On Friday December 2, the Associated Students of Skyline College hosted a social and training mixer for the student senates of Skyline College, Cañada College and CSM. The mixer aimed to help participants strengthen the relationship between sister schools, learn about team building, and gain cultural competency training. After starting off with an ice breaker introduction between senate members, the mixer was divided into three activities—one focusing on team work, another on strategy, and the final one focusing on diversity training. The mixer ended with a cross-the-line activity and discussion about privilege and how to be competent and representative as councils at each of our respective schools. The mixer most importantly succeeded in bringing together the Associated Students within the District —setting up a strong basis for moving forward as representatives and unified schools. The mixer ended with dinner, socializing, hopeful discussions of our now more relationship-based future, and hope for another mixer in the near future.
