Home Away From Home Week - November 14-19

UW-Stout is your home away from home. We understand that this time of year can be stressful, so various campus departments have banded together to provide some relief and provide some comforts from home.

Do you miss your pet or just need some stress relief?

Monday Nov. 14, Noon-1:00pm: Therapy Dogs in the University library. 
      Come and play with Maia and Margie. They love to visit with students.

Wednesday Nov. 16, 4:00-5:00pm: Therapy Dogs in the ASPIRE office (310 Bowman Hall).
      Come and play with Lenny and Ray, two sweet greyhounds that are super chill.

Thursday Nov. 17, 2:00-3:00pm: Therapy Dogs in the Involvement Center (106 MSC).
      Come and play with Alden and Ellie. They will make your day.

Are you all about the food or miss having a meal with family?

Grab a group of friends to have a meal together at Commons or North Point Cafeterias. You can find out the menu and details at Dining Services' website.

The University Library and Archives want to know what food you miss the most.  Submissions will be reviewed and compiled into the Stout’s Recipes from Home—2016 cook book, which will go into our collection and be available online. 

Whether you are from Chetek, Wisconsin or Chengdu, China—Eldoret, Kenya or El Dorado, California—be a part of Stout history and share the food you love with your Blue Devil family.  Contact home and get the details, then submit your Recipe from Home to www.uwstout.edu/lib/recipes.cfm by November 22, 2016.

Friday Nov. 18, while the food lasts: Milk and Cookies in the University Library.

Would you like to meet new people in a fun setting?

Saturday Nov. 19, Noon-5:00pm: International Games Day in the University Library (1st floor).

Bring your favorite game to teach others, or various board and card games will be available. It's a great way to meet someone new. Snacks provided!

Thank you to the Involvement Center, ASPIRE office, International Education, Dining Services, Counseling Center, Housing, Advising and many others who helped develop this week.
