the best way to do this, without taking too many extra steps, as well as just some good pointers on what to do. Added bonus: if you ask me why the board is in Ramsey Beckman’s honor, you will get an answer as well as a small reward! I hope this is helpful to some of you!
If there is one thing that I have learned in college and that is how great it is with how friendly people are. What started off as Emily and I hanging out, with some people coming in, turned into a hang out consisting of some residents, and staff. This included: Connor, Sean, Brent, Tyler, a few people who stopped by including Joseph, and the RD herself (Nicole)! One thing I have always enjoyed college is how friendly and casual people are about just hanging out. Perfect 5/7, would definitely do again!
Last Tuesday I held a time where I wanted to take some residents to Swing Dance Club to help show them a club that I find very enjoyable myself. Although some were not able to make it, Sean was able to! We had a good time and he learned lots of new things! At the end of the night when we talking about it, he said that Swing Dance Club has a new member. Although somethings out there may not seem too interesting to start, it is worth to try new things for you might find that you enjoy it!
