This fall semester, the office of Student Activities is planning a number of events for students to come out to and enjoy.
Amy Hecht, assistant director of student activities, said, “We have a lot of events planned for the fall semester.”
The office of student activities has started printing “Stuff To Do” calendars. These will be available each month in the office and will include events that students would be able to attend.
Annette Donato, sophomore PR officer of CAP Board, said, “CAP Board works very hard with planning our events to keep the students interested in the campus and to keep them here on the weekends.”
“The office has been working to plan more events on Friday and Saturday nights and I think you’ll see that when you look through the Sept. and Oct. calendars,” Hecht said.
“As a part of one of the biggest organizations on campus, I always have a part in the events, such as dances, comedians and spring fling,” Donato said.
Some weekend trips that have been planned are to go see Sweet Charity on Broadway, starring Christina Applegate, on Saturday, Oct. 22. Tickets go on sale in the office for students the last week in Sept.
“I like the events student activities put together because they get people out of their rooms and gives us stuff to do on the weekends,” Cristina D’Amelio, junior psychology major, said.
“We’ll also be sending buses to Campus Philly’s Kick-Off on Sept. 24 for College Day on the Parkway and we’ll have buses to take students to the Constitution Center,” Hecht said. On that day all of the galleries are free with a college ID and there will be music, entertainment and more. Once students get down there, there will be shuttles to get around. All of the local colleges and universities are also apart of Campus Philly and will be participating.
Hecht said that they will be also showing some first run movies such as “Bewitched” on Oct. 22 at 10 p.m., “Madagascar” on Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. and Sin City on Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. in the Widener Center Lecture Hall.
