STROKES OF BEAUTY BEHIND OUR CULTURES We say we want to travel, but we have a tour of the world when we walk to class every day. Often we notice cultural differences from what we see, but we don’t take the time to appreciate the ones that are hidden. We just walk pass them. They are just silhouettes. A blur in our peripheral vision. Many people know about the annual Parade of Nations, but this year, the Center for Diversity and Social Justice (CDSJ) and other departments are expanding it into a weeklong series of events that celebrates our incredible diversity and culture on campus. “With so many different cultures, I see us as a canvas; we are a masterpiece,” CDSJ student programmer Justin Francisco said. The new International Festival encourages the CWU community to accept our differences and acknowledge each other as the many different colors on the spectrum. We can use every color on our palettes to coat the canvas of Central.

“Normally, a program is geared to identify a specific culture, but with this event, we can showcase the whole world,” Francisco said.

JAN. 22

The International Festival will show appreciation towards immigrants around the world, acknowledge our very own Wildcats who are not from the United States, and reveal that we have a blend of enriching cultures right here on campus.

JAN. 23

“What do we have to offer as Americans?” CDSJ student programmer La’Shawnda Mason asked, pointing out that most students at Central consider themselves Americans. “It’s hard for Americans, but we are all immigrants to this land,” she said. Everyone has a culture, and everyone has the right to showcase their culture to each other. Many countries are represented throughout the week, and the CDSJ invites YOU to advocate for your country and culture! Sign up to participate during the first week of winter quarter in SURC 253.

International Appreciation Day 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. SURC Pit

CATS AT THE CAPITOL: CHANGE STARTS HERE Sometimes the problems that surround us as students can be overwhelming and burdensome on both our wallets and physical well-being. School expenses can be just one contributing factor. There is a way to change, if not mitigate a portion of these institutional problems. On Friday, Jan. 26, Central Washington University (CWU) students will head to Olympia, in an event known as Cats at the Capitol. Organized by the Associated Students of Central Washington University (ASCWU) Student Government, this event gives Wildcats the opportunity and resources to lobby and advocate for a day in the state’s capitol. GET OFF CAMPUS AND FIGHT FOR A CAUSE From civil issues to funding State Need Grants (SNG), Cats at the Capitol gives Wildcats the ability to connect with legislators and senators that can instill real change both statewide and on campus. This will be Michael Scott’s second year attending lobby day, and his first time directing the

operations as the ASCWU VP for Legislative Affairs. “There’s nothing like being there in person. Lobby Day is a chance for... [a] day of shaking hands, looking these people in the eye and talking about what Central needs and how we can be the best school we can be,” Scott said. Last year the Wildcats took on Olympia in early February. The decoupling of S&A funds, a request for $49.9 million for a new health sciences building and extra funding for programs were just some of the proposals that Wildcats presented. THIS YEAR’S AGENDA This year ASCWU hopes to build on what they advocated for last year. With one-third of students at CWU receiving SNGs, the group will continue pushing for fully funding those grants. They will also propose a halt in tuition increases.

textbooks and are far more accessible and affordable for students without sacrificing the educational substance. ASCWU will also advocate for additional support for survivors of sexual assault and veterans’ mental health. They will seek funding for one full-time counselor for the Veterans Affairs Office and develop new guidelines for investigating sexual assault in a more timely and sensitive manner. “It’s going to be a real cool experience. On the surface, you’ll have a day off from class, free food, the chance to visit a new city and get out of the Ellensburg winter,” Scott said. “But looking past the cool and free stuff, you’re going to be able to make a real difference. People throw that term around a lot, but I wholly believe in Lobby Day.”

Open Educational Resources (OER) would reduce the cost of attendance for students and ASCWU would like the state to invest more in these. OERs serve as alternatives to

STEP ON STAGE, IT’S SHOWTIME! The lights, the buzz of the crowd, the sweat beginning to form on the back of your neck. You begin to slowly make your way onto McConnell’s grand stage. Seeing the vast amount of people staring back at you, you almost walk right back off; but no, you tell your doubt, you got this. You’re going to rock this stage. With one last deep breath, you are ready. You open your mouth, and proceed to rap Dr. Seuss’s “Green Eggs and Ham.” The crowd goes wild, appreciating your tug on nostalgia. You pray that they continue to love it, remembering you must wow the crowd in these vital first 30 seconds. Finally, the Kiki walks across the stage and they continue to cheer; you have avoided the Sandman’s dreaded broom! Now that you have ensured success, or at least the crowd’s undivided attention, you finish your “Green Eggs and Ham” and end your performance with a spin-off of “One Fish, Two Fish”, leaving the crowd speechless. You walk off-stage to the sound of your adoring fans chanting your name. Does this sound like you? Do you love that almostpukey-but-really-it’s-just-adrenaline feeling before you perform on stage? If so, Showtime at Central is offering you your time to shine. Showtime at Central has been put on by the CWU Black Student Union (BSU) for over a decade now, and is modeled after the famous Showtime at the Apollo in Harlem. The BSU officers are looking forward to another great show. Even the people who get booed off the stage have a great time! So what are you waiting for? Dust off your skates or pull out that violin, and start preparing for this year’s Showtime at Central. SHOWTIME 101

Showtime at the Apollo: The original television debut of this talent show started in 1987. The Apollo Theatre is known as the place where stars are born and legends are made, including stars like Lauryn Hill, N.W.A and Michael Jackson, who all performed on Amateur Night before finding fame. The Apollo Theatre continues to feature talent from all over the country. Sandman: Howard Sims, acclaimed tap dancer and the original “Sandman” for Showtime, would gently remove performers from the stage if the crowd was not impressed. This year, our student Sandman may do any variety of things, so if you watch the show expect the unexpected! The Kiki: This position is named after Kiki Sheppard, the long-time co-hostess of Showtime. Our Kiki will be responsible for strolling across the stage with the 30-second card. 30-Second Rule: Performers have 30 seconds at the beginning of their performance to win over the crowd. When the Kiki enters on-stage, it is the crowd’s responsibility to either cheer with delight or boo in displeasure to confirm their decision.

SHOWTIME AT CENTRAL Friday, February 23 7 - 11 p.m. McConnell Auditorium BSU@cwu.edu 9


THE POWER OF RESILIENCE Think about the people you pass by while walking home, to work, or your classes every day. You may not know it, but the person that just passed by on your left is the same one that had to flee their home country and start fresh on unfamiliar ground. Or the one on your right is struggling with depression while trying to raise younger siblings at home. We all face trials, big and small, throughout our lives. The question is, how do we recover? What is the innate response to adversity, and how can we not only recognize our reactions, but change them for the better? The answer is resilience. There are many different definitions of resilience, according to Carolyn Thurston, CWU Director of Academic Success Initiatives. “A common concensus is that resilience is the capacity to rebuild and grow from adversity,” she said. “Furthermore, it’s not something you have

to be born with; resilience can be learned.” FOSTERING RESILIENCE ON CAMPUS The Center for Leadership and Community Engagement (CLCE) is incorporating resilience as the theme of the 10th Annual Leadership Conference, on March 1, 2018. Keynote speaker Andres Lara (“The Cuban Guy”) will share his experiences and the importance of remaining motivated during difficult times. Lara is well aware of the power of resilience. At the age of 16 he fled Cuba to the United States with no money, no English, and no home. The UW Resilience Lab will also be paying a visit to share how they foster resilience on their campuses. Additionally, other faculty members and experts on resilience will be hosting workshops.

year’s conference. Dr. Ralf Greenwald, a CWU professor who teaches courses on neuroscience and cognitive psychology, will talk about the power of neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is essentially our brain’s way of recovering from trauma and developing over time to optimize our strengths. KNOWLEDGE IS EMPOWERING Register for the Leadership Conference by visiting the CLCE or online through their website. Registration is only $10, and you can pick and choose which workshops work best for your schedule. The deadline to register is Feb. 23, and the knowledge learned from these workshops is ultimately priceless. As a student, learning how to foster resilience is a skill that will last a lifetime, so take advantage of this conference by soaking up as much knowledge as you can.

Not only will the idea of resilience be a focus, but the science behind it will also be an important aspect of this

LESS S.A.D. AND MORE O.P.R. Winters can be tough in Ellensburg. Between the long treks through knee-deep snow and barely seeing the sun between classes, some days can seem dreary. Instead of tackling those mountains of yawn-inducing homework, take a moment to appreciate the mountains of Washington and join Outdoor Pursuits and Rentals’ (OPR) winter trips. Throughout January, February and March, OPR is hosting excursions to take advantage of the colder weather and the beautiful Central Washington region. Student trip leaders Andrew McDonald, Nick Poprawksi and Kendra Turner are psyched to take you out and show you the ropes. Who knows, you might even make a friend or two! “I went on a trip last year and met one of my now-best friends on it,” McDonald said. “I went knowing nobody, so I was pretty scared about that, but then I ended up coming out with a lifelong friendship.”

NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED All experience levels are welcome; OPR’s team will show you the basics so that you can focus on meeting other people and having a great time. “That’s what we’re here to do. But ultimately, it’s to get people outside,” Poprawski said. “No matter where you come from or what your experience level is, we’ll accommodate to you.” Turner agreed with Poprawksi. Since not everyone is active in outdoor recreation, it can seem difficult to pick up an activity that seems completely foreign. “It’s definitely hard the first time, but [after] you’ve done it once, it’s so much easier. You also realize the effect it has on your overall health and mental health,” Turner said. Getting outside can also ease mental health issues like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which affects roughly 20 percent of people in the United States, according to the American Academy of

Family Physicians. Roughly four percent of people also suffer from seasonal depression, a more intense version of SAD. One way to combat these mental disorders is to stay active, stay social and get plenty of Vitamin D from the sun. “If I just sit there at home doing nothing then I’ll feel really bummed, but if I get out there and do something that I’m proud of and that I want to tell people about, then I feel pretty great,” McDonald said. “So I really encourage people, for their mental health, to come out and do these activities.” CALL OF THE ADVENTURE Tuesdays starting Jan. 9: OPR will bus up to Snoqualmie summit to shred some fresh powder. Wax and tune-up on your snowboard is available from OPR for only $25. Jan. 20: Head to Roslyn for Ice Skating at Suncadia. Jan. 27 & 28: Enjoy an epic cross-country skiing weekend in the North Cascades; we’ll stay in a comfy, cozy hostel.

CONNECT WITH OPR AND GET OUTSIDE!
