Hidden Figures

It was amazing to have the opportunity to hear from author Margot Lee Shetterly, and watch a screening of the film “Hidden Figures: The Untold Story of the Black Women Who Helped Win the Space Race” right on campus!  Lots of buildings organized groups to attend this event together.

Wreaths

Have you ever made your own holiday wreath?  Resident coordinators provided materials and taught residents to make their own festive decorations.

Gingerbread Houses

Whitehall residents got creative on Friday and made their own gingerbread houses in the community room.

What do YOU see?

Residents of 68 Mansfield walked over to the Yale Center for British Art to take part in a cool program called Enhancing Observation Skills.  This guided session (led by one of their own neighbors!) uses the process of viewing art to enhance observation and communication skills.

Climbing

Did you know that the Mansfield and Esplanade Apartments are just a few block from City Climb Gym?  On Sunday afternoon residents were treated to an all inclusive climbing session for all ability levels.

Food Drive

Thanks to all of our residents who donated so generously to the Children’s Program’s annual food drive.  The kids had a blast going door to door and our community was able to make a significant contribution to the Connecticut Food Bank.  Thanks!

Saying “Thanks”

Residents of 276 Prospect took a break from their work on Saturday to share some treats and show their appreciation for Hope, who does such a great job looking after them and their building.

Seasonal Decorations

Neighbors at 68 Mansfield lent a hand to decorate their building for Halloween!

Lake Compounce

Were you brave enough to attend Helen Haldey Hall’s trip to the Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce?

Say Cheese!

Esplanade Residents were invited to a fall photo-shoot to capture an image of autumn in New Haven.

I wish I lived at Mansfield…

Resident Coordinators in all of our graduate housing buildings host weekly open hours to connect with their residents, but Alex at the Mansfield Apartments brings things to a whole new level!
