Identity Development

Goal-Ball Machine

Similar to the beginning of the year, the Goal-Ball machine is designed to help residents think about and write down their goals and plans. Instead of for the school year, I encourage residents to write down a goal they have for 2018. Having ideas for goals is beneficial because it helps students visualize an end ambition to strive for. Achievable goals motivate students to work earnestly and push themselves beyond their comfort zone. This also leads students to become aware of their capabilities, strengths, and possibly weaknesses.

The board is located in the 2nd floor lounge.


What Time is it?

Have you ever wondered what time you can run to the Bears Den to print off an essay or when is the latest time you can grab a quick snack? Well look no further! This board shows opening and closing times for each day of the week, from the Karrmann Library to Student Health Services.


Holiday Cookie Gala

Bryn and I teamed up to make a holiday party for the residents to enjoy before the stress of finals week. We had sugar cookies to decorate, Oreos, Chips Ahoy, hot chocolate, candy canes, and more! It was a lot of fun to relax and hang out with friends before we all leave for a few weeks. Best of luck to everybody on their finals, and have a safe and happy Winter Break!


Mental Illness Awareness

Aidan and I teamed up to make this bulletin board that discusses mental illnesses. Adian talked to Dr. Marc Wruble of the Psychology Department, who suggested we provide more information on Major Depression Disorder (MDD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Schizophrenia, and Bipolar. It’s important and informational to discuss major mental illnesses to understand what they are and stop the stigma that follow them. Feel free to stop by the 2nd floor lounge and flip up the pages to learn about different mental illnesses.
