The ride of entertainment that we have been waiting for is approaching! Even during a pandemic, the Student Government Association and the Campus Activities Board have been working diligently to provide the student body with events in the weeks to come.

Due to COVID-19, the campus’s new normal since March 2020 has been virtual; from classes being strictly online to organizations hosting their events over Webex or Zoom. However, thanks to CAB and SGA, the students can expect in-person events with stricter protocols to keep the campus safe in the next few weeks.

Dallyn Smith, SGA’s Executive Justice, stated that next week, March 15th-19th, the Student Government Association will be hosting a Public Safety Week. “SGA is excited about the fact that our Judicial Branch will be hosting the first lineup of in-person events this year. We have worked hard and diligently all year to be able to host in-person events. One of the upcoming events will be a self-defense training course taught by our SSU Police Officers. There will be more in-person events to happen in the upcoming weeks so be on the lookout,” Smith says.

Some of the events will be virtual and in-person, however, to attend some of the events you must provide a negative COVID test result. The test results must be from March 15th-18th, any other results before these dates will not be accepted.

In the light of in-person events returning, Breanna Brown, SGA’s Miss Junior, mentioned to look out for the opening of the food truck that students have been curious about since it arrived in the Student Union’s parking lot. “We are currently working on getting the food truck open and running very soon. Can’t exactly tell you what will be served, but just know it’s going to be great!” She also mentioned looking forward to campaign season at the end of March and staying tuned to the @ssustudentlife Instagram page for more updates.

Now you may wonder what Spring events do CAB has planned? Well, I was able to meet up with the current CAB President, Keri Ann Wiggan, to ask will they bring back some of the major events we are to using having in the Spring such as Spring Fling. “We do have a couple of events planned for March and April since the moratorium has been slightly lifted by the university’s President.

For March, the campus activities board will be having Homecoming.” Ms. Wiggan says. “Homecoming 2.0 this year is from March 25th-28th. I can’t go into full details on what will be happening that week, but we do plan on letting the campus know soon, so be ready!”

She also, mentioned that our normal Spring Fling will be different this year; instead of the week of events that we are used to, it will be some virtual and in-person events every Thursday in April.
