Programming Board brings entertainment to Thursday nights

Abbey Haldeman, Staff Writer

This spring semester, Thursdays are about to get a little livelier. That’s because Programming Board, lead by advisers Jamie Miller and Melissa Howells, are finding ways to help students find something fun to do for their Thursday afternoons and evenings.

Programming Board is planning events for every Thursday of this semester. From bingo to laser tag, Karaoke and Zumba classes, students will find something to do that interests them.

“We just want students to have something to do with their Thursdays,” said junior elementary education major and Programming Board President Jessica Short.

Last week, the first of the Thursday events, Pizza Wars, took place in the ballroom of the Student Union Building.

“Groups of students from Programming Board went and tried some of the pizzas and after, they ask the restaurant if they are willing to sell them for around $5 a piece,” Short said.

The restaurants that participated made 60 pizzas for this year’s Pizza Wars. For those that like to dance, but don’t feel like dressing up, Programming Board has scheduled a sweatpants dance.

“There will be a DJ and everyone is welcome to come in their sweats or yoga pants,”

Short said. As you can tell, there are a variety of different events scheduled for this semester alone. If you are interested in getting involved and helping the programming board set up events, you can attend their weekly meetings on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. in the Miller Room.
