Delta Week 2013

DWeek2013

 

Continuing Political Awareness & Involvement: Black History Scavenger Hunt

Throughout the week, we sent out hints as to where questions were placed. We wanted to provide Truman students with the opportunity to engage in an interactive event geared towards enhancing their knowledge on historical events and works of prominent political women of Delta that have impacted not only the African American race, but the country as a whole.

 

Continuing Economic Development: Vitality- The Real World

In this event,  we hoped to educate students on the importance of financial management through a game in which they must weigh wants vs. needs in creating a budget. We wanted to increase awareness about budgeting while in college and in life after college.

 

Continuing Educational Development: Stigmas, Stereotypes, and Labels

We invited students out to a discussion concerning the stigmas, stereotypes, and labels that people are confronted with and/or creating on a daily basis. Our intent was to send them home with a better understanding of others and a willingness to avoid stereotyping in their everyday lives.

 

Continuing Physical & Mental Health: Not Your Typical Valentine’s Day

On Valentine’s Day, we wanted to provide the students of Truman’s campus with a unique Valentine’s Day experience in which we provide a healthy alternative to spending Valentine’s Day alone.

 

Continuing International Awareness: An International Family Reunion 

At our annual event, we wanted to provide the opportunity for the Truman community to enjoy traditional foods from various multicultural organizations on campus in hopes that they gain a better understanding about each organization through various displays of cultural significance including dance, song, games, etc.
