As the semester comes to a close, many students are desperate for a pause on reality. Finals are looming, graduation and the future are lurking, and the thought of studying is listless. Before academic life takes over one last time, take a break and check out SA Fest!
Kicking off the week is the Online Photo Expo which begins Monday, April 26. Photos will be posted on the Student Activities Facebook page where viewers can vote for their favorites. Voting will last all week before the winner is announced at noon on Friday, April 30.
With the weather and water getting warmer, now is a perfect time to sharpen up those fishing skills. Grab some friends and register for a workshop on fly tying! This learning experience will take place at Hydaway Outdoor Center at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 29.
On Friday night, end the last full week of classes by watching a movie on the lawn. Free popcorn, a blanket, and a movie with friends is a perfect way to wind down the semester. News of the World will be shown on the Commons Lawn at 8:30 p.m.
Chalk the Lot will take place from 12 – 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 1 in the Pavilion Lot. Chalk murals done by Liberty’s very own students will be drawn throughout the event and will be voted on by YOU to determine first and second place winners. Live music will be performed by McKenna Stamm, TJ Lawson, and Noah McLeroy. All this art might make you hungry, so there will be food trucks and vendors at the event.
The promise of food is always a strong incentive, but free food is even better. Graduating seniors who come to Chalk the Lot will receive free food and shirts. College education can be a hard four years, so come celebrate the accomplishment of making it through.
Closing out SA Fest is a concert with John Mark McMillan featuring John Mark Pantana. Grab some tickets for Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and head to the LaHaye Event Space to wrap up the week and have a good time before cracking open those textbooks.
SA Fest will be held April 26 – May 1 at various campus locations. SA Fest is our first annual arts and entertainment festival, highlighting a variety of events and workshops to help develop community and foster culture. If you’re looking to participate in one of our educational workshops, enjoy the latest in music or movies, or explore the arts in depth, SA Fest is for you.
