Student Goverment prepping new events

Student government has begun planning events for MCCC’s winter semester.

According to Student Government president Jessica Ryder, there are plenty of upcoming events we can look forward to.

“So far, Student Government has been busy planning events for this semester,” she said.

This year’s Sweetheart ball, themed “A Midsummer’s Night Dream”, is currently being planned. The date isn’t set in stone, but the ball should be held in March, as was last year’s ball, the “Gala at Gatsby’s”, which was held at the Crystal Gardens in Southgate. The venue for this year’s Sweetheart ball is still being decided.

MCCC’s yearly Family Fun Night will be held April 15th. Family Fun Night is an inexpensive event sponsored by Student Government. In the past, the admission fee has been only $1. Last year’s event had games, magic shows, face paint and many other fun activities for the family to enjoy.

Noontime concerts and karaoke in the cafeteria should become more frequent over the next few months. The first karaoke event of the semester will be held Wednesday, January 27th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.

A dorm room raffle is in the works for the last week in March. Its purpose is to raise money for a scholarship. Additional details are soon to come.

A human trafficking awareness campaign is being planned for an undecided date.

In addition to Jessica Ryder as Student Government president, officers include: Cole McNew as vice president, Alyssa Turgeon as secretary, Miyuki Zerke as treasurer, Caitlyn Davies as Historian, and Molly Siedlecki as Liaison. Student Government meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month in the cellar of the administration building.
