United We Stand

Hey 6 West!

On Thursday September 13, there was a United We Stand speech. While being here we listened to a talk about mental health. Counseling services came in and educated us during suicide prevention week. They talked more about depression and anxiety within college students. We watched a few videos and they informed us about the services on campus.

Here’s a video we watched during the presentation. I encourage you all to watch it. It’s very interesting.

Part of their presentation was trying to eliminate the stigma around mental health. It is okay to be sad. We are human and we all feel that way. Some people are just affected more than others and we need to accept that as a society. If you are struggling, that’s okay, you can come talk to Austin or I but I’ll also leave the link below to the counseling services website so you can check that out!

RTCC 1st Meeting

9/12/18

Good afternoon Residents of 6 West,

This past Wednesday we had our first Rountree Commons Council (RTCC).  A bunch of residents came down with us for rootbeer floats and fun games.  Hopefully next time everyone can come down.  But most importantly we are looking for floor representative for 6th floor.  As a floor rep you will work closely with SA Jill to help put on events for the building.  The other position that is available is a RHA Rep.  As an RHA rep you will represent Rountree and attend weekly meeting with other people from other resident halls.  It is a great way to get involved and build your resume!

United We Stand

9/12/18

Good Afternoon Residents of 6 West,

This past Wednesday some residents, Maddie, and I went to the United We Stand.  We has a great speaker from Wisconsin talk.  He started off by playing this video that HBO did about him and it was pretty stunning.

After he showed this video he told us about his life and what he has gone through.  He told us how is was fired job after job, found out his wife was cheating on him, was an alcoholic, and tried to kill himself.  He went to an abandon house and lit it on fire to kill himself.  He said he doesn’t remember much, but he ended up calling 911.  He ended up being charged with arson and went to jail for it.

And he got out he was tired of feeling the way he was, so he started talking to people like in the video.  He message to all of us, was to stop being so mean to people and start being nice you people.  Because you never know what kind of impact you can have on someone.
