Clean up of Katie’s Garden

Sunday morning was the clean up of Katie’s garden which is a community garden here in Platteville.  Not only was it a great volunteer opportunity but it was also a great way to help the environment.  Katie’s garden was designed to help both bees and butterfly(s) which both faced a sever decline in the last few years.

Nothing gives your brain a break better than drawing some lines between a few dots :P.  As we get closer to finals week the amount of stress we get from classes sky rockets.  Don’t forget to take some time for yourself. Relax, draw, hangout with friends.

This weeks Friday Night Club was hosted by our hall and it was Taste the World.  Each floor (six in total) made a dish from all continents with the exception of Antarctica. There was lots of food and information on the different continents. Keep an eye out for the other upcoming FNCs and events.

Earth Day – Waste Audit

Last Friday was Earth Day and there was an Earth Day carnival on campus.  One of the activities was a waste audit.  Garbage bags were taken from the Pioneer Student Center and were sorted to see what was recyclable and compostable.  The activity was quiet eye opening for all those involved.

Engineering Expo

Last Thursday was packed with fun.  I know a few of you went to the Engineering Expo but I hope a bunch of you ended up going.  The Engineering Expo is a massive event held on campus that is open to the public to encourage kids to pursue engineering.  Several attractions and events are hosted by individuals, teachers, and clubs.  Companies in the community also come to show off some of their modern tech. The county swat team was there to show off their armored vehicle and diesel powered motorcycle. Also, for those who missed it, there was a helicopter on the west lawn.  The Engineering Expo is always a blast and a great insight to all the things engineers can do.
