In order to tie into the Floor’s Earth Day Theme, I created some globe door decs! I wanted these door decs to remind us about our Earth’s many offerings and encourage us to get out and explore what we can! While we focus on our Earth’s health this month, it is also a reminder to look at ourselves and make sure we’re doing what we can for our personal health too. As the weather gets warmer I would like to encourage all of you to spend some time outside, walking around campus, hanging out with friends, or just switching up your studying location! What are your favorite ways to utilize the nicer weather while you’re here at school? Feel free to respond in the comments section or talk to me in person about more ideas for getting out and moving!
Stop by the elevator bay and check out these healthy ideas of things to do over spring break! We have all been working really hard over these past few weeks and this break offers a good chance to reflect and de-stress. I hope that everyone has a safe, healthy, and relaxing break, to promote this idea further, there are some posters up on the wall that offer some ideas as to things we could all do to improve our health. What activities are you looking forward to over break? Do you think you’ll try any of the suggest activities? Feel free to comment your thoughts and opinions in the comment section!
Last night we had the opportunity to watch a very exciting and tough game for the Pioneer Men’s Basketball team. After a tough start, they were able to take back the lead in an exciting second half; but unfortunately, they couldn’t keep the lead and lost 66-71. We talked about the training that the team goes through and discussed the technique that the players were using to roll out during the warm-up. We then discussed various work out routines that work well for us, and how they vary from when we’re at home. What do you all do to stay physically active on campus?Does this differ from when you’re at home?
Do you know the symptoms of cold and flu? Are you able to tell the difference between the two? Cold and flu symptoms are very similar and are hard to tell the difference between. You can have symptoms of both at the same time. This new board helps differentiate the symptoms between the two. The purple minion and information in purple represent the flu whereas the yellow represents the cold. It also contains information on what you can do to prevent yourself from becoming sick. Be sure to check out this board and learn which symptoms go with what sickness.
I have put up a new bulletin board on the wall of the wing. This board matches the dress door decs that I made and contains a variety of Breast Cancer facts. I would suggest reading the facts because a lot of the information I didn’t know and it surprised me. Breast Cancer is a serious thing and I hope that one day we will find a cure for it.
On September 15th at 7pm Southwest hosted its FNC (Friday Night Club) SnazzyBall. This was the second FNC of the school year and it was a ton of fun and there was a great turn out! It was essentially volleyball in “fancy” clothes. We had 2 volleyball games going on at once and we rotated the teams. When you weren’t playing, there was passed appetizers as well as other snacks and sparkling apple cider to drink out of champagne flutes. If you didn’t want to play volleyball, you could play corn hole instead. We had a LED volleyball, glow in the dark tape, and glow in the dark corn hole. There was a championship game held at 8:30pm for the 2 best dressed teams. Thank you to everyone who attended and congrats to the team that won.
