Peer-to-Peer Cultural Quilt
Pictures of students, faculty, and staff and their families decorate our campus in the first-ever Westridge family quilt. This project originated in the Advanced Peer-to-Peer class and was quickly embraced by Student Voices and ASB. It became a joint effort and was launched for Thanksgiving. Big and Little Sister groups, along with the Peer-to-Peer group, collected pictures of families celebrating holiday traditions and stitched the panels together like a quilt.
This community project came on the heels of an assembly on "Storytelling in Multiracial Families" where researcher in intercultural communication, Mariko Thomas, talked to students about identity.
