    ULN '17

    Autumn gave to ULN '17

    I volunteered with Communities in Schools of Central Texas at the Wooten Elementary School Fall Festival and Math and Literacy Night. I helped set up and run the table during the event. We had a social-emotional learning game at the festival where we had children manipulate cardboard faces and explain the emotions they were feeling. I enjoyed this event so much and I loved seeing all the kids and families having a good time and spending time together at the school

    I volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank. I was in charge of box breakdown and so I got to use a box cutter to breakdown the boxes as the team emptied the boxes of donations. I also was in charge of taking the broken down boxes to the warehouse, where we loaded them into the compressor to be squished down. I have volunteered here once before and did the same job which I really enjoy. I had fun working with non-UT students from the community and will definitely go back!

    I participated in Longhorn Lights Out for the first time and had a lot of fun! I saw a lot of familiar faces from ULN and worked with a team of lead mentors. We went through the Sanchez building turning of all the lights we could and logging anything we turned off. Then we met back up for pizza and trivia which I thought was very cool. Overall, it was a very good experience and I would participate in it again!

    I volunteered at the food bank here in Austin for the first time and I had so much fun! We were divided into groups and given jobs and my job was to breakdown all cardboard boxes and take all the cardboard to the compressor and compress it. I learned how to use a fork lift and a compressor and have a really good time!

    I helped facilitate the ULN food drive and delivered canned goods from the university to the Hope Food Pantry. We unloaded the items from the car, weighed them and sorted them. I'm so proud of how everything turned out. We donated a total of 755lbs of food to the food pantrythat will help individuals and families in the community eat.

    Love Your Leftovers: Monday Shifts Signup

    I helped promote composting in the Union by educating students, faculty, and staff in the Texas Union about what to put in the compost bin versus the recycling and landfill bins. I talked to people one on one, I held posters, and assisted people with their trash at various bin locations within the Union.

    I really enjoyed participating in this event in an effort to teach student, faculty, and staff about composting. I learned a lot about what is actually compost versus what goes into the landfill. It was a learning process on both mine and their part.

    I assisted the ULN staff on April 16th by greeting ULN members and campus partners as they arrived at the end of the year event. I directed them to the check-in table, to the refreshment tables, and the seating area inside of the ballroom.

    I really enjoyed helping out with this event. I was able to inform students at the union about proper disposal of their waste materials. I got to inform people about compost, recycling, and landfills.
