Thank you to everyone who participated in Civility Week!!! It was yet another success this year and we hope that everyone will remember to "Think Twice. Be Nice." Have a safe and enjoyable spring break!
It's that time of year again... Civility Week! On March 9th through the 13th the Office of Civility Education and your very own Civility Mentors will be spreading the message "Think Twice. Be Nice" during our annual Civility Week. Monday is Random Acts of Kindness Day. Tuesday is Mental Health Day. Wednesday is Anti-Bullying Day. Thursday is Body Image day. Friday is Health Relationships Day. So spread the word and keep a lookout for the many events around campus! #CivilityWeek #ThinkTwiceBeNice #URI
As a Civility Mentor we work to try to make the campus and local community a better place. This year our big project is called Blue Jeans Go Green. This is a program that we have been chosen to participate in as a University. We were hand selected from all the schools in America. We are now competing with 3 other schools to try to collect the most denim this month. The denim collected is recycled and made into insulation for homes. The insulation is then used by Habitat for H...umanity when they build homes. Each piece of denim we collect adds to our goal of 500 pieces of denim. I figured that reaching out to my athletic family here would be a great way that we could connect ties with the rest of the URI community in helping to insulate a family's home in the local community. I was hoping that everyone would be able to share this with their families, friends, and my fellow students, so that we could help URI compete and reach its goal!
We currently have the denim drive boxes set up all over campus. All old denim (jeans, shorts, shirts, skirts, ect) will be collected by November 1st. If you have any questions or would like me to come to talk to any of the other teams I would be happy to do so. Please feel free to contact me.
20% off a massage sounds pretty good to us - This is a reminder that you can bring your denim to Body Kneads in Providence for a discount on your massage! And if you're on campus, look out for the Civility Mentors running a table THIS Thursday outside the Memorial Union!!
