WBI Weekly Digest

VaxSnacksRelaxed

fr please get vaccinated so 3Ls can have one full year of in-person classes

This newsletter is to talk about what to expect from WBI this year -
including an in-person meeting later this month, tell you about the
second-round of mentorships, let you all know how to get a WBI transcript
notation!

I am so NERVOUS! I haven’t done in-person school in almost two years. What
if I’m weird(er) now? What if no one likes me? Please say hi to me in the
hallways and excuse any anxious rambling, it’s just nerves I swear I'm
super cool.

Anyway, if anyone else is also nervous about getting back to in person
classes, feel free to hit me up for some Small Talk 101 hang outs before
school starts! I’d love to go for walks/coffee/drinks/whatever with anyone
that’s interested!

Anxiously yours,

Sara Witty

Upcoming Event!

We, the members of WBI, are THRILLED to invite you all to our very first
meeting of the year! We will be meeting on August 26, 2021 at 6 pm in
Mondale Hall! We’d like to have a chance to meet with people who are
interested in being a part of WBI before school starts so we can set up the
groups and figure out board members before things get serious. If you are
interested in a board position or in eating free food - please come! RSVP
here! <https://forms.gle/Ec75kUHQWpxexfQk9>

Topics of conversation will include setting up groups, choosing board
members, and discussing WBI goals for the year. If there are people
interested in attending a WBI meeting that are unable to come in person, we
will host an online meeting soon after! If you are interested in an online
meeting, please mark that here <https://forms.gle/Ec75kUHQWpxexfQk9>.
Mentorships

The first round of mentorships is well underway and we’re all seriously
excited to have thirty mentorship pairings begin before school even starts!
BUT, we aren’t done yet. We are going to do a second round of pairing once
the school year starts. So, if you have any friends that are bummed because
they think they’ve missed out on this opportunity to connect - let them
know not to worry!

The second round of mentorship pairings will be done in the first month of
school and sign up sheets will be available both virtually and in person in
the subplaza during club week. Keep an eye out for links in future
newsletters and look for our table when school starts back!
Transcript Notation

There are two different transcript notations to be aware of; please talk to
your mentee about the possibility of earning a transcript notation!

Valued Contribution to Student Well-Being Program (Open to 1Ls)

This notation consists of three components: (1) participation in the WBI
Peer Mentor Program, (2) participation in 5 wellness programs a semester OR
membership on a planning team to organize these programs, (3) completing
monthly reflections.

Leadership and Advocacy in Student Well-Being (Open to 2Ls and 3Ls)

This notation also has three components. All students will be required to
complete monthly reflections. Additionally, students will need to
participate in two of the three following activities: (1) WBI Peer
Mentorship Program, (2) participate in 5 wellness programs a semester, (3)
join a WBI Planning Team.

Advice Column

My first coffee shop job offered to let me start a bulletin board advice
column, but I moved to DC before I had the chance to actually do it! I’ve
regretted missing that chance ever since, so I’m opening one up here!

Any questions, concerns, or topics that you’d like some advice on, feel
free to submit them here
<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1anKIk6flI3DTzW_m6yEKOXMoQmoZc57SVj7g4Ux6qqY/edit?usp=sharing>!
You’ll get real advice, and maybe some memes for your situation. It could
be fun!
