On Wednesday, May 2, the Student Government Association (SGA) will be hosting SGA Day on the quad. This event is free for students and will be jam-packed with activities from not only SGA, but other campus organizations as well.
SGA Day is carnival themed and will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. In case of bad weather, the event will take place in Blatnik.
“My hope for SGA Day is to not only give students a fun filled day with freebies and activities, but to show the student body the different types of organizations there are and allow those organizations to get their name out there,” said SGA Vice President Chelsea Williams.
Some of the activities students will be able to partake in include playing in a blow-up obstacle course, competing in trivia games and tie-dying shirts. Free food will also be available.
“The common phrase from students is ‘there is nothing to do,’ and we kept this in mind when planning out the semester,” said Williams. “SGA Day will offer not only something for students to do, but will give them freebies, fun and a chance to see a different side of the organizations participating.”
Organizations who signed up to participate in the event will also have games and activities set up for students to enjoy.
“There will be all kinds of activities for students to participate in that are being hosted by most of our Greek Life organizations, NSSLHA, Equality Alliance and more,” Williams said in previewing the event.
“I have personally had the vision [for this event] for over the last year, since the academic year is coming to a close at the end of April and activities decrease as finals approaches,” said Williams. “We wanted to be able to give the students and organizations an event to have fun and benefit from before the year ended. The idea came from thinking of the organizational fair, and then we wanted to add a fun twist to give students something different to look forward to since this has not been done at WLU before.”
