Pearl River Community College students lifted each other up this week during Project Positivity Week.
“The reason I decided to have positivity week is because I love creating positive energy among the students,” Student Government Association President De’Miyah Hooker said. “I wanted to give them something positive to see and remember.”
Monday students could draw or paint a positive message on a clothespin and then pin it on a friend’s belongings. Tuesday they had a chance to strike a pose with a positive message poster. Wednesday’s participants pinned balloon messages to the wall with positive sentiments written on them. Thursday was Positivity Rocks day during which students could paint a rock and place it around campus for another person to find potentially making their day.
“It was really moving to see the student contribution to PRCC positivity week,” student Jolie Pervel said. “The SGA gave us creative ways to do so, painting positive words or images on rocks being my favorite.”
The Student Activities Office and SGA also have several other events in the coming weeks including a Wildcat Feud, Play Day, Black History Program and a Campfire. To stay up to date on campus activities students should refer to RiverGuide and the digital signage around campus.
