Student Life and Leadership has scheduled welcome back activities for the Jordan, South City and Taylorsville Redwood campuses to celebrate the new semester. Activities are scheduled for the first week of the semester, although during spring semester students will see a smaller amount of welcome back activities compared to fall semester.
“Spring semester we do about the same amount of stuff just on a smaller scale, because during the winter students tend not to linger on campus as long,” said Student Life and Leadership coordinator Brandi Mair. “The weather has an effect on these activities.”
Student Life and Leadership sponsors the events so students will see that there are other activities on campus besides going to classes.
“The Welcome Back events get students to be involved on campus,” said Demi Brog, Taylorsville Redwood Activities Vice President. “This offers the students a more well-rounded college experience.”
At 10:00 a.m. on January 11 at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus, there will be a hot breakfast served and there will be student calendars handed out in the Student Event Center.
On Friday January 13, Student Life and Leadership will be sponsoring the basketball games. This is called the Bruin Pride Game. The women’s team plays at 5:30 p.m. and the men play at 7:30 p.m. The games will be held in the Lifetime Activities Center on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. Another Bruin Pride game day will be held on January 27 with the games being held at the same times.
On January 18, there will be date night at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. In addition to dinner being served, the movie “Crazy Stupid Love” will be shown. Tickets will be on sale at all three campuses and the price will be $2.00 per couple.
On the Jordan Campus there will be a Welcome Back activity January 18 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. There will be food and help with students’ questions and giving directions to students as where to find their classes. On January 19, there will be a Winter Beach Party beginning at 7:00 p.m. There will be food, a band and beach themed games.
On January 30, Fine Arts and Lectures is having the “Date Doctor” at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. He is like a real life “Hitch.” The event will take place from 12:00 until 2:00 p.m.
Student Life and Leadership will sponsor activities each month throughout the semester. There will be a comedian appearing in the month of February and there will be children’s activities on the second Saturday in March and the first Saturday in April. On March 15 there will also be a Murder Mystery Dinner.
Student Life and Leadership’s biggest event for the semester is called Bruin Bash. This will take place in the evening on April 27, from 5:30 p.m. until midnight. This event has a wide range of events throughout the Student Center that includes food, games and other attractions.
Student Life and Leadership is also accepting applications for open positions. These must be in by January 12. Interviews will be held on January 18 from 2:00 until 6:00 p.m. There are at least four chair positions open and multiple board positions open.
