A fun break in your busy schedule is what Student Development tries to provide with the events planned for the spring semester.

As fall semester is over, Student Development Tuesdays is not. Every Tuesday at 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. last semester SD held some type of interactive event in the Henry Student Center lounge to give students a chance to have fun in the middle of their stress-out college day. These small activity sessions are not stopping this semester.

“We are continuing the tradition of SD Tuesday,”  said Kayla Cauthon, Student Development activities assistant coordinator. “We just want activities on campus at all time; there is literally an activity every Tuesday. They are very passive programs; just something fun for students to do for two hours. I’m looking forward to these SD Tuesdays this semester.”

Some of the SD Tuesday themes are Fro-Yo Day, Pi Day and This or That Day.

Along with SD Tuesdays are around seven trips students could sign up for with your Wilkes ID required at the information desk located in the center of the first floor in the SUB. Upcoming trips include 25 open seats for students to see Jersey Boys, 40 open seats to see the Harlem Globetrotters, 40 open seats for a WBS Penguins Game and two different trips to go skiing; both are open for the first 20 students who sign up. More trips are planned for later in the semester. All trips through Student Development are minimal to no cost to the students; the highest cost being $10.

Other fun events being planned include Chill Week which would be a week of winter events, each day something new would be held pertaining to the season. Some ideas being tossed around are the possible of having an artificial ice rank in the greenway, hot cocoa and coffee bar and a ski trip would be in this week.

“Another interesting activity we are looking to have towards the end of the semester is a Walking Taco Day for Cinco De Mayo,”  Cauthon said. “It would be a bag of chips with your choice of preferred taco toppings.”
