SCC=Spring Comes Calling
Spring has sprung! Spring forward! Spring is in the air!
On this spring break week, I thought it would be appropriate to share some ways to celebrate spring at SCC. The weather this winter has been pretty brutal, so it will be easy to embrace spring in spite of the inevitable allergy issues.
SCC seems to really enjoy spring. Our campus comes alive with green grass and trees, colorful flowers, and a variety of wildlife. Not to mention, we sure know how to put on events!
One big event in the spring is the aptly titled Spring Fling which will be held on April 23rd and 24th on the plaza. Past Spring Flings have been enjoyed by students and staff and allow for the opportunity to socialize, eat, and learn about organizations on campus. Did I mention there’s usually lots of giveaways and goodies? (hello, cotton candy!)
Formerly known as Run, Live, Learn, the newly-named “That 80s Run” is a 10K, 5K, and 1 mile fun run held on the SCC campus on Saturday, April 26. This is a wonderful fundraiser for our campus wellness events. The 80s theme promises to be a lot of fun with participants being encouraged to dress in their 80s best!
Another big spring event is the Job Fair, held annually the first Friday in May. The 21st annual Job Fair will take place on May 2 from 9am-1pm in the College Center gym. The job fair is a great opportunity for employers to meet all of the wonderful job seekers in our area in one big place. Job seekers will find the Job Fair helpful for networking and learning about open positions in the community, getting their resume critiqued, and having the opportunity to speak one-on-one with recruiters and employers. The event is free for job seekers.
If you love music and barbeque then don’t miss the “Rhythm and Ribs” event happening the evening of June 5! This social event is also a fundraiser which supports scholarships for SCC students.
I’m sure I’ve missed an event or two, but hopefully this post will convince you that SCC is the place to be in spring. From wellness to fun, job searching to fundraising, we’ve got it all! So what are you waiting for? Spring into action…!!
