PAWS had a great end of the year celebration dinner at Napolese! It was sooo good. It’s right by campus, too, off of 49th and Pennsylvania–in fact, it’s connected to Cafe Patachou! We got prime seating in Patachou, actually, which is great because with such a big group, it can be hard to hear sometimes.
Napolese buys ingredients from local spots, including the Butler Campus farm! It’s so cool! We were curious what parts of the pizzas we got were from the farm, but I guess the mystery is part of the fun. The food was EXCELLENT and so. was. dessert.
NUTELLA PIZZA. Sorry there’s a creepy blue filter over the picture. I got a new camera app on my phone and I have no idea what I’m doing.
PAWS had such a great year, and I had so much fun being a leader in that group! I learned a lot and now peer education and overall wellness will always have special places in my heart.
Reasons 1-999,999: Sarah Barnes Diaz!
Sarah nabbed this year’s Woman of Distinction award, given in honor of Women’s History Month!
Sarah is such an outstanding member of the Butler community. Not only is she the adviser for PAWS, but she also gives talks at Greek houses, heads the Victim Advocate Program, and is always available in her office with open ears!
Did I mention she teaches a peer education class too?!
Sarah’s not the only one winning awards, either. We attended the BACCHUS Area 7 Conference and took home the award for this year’s best peer education group!
We had so much fun at the conference! We learned a lot about other school’s peer education programs, got to meet peer educators from Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky, AND we got to visit Baldwin-Wallace College.
Don’t forget that this semester’s Stress Less Week is coming up in TWO WEEKS. I’ll post the schedule when it’s all settled!!
