Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been so overwhelmed with midterms and various other commitments that I ultimately neglected this. However, here’s a nice post to update you all on recent happenings.
Unfortunately, our last few meetings haven’t had the best turnout. We figure this is probably due to midterm season being upon us, but we’d love if anyone would even stop in for a few minutes to say hi during meetings! In the past few weeks we’ve discussed Columbus Day and its origins, Feminism, Reproductive Rights, and even had a fun little Halloween Celebration. It has been nice to see familiar faces attend our weekly meetings, but as always, we encourage you to bring friends who either share our views, or provide diverse view points to add to our discussions!
A few interesting things have happened recently. Last week was the semi-annual Break The Silence event with Active Minds. A few of our members, including Sam, Arianna, and Alvaro, spoke at the event. There was a pretty big turnout so thank you to everyone who participated! Break the Silence is very important to several of us, especially those of us who have previously suffered from mental illness. It’s extremely important that we continue to increase education surrounding mental illness so that we can eliminate as much stigma as possible.
In other exciting news, Arianna was featured in a new BU Today series called Threads. I’ll be sharing that video as well as some more information about Arianna in an upcoming post.
Next week is going to be our fantastic Election discussion and celebration courtesy of Allie. Look forward to some fun election trivia and an interesting discussion provided to you from the point of view of a history and international relations major. Same bat time, same bat place, CAS 225 from 5-7 on Monday.
Tonight is our biweekly study sesh in Mugar 203 from 6-8pm. Feel free to stop by and say hi even if you don’t plan on sticking around(: As always, our upperclassmen will be around to assist with homework if you need it, and I’ll probably be complaining about my problem set as per the usual. I hope to see you there.
Regardless, I hope you all have a fantastic week and midterms aren’t killing you too bad.
P.S. We’ll be putting up a link on the page soon to the drive so you can put your next semester schedule in. We’ll begin planning meetings for next semester ASAP so make sure you put your schedule in whenever possible (:
