Rethink Stigma

Whats going on 3N?

This week we got a new bulletin board about mental health, with an interactive piece about some stigma associated with mental illness. There are also informational statistics about depression in particular, and how to get help if it is needed. The board addresses some topics that aren’t easily talked about, and hopefully will start any necessary conversations about the topic. If you all have any questions or would like to talk, please let me know!

3N Movie Night

How’s it going 3N?

This last weekend we had a 3N movie night! We had popcorn and soda, and projected the movie in the 3rd floor lounge. We watched Hidden figures during this session, and before the movie we discussed the cultural implications of three Black women holding jobs in a STEM field. Though the movie did touch on the cultural constructs of the time, between segregation and cultural biases, we felt that there were a lot more instances of racism, gender bias, and bigotry than what was presented. Important conversation and a great movie! Please feel free to make a suggestion for our next one!movieposter

Wings with the wings!

How’s it going 3N?

Last night we had a 3rd floor sponsored event, wings with the wings! I know many of you expressed interest but couldn’t make it, but don’t worry, we have another wings night in the works for next semester! It was a lot of fun and we had a great turn out! Let me know if you guys would be interested in a similar event for later in the semester!

See you around 3N!

Homecoming Parade!

What’s up 3N!

It’s been a while since my last post but that doesn’t mean 3N hasen’t been active! Many of you have been involved with Hugunin events recently, so kudos to all of you for representing! This was evident during homecoming, so thank you to those who participated! The parade was definitely the highlight of my homecoming week, and I know a few of you also helped with that! Thank you all again!

Wing dinner

Whats happening 3N? 

Last Thursday a few of our wing members went to bridgeway together for a wing dinner. We ended up talking about being on campus, how college is different than first perceptions, and how sometimes stress can get to us if you don’t manage your time well. A lot of the time we were making jokes in between serious topics, and it seemed as if everyone was having a good time! Glad we all got to hang out together!

Batman!

What’s up 3N!

You should have all noticed our new Batman door decs! I mean who doesn’t love Batman am I right? A few of you have already mentioned the significance of the single superhero on the door decs, versus a variety, and honestly if you’d all like to make your own superhero door decs be my guest! Im glad to see you all expressing interest in superheros, it was good to have the conversation with you all about your favorite superheros! It’s good to see more of our communities interests!! Anywho, our next set will be up later this month or early next month!

Stay classy 3N!
