Last night the Ladies of Wilgus had the opportunity to hear from speaker Lamarr Womble. For the ladies who couldn’t attend the following will be highlights of his speech and the great information to take away from him.

  • When you give people opportunities, they can learn from those and this is the beginning of all dreams.
  • College isn’t meant to fill “your pail” but to light a fire instead.
  • Ever been told you can’t do what you love? Well if you don’t accept that, it won’t come true and you can push yourself to do whatever you desire in life.
  • The degree you earn cant define all your passions in life and is only the start of what you will/can do with your life and your passions.

The main take away from this speaker was to not loose your passion in life and don’t let others define what your passion is and how far it can take you. Strive for what you want and do what makes you feel fulfilled in this life.

For all the ladies who missed out on the great opportunity to see Monti Washington yesterday speak, I wanted to make sure that you all at least get the opportunity to know the main focuses of his speech. I found this United We Stand speaker to be one of the best ones the campus has had yet and everything he had to say was valuable.

1. Be Confident

2. Be tru, be you

3. FLY: First Love Yourself

4. Tell yourself everyday, that you are the sh*t

Monti Washington came from the streets to the stage and made his life what it is today. Here are some links to his pages to learn more about him and his process for you to do well in life and school. I encourage you all to look at the links and watch the videos.

Welcome weekend was a success and I got to paint some faces at the rockin’ bridge party! Here you can see Jen as a leopard and Devyn as an owl/sloth looking creature. I painted  faces all night from the time we got there to the time we cleaned up. I painted everything from Mike Tyson’s face tattoo to a chubby hamster. This event was so much fun and I can’t wait to do it again!! Thanks to everyone who came!

Curt Patrouille

curt_patrouille_posterLast Sunday your Wilgus Hall Staff went to go see Curt Patrouille, a UWP Alumus, and a Command Sargent Major in the National Guard share on how to overcome adversity in your daily life and keep a positive outlook. Curt told us about the many adversity’s he has had to overcome in this lifetime and how he managed to do so. Curt’s main points on overcoming adversity and developing resiliency were to hunt the good stuff, stop dwelling on the negatives, look at the positives, communicate as best as possible with everyone, and develop relationships. Essentially what Curt was saying to us all is that the first steps to overcoming adversity in life are to stop getting down on everything and start taking control of how things that happen make you feel.Curt also said to not let others dictate the meaning of success in your life, so if you feel you had an accomplishment on day and someone doesn’t, don’t let them get you down. You had that accomplishment whether they say so or not. Curt’t final words were, Do what’s right, dont sweat the small stuff, never stop learning, and that everyone has wolves. This discussion was mainly to help teach everyone that there are things that make life harder and stress us all, but there are ways to overcome these stresses and conquer them. So do your best, look on the bright side, and you’ll go far.

A book Curt suggested for people to read is ” Escape the box” by Edward Hobbard, which is about an airforce infantryman shot down over korea and held hostage.
