Christmas and Hanukkah


Tuesday 12/12 marks the start of Hanukkah. This board serves to show some of the similarities and differences that Hanukkah shares with Christmas.



Depression and You

This new bulletinboard not only talks about common signs of minor depressions, major depression, and Seasonal Affect Disorder, but it also ways in which you can help yourself and others if you think you or them may be suffering from depression. It also talks about how alcohol and other drugs can be tied to depression, some common stressors in college that could contribute to depressive states. 

Disclaimer: this board does not guarantee that you or someone you know has depression. If you think you might be suffering from any form of depression, go seek professional advice to know for sure. Counseling Services in Royce is free to all students.


Reverse Trick-or-Treating

To celebrate Halloween with our residents, we brought the Trick-or-Treating to them! We passed out candy to the residents of Melcher with slips that read:
“Don’t let the cold weather get you down.
Here’s some candy to brighten your mood!”
Residents were delighted to receive a neat night treat and have a good laugh out of it!


Zombie Self-Defense

On Oct. 30th, RAs Bryn and Mitchell hosted Zombie Protection (Self-Defense)! We started off the event talking about various things people can do to exercise personal safety; such as having emergency contacts, being aware of your surroundings, traveling in groups, and more. We then went on to practice escape from wrist grabs, chest grabs, and arm grabs. Thank you to everyone who came to learn about how to protect your body from potential harm, and thank you to Bryn and Mitchell for hosting!
