After Party returns: The event will include music, food and rides
After a long semester of studying and attending classes, it’s time to let loose and celebrate with the ultimate After Party event. This year, Student Activities is bringing a night full of music, food and fun to the LaHaye parking lot.
On April 29, starting at 5 p.m., the event will feature several up-and-coming artists, such as Carlisle, E41 and artist Jordan Richard. The concerts will then feature headliner Vacation Manor as the band makes its return to Liberty University.
“The end of the year and graduation is a very emotional time. You are saying goodbye to your friends and your college life,” Director of Student Activities Cort Comfort said. “(After Party) is a place for students to come together, have fun, take photos, make some memories and end the year with a bang.”
Aside from the featured artists, attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy some delicious food from various vendors, who will provide a variety of options for all types of tastes. The event will also feature photo opportunities, where attendees can capture the memories and take pictures with friends and loved ones. The event will also have several rides and a Ferris wheel.
After Party coincides with Serve Lynchburg and is organized to celebrate the efforts of the people from LU Serve. Both events take place on the same day, and the organizers have made sure to allocate time to celebrate volunteers who have dedicated their time to serve the community. After Party serves as a platform to recognize and appreciate the hard work of the volunteers during Serve Lynchburg, giving them an opportunity to relax, unwind and celebrate their contribution to the community.
“After Party is designed to really thank the people who helped with Serve Lynchburg,” Comfort said. “We want to allow people who have served all day to come and enjoy some free food and have a good time.”
Graduating students are also looking forward to the After Party as it represents one final get-together
“Not only do all of my friends go, and I get to see them, but I get to experience a different side of Liberty,” Liberty student Kiana Collins said. “As an off-campus student, I will get to see and meet a lot of new people that I otherwise wouldn’t meet. I am just excited to hang out and experience my friends who are about to graduate.”
The event is open to all Liberty University students, staff and faculty. For more information about After Party and other Liberty events, follow @libertysa or visit the Student Activities website.
