Any student, new or old to campus, has an opportunity to learn about RSOs and how to get involved on campus for the spring semester.
Resembling the fall semester’s Festival ISU, Winterfest is a bit smaller of an event aimed at providing students with new opportunities.
Running from 3-6 p.m. on Monday, the event will be in the Brown Ballroom of the Bone Student Center.
“Although students and groups connect in many ways throughout the year, this event was created to offer students another organized opportunity to get involved and offer RSOs a chance to have organized outreach efforts,” April Milkovic, graduate assistant in the Student Involvement Center for the Dean of Students Office, said.
This event has been foreseen for a couple of months now in hopes to spark something new this year for students in attendance, she said.
“This year we’re hoping Winterfest is a little different as there seem to be more groups registered than previous years,” Milkovic explained. “We currently have 75 groups signed up, ranging from social fraternities and sororities, to academic groups, to sports clubs and special interest groups. There’s a little bit of everything, and it’s exciting to see so many students ready to showcase their organizations.”
Winterfest is free and open to the public. Light snacks, activities and giveaways will be available for those who stop by, Milkovic explained.
“University Program Board and Student Government Association will have a photo booth and the first 250 students to attend will get a Winterfest T-shirt and the opportunity to have it decorated by airbrush artists,” she added. “Students also have the opportunity to take away information and possibly giveaways from the different RSOs in attendance.”
