Two years ago, they announced this day on a very busy Friday (St. Patrick's day) and it began with a statement in the dining hall during dinner the night before by our president. Well this year Dean Swager waited until 4:53 AM to send us the email. This day off from classes is very needed around this campus currently; the heavily academic atmosphere in addition to recent traumatic events has made for many stressed out and worn down students.
The events for the day include:
11am-1:30pm Lunch in Cheatham Dining Hall
Menu: Barbeque Ribs, Baked Beans, Coleslaw, Corn on the Cob, Macaroni and Cheese, Make-Your-Own Sundaes and Banana Splits.
Non Residents, Faculty and Staff may eat for the reduced rate of $3.50.
11am-3pm Inflatable Mechanical Surfboard and Box & Joust in the Bell Quad
Rain Location: Smith Banquet Hall
12:30-1:30pm Cheese Doodle Art Contest under the eaves of the Dining Hall
Group and individual entries are welcome. Prizes awarded in various artistic categories.
1:30-2:30pm Field Day on Front Campus
Rain Location: TBA
3pm The Matinee!
Smith Hall Theatre
Did you like the 2007 Faculty & Staff Show? You’ll love The Matinee featuring live acts and videos from The Show. Join the Crazy Greek Play Lady, Amy Cohen, for all the fun!
I love attending a school so rich with tradition! Even though I never have classes on Fridays (or Mondays, for that matter!) I will certainly come out and enjoy the fun. This day will kick off a very busy and exciting weekend here on campus!
