Stand up Saturday was on September 16th, 2017, so a few of my residents and I decided to go see Sammy Obeid (the stand up comedian). He was extremely funny with several jokes that catered to most of the audience! At one point, some of my residents and I were almost in tears because we were laughing so hard. Overall, we had a blast!
On September 1st, 2017, I hung up my safari men door decorations around the wing to follow along with the theme of safari and jungle! When residents see these door decorations for the first time moving in, they feel instantly welcome to their rooms. It also allows them to find their rooms more easily which makes life in the wing slightly more convenient.
On September 1st, 2017, I hung these bulletins up so that my residents could get to know me, so they feel welcome when they move in. However, I wanted to also give my residents a sneak preview of some of the campus resources located around campus that could help residents out if they are in a pinch. Giving the residents knowledge on campus resources is the first step in helping them find success.
On September 8th, 2017, we had a massive Nerf war over in 4 North of hugunin! We had upwards to thirty people join the event, and we opened up some of the doors to make running for cover easier. We spent pretty close to two hours playing, and it seemed like the residents truly enjoyed it. Most of the people asked that we do it again in the future.
On September 9th, 2017, a bunch of us, the RAs, brought residents to the Stand up Saturday show to see Mat LaVore hypnotize people and show us tricks that completely blew our minds. Some of us had never been to a show like this before, so when he did a bunch of his tricks, we were practically speechless.
On September 3, 2017 I invited a few residents to come down to bridgefest to check out a bunch of the programs that the school has to offer like paintball, workplace opportunities, and simply to have a ton of fun. I saw Paul, Evan, Matt, Cory, and Caleb at the event and they were having a blast meeting new people. I even suggested a few clubs to them to get them started in becoming more involved with the school.
We, as a wing, had a fantastic time with the icebreaker, and it showed that we came together as a wing to get to know each other. We played the game “hot pepper” where the leader would start in the middle of the group and close their eyes and say hot. The group outside the leader would start handing off an object around called the “pepper” all while they had their eyes closed. Once the leader in the center said, “pepper”, whoever was holding the pepper would become the new leader. Everyone on the wing enjoyed it, and it seemed to spark some chit chat among everyone. We had a blast and then everyone went to play fair. This was as of September 2, 2017.
On April 15th, 2017, Hugunin Hall created an event called “Circle Smackdown”. It was an event with people playing volleyball in a tournament. In order for a team to register and play, they needed a faculty member to be on there team. We had 4 teams play and it was very eventful! There was also popcorn and water given out to people. It was great and really relaxing on a beautiful April day!

On March 25th, 2017, 4 south decided to have a fun movie night! We had a projector and hooked it up in the lounge to watch netflix movies! We joked around and had a blast! The projector creates a big picture screen that can measure up to 60 inches on the wall! It was a great time!
On March 24th, 2017, our floor in 4 south decided to watch the Badger game! It was a great and sad end to our dear beloved badger nation, but they fought hard. We watched the game from a projector in the 4 south lounge. It was a great bonding time! Special thanks to Edwin Barerra for setting it up and organizing it!
