We all are here (in Platteville) to continue our education. Though we all come from different places. Each of us all having our own: backgrounds, culture, and personality. With this bulletin, this is a chance to place a pin on where you are from and to take a chance to appreciate where we all come from. Though we are all different people with different backgrounds, we all make up what consist of the wing, hall, and student population at UW-Platteville.
The end of October is approaching. Although a very common holiday around this time is Halloween, there is another holiday that is celebrated that is not as well known. That holday is Día de los Muertos! It begins on October 31st, but it celebrated on November 1st and 2nd. It’s also one of the oldest holidays celebrated in the modern world. When you have a chance, check it out! I hope you learn something new from it!
Hey all! There is a new bulletin up! It contains statistics of the LGBTQ+ community, thus Stats of the Rainbow, get it? There is many statistics about what people in the LGBTQ+ plus community go through. If you tell me something new you learned from this bulletin and your thoughts on it, I’ll give you a small packet of Skittles, since the title is based off Skittles catch phrase. I hope you learn something new that you didn’t know!
On Sunday, UWP hosted the Peterson Farm Bros for the United We Stand Lecture. Only one of them showed, who is named Greg, while the other two were busy working. These farm bros have a YouTube channel where they put vlog videos and their famous music parody videos. The biggest take away we had from the lecture was how they educate about farm life through music. Through their music, they promote diversity of agriculture, which isn’t a common one, and help show it’s importance through YouTube. Their website can be found here: https://petersonfarmbrothers.com/ and their YouTube channel can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/petersonfarmbros. Check them out! They have some pretty catchy and entertaining song parodies!
I got to put up a bulletin board on some very amazing people. Michael Jordan and other people are up there talking about what they all accomplished so far in their lives. Each person has accomplished some great things in their lives and have impacted their line of work in special ways.
The chancellor came out to Pickard to answer some questions and talk to the residents. It was a blast and he got to answer a bunch of different types of questions. Kieth and Sam went and asked a question or two. I feel like they had a good time there listening to what the chancellor had to say. We got to learn a lot about what the chancellor likes to do in his free time.
I got a board up about Hanukkah with the celebration coming up soon. I thought that with it being a season of many holidays that it would be a good idea to put one up about a holiday that can sometimes not be known about. This way people can go and learn about the history, foods served around the time, and what the celebration usually looks like.
