Cougar Place (CP) residents experienced an afternoon filled with fun, creativity and camaraderie at the Resident Appreciation event held on Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 1 - 3 p.m. The event, organized by CP staff, aimed to show gratitude to the vibrant community of residents.

The Cougar Place Lobby buzzed with excitement as 133 residents joined in the festivities. A variety of engaging activities awaited them, turning the lobby into a hub of creativity and enjoyment. From popcorn and cotton candy stations to chocolate-covered strawberry delights, the event offered a delightful culinary experience.

For those seeking hands-on experience, a trail mix-making station and 3D fabric painting corner provided opportunities for artistic expression. The coffee bar, a popular spot throughout the event, offered residents a cozy space to relax and connect with neighbors.

One of the highlights of the day was the friendship band-making activity, allowing residents to craft tokens of friendship and shared experiences.

To add an element of anticipation, every participant received a raffle ticket upon joining the event. As the event unfolded, four winners were awarded prizes that included a milk frother, wireless headsets, a disposable camera and a Brita filter.

As the fall semester winds down, we look forward to similar Resident Appreciation events in the coming months for Bayou Oaks, Moody Towers, The Quad and University Lofts. Stay tuned for announcements with specifics for those activities!
