Upcoming Cultural Events

Rob Swanson for Elkhorn, Jeff Robshaw for Kenosha and Curtis Turner for Racine 2021 Veterans Month

Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin Hygiene Product Collection - Beard Shaving Contest

Gateway’s Veteran Services team will be collecting hygiene products at all three Gateway campuses from November 1-26 to donate to Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin. Each campus will also have a representative sporting an impressive beard—Rob Swanson for Elkhorn, Jeff Robshaw for Kenosha and Curtis Turner for Racine. The representative for the campus that receives the most donations will have his beard cut off for a Facebook livestream on November 30 between 2 - 3 p.m. Donations can be made at campus Learning Success Centers, so show your support—the fate of these beards is in your hands! 

No-shave November encourages individuals to go a month without grooming their hair to empathize for those who do not have hair to groom due to complications from cancer and cancer treatments. The Bearded Veteran is a phenomenon often attributed to the celebration of the personal freedoms that were regulated when serving in the armed forces. Either way, sacrificing your hair grooming habits for a month is a great way to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. Share the journey with your campus representative and donate your (unopened) personal grooming items to a great cause.
