Summer Send-Off fun is planned Friday afternoon
Summer Send-Off, an annual end-of-the-year afternoon of fun, will run from noon until 7 p.m. this Friday, May 11, at various locations on the St. Paul campus of the University of St. Thomas.
The activities are sponsored by the Residence Hall Association, STAR (St. Thomas Activities and Recreation), Office of Institutional Diversity, and the Undergraduate Student Government, which is the new name for what used to be called the All College Council.
Information about the free events can be found on posters around campus and flyers in student mail boxes. Here’s a quick look at what’s planned:
- Tommie Pride: Day of Caring and Sharing will run from noon to 2 p.m. in the third-floor lounge (Room 304) of Murray-Herrick Campus Center. Students, clubs, faculty and staff will come together to showcase their community-building accomplishments. There will be music and hors d’oeuvres.
- Scavenger Hunt will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Test your Tommie sense by searching the campus. Sign up for the hunt at a desk on Foley Plaza in the lower quadrangle. First prize is an I-Pod.
- Festival activities run from 3 to 7 p.m. The lower quad will feature an inflatable slide, a Velcro wall, and the game called Dance Dance Revolution, or more commonly called DDR. The upper quad will have a dunk tank, and Foley Plaza will have a hot tub.
- Dinner will be served outside on Foley Plaza starting at 5 p.m. On-campus students can use their meal-plan cards; commuter students are welcome to eat for free.
