The 2018 Great Toilet Paper Challenge at UW-Green Bay ended with a small office of two — Disability Services — making big contributions and wiping out the competition.
In early January, the Student Affairs and Campus Climate and Enrollment Services divisions met to better acquaint employees from both divisions and update all on what is new in each department. As part of those updates, Stacie Christian reported the Campus Cupboard was most in need of toilet paper. Thus began The Great 2018 TP Challenge.
The teams (Admissions, Financial Aid/Bursar, Registrar/GBOSS, Disability Services, Counseling and Health, and Academic Advising/Career Services) rose to the challenge and spent two weeks bringing in donations and taunting the competition. The motivation — serving UW-Green Bay students. The prize — a King Cake on Mardi Gras, recognition in the Log.
“Team Disability Services, insisted they were the little office with a big impact,” reported Academic Advisor Stephanie Murphy. “Counseling and Health drew attention to their efforts with an at-home port-a-potty outside its door, and Advising and Career Service’s pile grew steadily.”
On Feb.13 (2018), participants gathered to share food and celebrate. The Little Office that Could beat out Team Academic Advising/Career Services by a mere 12 rolls with a total of 451 rolls. Their reaction? “We knew we could wipe out the competition.”
A total of 1,486 rolls of toilet paper were collected for the Campus Cupboard, which is always in need of personal health items like toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant and soap. Please consider a “fun” drive of your own to help out students in need.
