Habitat For Humanity

Hi there!

Hope everyone is having a good week & staying warm.  The weather sure has started to get cold up here!  Although, I don’t think I can really complain about a 10 minute walk to class in the cold after I learned about the event that took place on campus Monday night.

The Habitat for Humanity Club held an event on the Dionne Green Monday night where students slept in boxes overnight to raise awareness about the needs of the homeless. Although I did not personally take part in the event, I heard that it was a very humbling experience for those who did.

Learning about this event made me want to become more involved with Habitat for Humanity.  Through volunteer work, this club aims to build homes alongside families who otherwise would not be able to afford them.  I think that this is a great cause and I am excited to have the opportunity to more personally become involved through the University.

As for some upcoming events on campus, this weekend the Liva Arts Company will be presenting the musical “Godspell.”  The play will be performed November 7-9 @ 8pm and November 10 @ 2pm at the Elm Park United Methodist Church, located on Linden St. right across from McGurrin Hall.  Tickets can be purchased for just 5$ in DeNaples Center on November 4-8 from 11am-2pm.  I can say from personal experience that every event I’ve attended of the Liva Arts Company has been spectacular and I am sure this performance will be no different!

This Saturday, Novemeber 9, USPB will be hosting the annual Royal Ball from 8-11pm.  The theme of the ball this year is The Golden Twenties.  So get your outfits ready and join us for an event that will make you wish you had been born 100 years ago.  There is a good time to be had by all!

That’s all for now! Have a great week!
