At midnight on Tuesday, a group of Northwestern students gathered at the Rock to chalk up some positivity following an emotional week on campus. After the election results on Nov. 8, Weinberg junior Michael Pattis recognized the need for students to see some positive messages, especially ones of inclusion and love. He created the event, which he called “Chalk the Rock,” and urged students to cover south campus with colorful notes, quotes and drawings. Those who came worked fervently under the cover of darkness to make sure the Northwestern community had something to smile about the next day.
