To celebrate the end of the school year, SLCC will hold the fifth annual Bruin Bash for students and their families.
The event will be held from 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday, May 3 at the Taylorsville Redwood Student Center. Organizers say that it’ll be a fun opportunity to mingle with not only other students, but the faculty, staff and community as well.
“The Bruin Bash is a super fun event that creates unity with SLCC students and the local community,” said Katie Sanderson, Student Life and Leadership Taylorville Activities vice president. “This is a last hurrah for students to celebrate all their hard work during the school year.”
This is the fifth year that SLCC has hosted the celebration, and student leadership aims to make this upcoming Bruin Bash the best yet.
This year there will be live acts that include magician Derek Hughes, and band J. Wride, which will perform at the amphitheater near the Student Center.
Other activities include a live comedy act, mechanical bull, henna tattoo artists, climbing wall, stilt walkers and sumo wrestling.
Students with families are encouraged to bring their children as there will be child friendly activities including balloon artists, face painters, jugglers and a bounce house. There will also be free popcorn and cotton candy available for everyone.
Admission for the Bruin Bash is free for students and the community as the event is paid for in part with student fees. Dinner will be available for a cost and will include hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, chips and drinks.
“This year’s event will be an amazing, spectacular, end of the year celebration,” said Sanderson. “Students should not miss this year’s Bruin Bash because, if anything, they already paid for it with their student fees.”
