SAC Stole Christmas!

During the first week back from a break it is always the hardest to get back into the swing of things, that's not secret. But for the first weekend back, the Student Activities Council tried to spread a little holiday cheer throughout campus. In this post, I'm going to break down what SAC has been doing the past three weeks...

Grace and Mat Franco

Friday, December 2nd 
Magician Mat Franco (see left) stunned and awed everyone in Taylor Little Theatre! I know, I know... you're probably thinking, "Seriously a magician, you're in COLLEGE aren't you?" Well Mat showed us his unique magic and comedy act. In fact, the whole SAC board, including Grace were amazed and cracking up the whole time. He was great with the crowd and really got everyone involved with his whole show. And something to ease your mind... SAC hand selects each magician/comedian/singer/performer to ensure optimum enjoyment of the students. So fear not, SAC has got your back!

The polar bears were so stinkin' cute!
SAC stole Christmas. Yup! We stole it and brought it right to our Student Union. We had about 200 students show up to participate in a variety of holiday activities. The activities included: watching ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas Count Down, eating Christmas cookies, drinking hot chocolate, making personalized stockings, building gingerbread houses, decorating ornaments, and the best thing at the event... stuffing your very own build-a-bear! Students lined up more than an hour before the event to ensure that they got the bear they wanted. It was a fantastic event that really kicked off the holiday season right.

Friday, December 9th
The Student Activities Council paired up with the Laker Spirit Club (LSC) to deck the halls at the Men's Club Hockey game. At the Ice Rink we supplied students with free t-shirts with LSC's winter schedule of athletic events, Santa hats, jingle bells, and all the sugar cookies and hot chocolate a little Laker could eat! After the hockey game, we opened the ice for an open skate. We rented out skates, turned on some tunes, and let students skate the night away until midnight. So many students showed up in the typical "ugly Christmas sweater" and others went all out and dressed up like elves and reindeer! I had a great time and was so excited to see that everyone else was having such a blast.

Okay, another issue that SAC truly understands is that all students are "poor college students." So SAC always tries to give out freebies like shirts, gift cards, sunglasses, frisbees, cups, or whatever else we can manage to get for students. We also love to show movies before they're released on DVD or at least the week they come out. Last Saturday we showed the hilarious sequel, The Hangover Part II. I suggest that any student totally take advantage of SAC Movie Nights and turn it into a date night! Not only is it free, it's a pre-released film so even the Red Box down the street doesn't have it yet. It's also ecofriendly, no need to waste the gas to drive to the movie theatre when SAC is showing it right on campus. It's a win, win, win in my eyes.

Well, that's all I have to report on for now. Keep your eyes open for my post after break and I can tell you all about The Roommate Game Show we're bringing to campus as well as Cup Cake Wars!
