WHAT MEN HEAR…

What men hear can hurt us all. This board is for all the residents of Wilgus hall to realize that some of the slang we say or phrases we use can affect not only the men in our lives but also the women. There is also a progression of masculinity throughout the years on the top of the board to see the obvious difference from the 40s to today.

Gender Norms Party

Tonight Wilgus Hall hosted a gender norms party. Wilgus hall staff and some residents stimulated an actual party with mock drugging involved. Each resident got a drink and was sent off to enjoy games, music, and snacks. The residents learned how easy it was for someone to possibly slip something into your drink and how easy it is to loose track of your cup.

Also the documentary, Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution was played in the background towards the end of the event for residents to watch. The film is on Netflix and it is encouraged to finish watching the film. The link below is a little more information about the film and also has the film for you to watch on the site provided. It allows each resident to make their own opinions on the sexual revolution and gender norms that run our daily lives.

WASH YOUR HANDS

It’s starting to get colder, which means it’s Flu & Cold season! So if you haven’t already gotten your Flu shot, washing your hands is a great way to keep unwanted germs away from your body. I took the liberty of getting the floor nice smelling hand soap for everyone to use. I know sometimes the bathroom soap doesn’t always smell the greatest and dries out your hands. So I figured if I got you all something that smelled nicer and added a little moisture back into your hands, you’d want to wash your hands more! Once the soap runs out I’ll buy some more. If there’s a specific flavor/scent you like, let me know! Happy washing!

Support is everywhere

In stressful times sometimes a simple compliment or phrase is all we need to stay motivated and feel supported.For support I wrote a few things on the main mirror for everyone who comes out of the bathroom to see. If you have something positive and supporting to say, stop by my room and grab a mirror marker and write away. Everyone needs support this week, be kind to each other.♥
