Protect Purdue Ambassador Project Highlights
This semester has been like no other. In these unprecedented times the Protect Purdue Ambassadors have dedicated their time to facilitating connections and providing fun outlets for students across campus. Check out some highlights from our past projects.
FSCL Sheet Sign Contest
Fraternity, Sorority and Cooperative Life got creative this October as they promoted the Protect Purdue Pledge on their sheet signs. These sheets are typically used to promote events, these sheets however showed the spirit students have when it comes to keeping Purdue safe.
The sheet design which incorporated the Protect Purdue Pledge in the most creative way would win the FSCL organization $500 to their philanthropy. Kappa Delta got creative with an “Among Us” themed sheet and was awarded the $500. The donation will go towards their philanthropy program which includes “Girl Scouts” and “Prevent Child Abuse America.”
The creative spin on promoting safety for our campus was hard to miss as these signs covered Fraternity, Sorority, and Cooperative houses. The Protect Purdue Ambassadors were blown away by the creativity all the students presented!
Bell Tower Paint Night
On Tuesday October 13th, Purdue’s Bell Tower turned 25! Protect Purdue hosted an event to celebrate. Students gathered with masks and social distancing guidelines on Memorial Mall to paint their own Bell Tower. Seth Workman, a Protect Purdue Ambassador, demonstrated step by step how to recreate the Purdue icon on canvas.
As paint hit the canvas, conversations bustled through the group of students and ambassadors alike. This event was a great opportunity to meet new people and enjoy the beautiful weather while it lasted.
There is no doubt, this semester has been stressful. Despite the challenges this semester has presented, students have remained determined to take advantage of safe activities to create connections and alleviate stress. Students left with their own panting and a positive memory that will live on forever. The Bell Tower Paint Party was a great success!
Students and staff have continued to adapt to the “new normal” the Fall Semester is always full of activities giving the Purdue community a chance to meet new people and celebrate fall festivities. This semester was only slightly different. Students continued to eagerly join events which included mandatory masks and social distancing.
Students gathered on Slayter Hill to paint pumpkins, socialize and enjoy fall festivities.
Mask Design Winner
Walking through campus, you’re guaranteed to see different mask designs and types. In September students submitted their Purdue related mask designs in hopes of having their mask chosen and distributed across campus. While many entered, only one could win!
