On Thursday, February 12th, IC Project Sunshine teamed up with Active Minds to host a community service event in IC Square to spread positivity around Valentine's Day. The groups organized an event to make uplifting cards for children in healthcare facilities. The cards were completely blank on the outside and said "Sending You Sunshine!". The only rule of the game was that people were not allowed to add additional words to the cards, just creative illustrations to make a child's day a little bit brighter. Many people came out to color and have a relaxing night inside while supporting a great cause. As a result of the event, nearly 100 children will have cards to brighten up their stay in a health facility.

When it comes to living spaces on college, there are a number of organizations that work to promote residence hall events and address student concerns. The Residence Hall Association is a student organization committed to making the campus's residence halls a fun, safe place to live.
 
Secretary Julie Erickson, who has been involved with RHA since her first semester of freshman year, said she works on the campus change committee within RHA to help solve residential hall issues and work on improving sustainability-related initiatives. 

Erickson said she was first impressed by the RHA's influence on campus. She said RHA's mission is to cater to both the residents and the on-campus community.
