Throughout the week:
Happiness Banner
A large banner will be present at a multitude of the events. This banner will say “I’m happy because…” and will collect the reasons for residents’ happiness throughout the week. After the week is over it will be displayed outside the library.
Happy Music Video
Based off of Pharrell Williams’s 24 Hours of Happy project, ResLife will both advertise and display the event with a happy music video. All organizations on campus will be asked to participate by sending in video clips of them dancing to the music. The clips will be culminated into one film that will be posted on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets.
I Smiled Today!
This will take place all week long. When SAs see a resident smile they will ask why they’re smiling and reward them with a sticker.
