Jeremy Hartman, Correspondent

Student Government and the Off-Campus Council will be holding their annual Block Party from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, April 27 on the Greenway.

The annual event includes inflatables, rides and a variety of foods.

“We’re going to be having all new food this year, such as fried foods, walking tacos and pierogies,” said OCC President Catelyn Sofio, a senior education major. “Our focus this year is to have a bunch of new things that the student at Wilkes haven’t seen yet or in a while.”

A DJ will be on hand to keep the mood fun and lively, as well as door prizes for everyone who attends. Everyone has a chance to win a prize. Block Party is always a great way for students to relax and have fun with friends before finals start.

The OCC is made up of students who live either on campus or off campus apartments. The council also plans events such as Wing Wars and March Madness.

Rodney Hill, a junior business major at Wilkes, has been attending the Block Party since his first year at Wilkes.

“This will be my third Block Party, and it is always something to look forward to,” he said. “The gyros last year were amazing, and I’m looking forward to seeing what new food as well as activities they will add this year.”

All Wilkes undergraduate students are invited to the free event. Students only need to show their Wilkes IDs to get a raffle ticket as well as the food.
