Community Engagement Program of the Month
Kyle Piscitelli, Hemingway Hall
The community engagement award for April goes to Kyle Piscitelli for his program, Hemingway Home Improvement. Hitting on all of the baccalaureate goals, this program gave residents the opportunity to join Kyle in cleaning, weeding, planting, etc… the Hemingway patio. Residents were able to create a beautiful outdoor space for current and future residents to enjoy. They plan to add more furniture and an herb garden. This program also provided an alternative to participating in weekend activities for the last weekend of the month.
Hall Program of the Month
Renae Herman, Disney Hall
Renae Herman’s program, Disney Hall: Drop, Swap & Shop is our hall program for the month of April. Disney was transformed into a shop where people could donate items they could no longer use for other residents to find a purpose for them. Renae estimated about 45 people who participated in dropping off items and shopping for new treasures. This was a great way to promote sustainability and also build a sense of community.
Earth Month Program
Ally Sievers, Nixon Hall
Our winner of the earth month program for Apil is Ally Sievers, with her Lorax Earth Day program. This program was inspired by the Dr. Seuss classic, The Lorax. Residents were invited to come watch the movie in the lobby and create flower pots and birdhouses out of plastic bottles. There were also coloring pages printed on the back of the recycled paper from our very own resource room. People who came could also plant flower seeds and learn about how to care for it to help it grow.
