Got a late night class on Mondays? Don’t let that make you miss out on dinner! Do a quick run-by Student Governments office at the Student Learning Center and take advantage of their SG Grab and Go event from 5–6 p.m. There will be plenty of snacks and you’ll get a chance to meet your student leaders and learn a little more about USFSP.
Ever heard the saying, “dumb as a rock?” Well we think that’s very insulting, to rocks! Their feelings are very hurt. Cheer them on by painting them in pretty colors at the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library’s Library Rock Painting Party from 11–2 p.m.
Not done partying yet? Hit up the Black Student Association’s Welcome Back Bash in the USC Ballroom from 7–10 p.m. The event is said to be “the largest dance party on campus.” according to BSA USFSP’s Facebook page, so you have very little, if nothing, to lose! Go get your groove on and meet new people.
By now, you probably know that USFSP isn’t huge on the Greek life. But we do have some to flaunt! USFSP’s Alpha Phi Omega, for example, is a charter of the national co-ed service fraternity dedicated to the community. Join them for their Information Session at 5 p.m. at the SLC 2101 to learn how you can help.
Are you one of those really crafty, artsy people who can make their own calendars from scratch? Well, bless you, because those things are harder to make than they look. Also, you might want to join COMPASS’ Calendar Party from 5–6:30 p.m. at Coquina 101. Tools will be provided, just make sure to bring your syllabi so that you can include all your assignments, projects and deadlines.
College is expensive, even if you’re not the one paying for it. Odds are, you still have to pay for something and in any case, a good job is always nice to have. Lucky for you, the Career Center is holding an On-Campus Hiring Event from 11–3 p.m. in the USC Ballroom. For a list of available positions and to sign up for an interview slot go to www.usfsp.joinhandshake.com
Giving back to your community is an important part of social life, even school life. And, if you know anything about St. Petersburg is that there are many displaced communities, including the homeless population. Give back with some help Alpha Phi Omega by helping with their PBJs and Homeless event from 5–6 p.m. at The Reef.
End the week off strong by hitting up your campus gym —it’s a pretty good one! Campus Rec will be offering two different classes to get your muscles moving and your heart rate up. The first is Metabolic Conditioning Bootcamp at 12:10 p.m.
First 30 to show up will definitely be ready for the weekend, after their workout we mean. The second, if you happen to miss the first, is Zumba at 6 p.m. Oh yeah, it’s not just for your mom. Get your dance moves going and be there early because this class fills up. Don’t let anyone say you don’t workout! One day a week counts.
