‘Sip and Paint’ teaches self-love and kindness for Valentine’s Day

Erik Kantar | The Ticker

USG began their event by putting on a quick and informative presentation about what exactly self-care and loving yourself are. 

They also gave some tips on how to care for yourself better, such as treating yourself like you would treat a friend. 

Immediately after the presentation, the attendees began to paint at their communal tables, using the brushes, canvasses and paints provided to them by USG. 

“I didn’t realize painting would be this fun,” freshman attendee Brittany Monry said.

The tables in the Bearcat Den, where the event took place, were almost full for the duration of the event. 

The organizers even had to look for more canvasses at one point.

“We ran out of canvasses,” Staten said. 

The event seemed to exceed the expectations of the organizers, by both the number of students who actually showed up and by how much the attendees enjoyed the activities.

This begs the question that anyone, especially future event organizers, should be wondering when hearing about a successful event: How did these students find out about this event and what made them actually decide to come.

“I saw it on USG’s Instagram page and I decided to go because my friends were here,” junior attendee Tomasz Horczak said.

It is no surprise that Instagram helped get students to come to this event, but word of mouth and the location played a valuable part as well.

“A lot of good energy around here…everyone’s talking and eating…having a good time, you know. Like I met some two new people today,” said freshman Daniela Guaman, the event’s organizer.

Monroy also saw that the event was happening on USG’s page, but her friend asking her about it pushed her over the edge to actually see what it was about.
