The Student Affairs Leadership Team (SALT) invited students who helped host events during the recent Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties strike to a night of fun to reward their hard work Tuesday in the Science and Technology Center.
The event was specifically hosted for students who organized and ran the on-campus events while the strike was ongoing. The purpose was to reward the students for both “their hard work and their commitment to keeping other students engaged during a tough time on campus,” said Dr. Susanne Fenske, vice president of student affairs, who along with Shawn Hoke and Chad Thomas organized the congratulatory event for the students.
Students who had led the strike events were invited to come join the SALT for a night of fun and games. There was a pleasant turnout for the event, with nearly 40 students attending the evening to play bingo and enjoy snacks.
Student Affairs gave student leaders T-shirts regardless of whether they attended the bingo night. The event began at around 8:30 p.m. and lasted for about 90 minutes, during which students had “a great time” according to Dr. Fenske.
The night proved to be a success at celebrating the students’ hard work and showing the administration’s appreciation at their willingness to step up during a tough time for the university.
