Cold Night in Cardboard City Leads to Understanding for Students



On Friday, November 14, 50 MOVE and WISE students joined 70 other college students to participate in Journey Home’s Cardboard City Sleep Out at the University of Hartford to brace the frigid cold temperatures and raise awareness for homelessness. 


This was the first event in the National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week.

Journey Home, a local non-profit focused on ending chronic homelessness in Hartford, organized the annual event. The students took part in a number of activities throughout the night. They watched a documentary about homelessness in Hartford, listened to stories from current and former homeless people, participated in the food stamps challenge, engaged in a candle light vigil honoring homeless people who have been victims of violence, and led a privilege walk.

“[The students] were very engaged. It’s obvious they were really listening because they asked very deep questions that got to the heart of what it means to be homeless. It was apparent they were trying to understand the plight these people have experienced,” said Journey Home Deputy Director, Amanda Girardin.

The students gained awareness and knowledge about homelessness not only in Hartford, but nationwide and what they can do as college students to help end homelessness.

Check out some videos of the event:

Daylight Saving Time ends and reverts to standard time on Sunday, November 2. Clocks are moved backward by one hour at 2:00 AM daylight savings time, and the time becomes 1:00 AM standard time. The National Fire Prevention Association and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommend that consumers change the battery in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when they change their clocks.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT STUDENT EMAILS



There seems to be some confusion as to what a student’s email address is in the new Microsoft 365 system. It is the same as before; this has not changed. Your email address will always be the first initial of the first name, followed by the entire last name, followed by @student.goodwin.edu. So, for Dan Rego, the student email would be drego@student.goodwin.eduKeep in mind that if there are multiple people with the same name, there may be a number before the @ sign, like drego1@student. The ONLY time you will need your SonisWeb ID, like DR5548662@student.goodwin.edu, is when you are signing onto the O365 site, but it is NOT your email address. If you need further assistance, please contact the Goodwin College Helpdesk at 860-727-6743 or stop into the IT office in room 136 of the main building.
