The celebration was in honor of the SMSU, to commemorate its 36th anniversary.
“One of the main goals for our SMSU birthday bash is to collect as much student feedback as possible,” said Alexsaundra Preston, marketing coordinator for the SMSU.
Preston was responsible for putting this year’s SMSU birthday bash together.
SMSU was incorporated in 1978.
Since then, the SMSU has been celebrating its anniversary every few years, collaborating with all the centers and student staff that make up the SMSU.
For SMSU’s 25th anniversary, the center gave away a VW. Beetle, so as you can tell it’s a big deal.
The scavenger hunt that was set up, was geared towards letting students learn about the SMSU and everything it has to offer, having the students stop at every program board to find clues leading to their prizes.
There was a DJ present playing music and a nacho bar and snack table were set up for students free of charge.
One of the main goals of this event was to promote the centers involved within the SMSU and their missions, in order to help them gain exposure.
The University Dance Company made an appearance and performed about half way through the event.
All of the SMSU coordinators were pitching in at the food tables or the side activities.
To top off the evening, one lucky student went home with a free iPad mini, courtesy of the SMSU.
The SMSU birthday bash was yet again another successful celebration that was collectively organized and produced by all the people involved within the whole building.
SMSU is looking forward to another great year of fun!
