The strangest thing happened at Cal Poly today…
The day started like any other in sunny Southern California: warm, welcoming, wonderful. The sky was its typical beautiful blue canvas strewn with wisps of cotton butts. Nothing appeared out of the ordinary or, dare I say, extraordinary. That is, of course, until IHC (our RHA) worked its magic and made it SNOW!
More than 200 residents came out to see what all the fuss was about. For a number of our students, it was the first time they had experienced snow. Some even tried to take it home!
The event was so joyous that a barbershop quartet began to harmonize in merriment! Eggnog and hot apple cider spilled with joy and gingerbread people found new homes inside satisfied bellies.
Kudos IHC for bringing the magic to your first ever Winter Wonderland!
On the 17th of November our RAs went to space battle at a conference called Southern RAP. The conference itself was host to near 500 student leaders from 16 institutions in the Southern region of WACUHO. Our Cal Poly UHS students leaders worked diligently and for the SECOND YEAR IN A ROW our students succeeded in taking VICTORY! Our students presented 19 programs at the conference and RAISED OVER $1,300 for The City of Maywood and “Think Together!”, two very deserving philanthropies.
By the end of the day, Cal Poly’s University Housing Student Leaders were awarded 3 Top-ten programs, Top Community Building program, Top Educational & Professional Success programs, Top Environmental/Sustainable program, Top Passive Program, Top Overall Program, Most Philanthropic and THE SPIRIT AWARD!
This just shows how AMAZING our student leaders are! Here is a link to our article in Polycentric:
