More than 40 seniors from the local community attended a Paint and Pour hosted by students at Loyola Marymount University. The event was hosted in the Westchester Senior Center during the spring semester.
“Everyone had fun at the Paint and Pour,” said Donovan Moini, a senior computer science major and vice president of the National Residence Hall Honorary. “Most importantly, the student volunteers and seniors were able to build relationships with one another.”
NRHH is a leadership based honorary club comprised of residential students who value service and recognition. Donovan and his student volunteers said they wanted to particularly work with the senior citizen community because they felt they could learn from the experiences that the senior citizens have gained during their lifetime.
“There is only so much we can learn from textbooks while in college, and such knowledge from seniors allows us to gain a more well-rounded educational experience,” Moini said.
This event was the second time that LMU students hosted a Paint and Pour. In previous years, students hosted a tea event.
