With the semester just getting off the ground, students and professors alike are getting back into the routine of classes. Everyone is still trying to get into the mindset of homework, papers and tests. The only place on campus that has not skipped a beat during break- the Student Activities office.
Students have always been able to count on Student Activities to offer exciting trips and events for the semester, and this year is no different. The first big weekend sponsored by Student Activities is D.R.E.A.M. weekend that is taking place Feb. 7-9. Applications are currently available online and the deadline for when they are due is Jan. 29. The weekend is open to all students.
“First and foremost the weekend is for students who want to meet 70 plus other students,” Assistant Director of Student Activities Gabrielle Occhiogrosso said. “The second is learn about leadership opportunities as well as how to get involved on campus.”
Aside from D.R.E.A.M. weekend, students will also have the opportunity to see different broadway plays and sports games throughout the spring.
The hottest ticket in town is The Book of Mormon. While the prices for this popular musical may be well over $100, Student Activities was able to get 50 tickets and are selling them for $60. The tickets are sign up only on a first come first serve basis. With only 50 tickets available make sure you get to the office early the day of sign ups.
Students on campus live and breathe sports, especially professional sports. This semester tickets for the Nets, Knicks, and Ranger games will all be on sale at the Student Activities office. Check flyers posted around campus for sign up days.
Now the trips, broadway shows, and professional sports games are all great but what about Springfest? The only information the office has released is that instead of having just one day it will now be a two day event.
“At the moment I will say is that we are looking for a new name, and news will be coming out very soon,” Occhiogrosso said. “We promise we are not hiding anything.”
