Boxes and Walls experience at UW-Whitewater


WHITEWATER (WKOW) -- UW-Whitewater students are getting a glimpse of what life might be like for someone else.

It's through a diversity experience called, "Boxes and Walls".

The interactive tour takes participants through six rooms reflecting different experiences.

This year's rooms are African-American, Latino/Latina, ability, sexual orientation, gender and socioeconomic status.

"It's to show students that life is not always what they've experienced. It's to educate students and the community of Whitewater what can be happening, and what's happening." said Amanda Krier-Jenkins, Asst. Director of Community Development in Residence Life.

Boxes and walls was created by residence life at the university back in 1998.

It has since been used on more than 300 campuses across the country.
