Spring break is almost over, it went by so quickly. Next week the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus will be filled again with students going about their business. I am excited for the start of classes next week not only because this means that I only have a few more weeks of classes left before the end of the semester but also because of the many events and activities that are lined up for next week. Read on below for details of some of the many exciting events planned on the USG campus and be sure to check out the USG weekly for more details here.
Monday, March 26th– Lunch and Lead: Higher Education Leadership
The event title says it all. Free lunch and the opportunity to learn about higher education leadership from the Chief Operating Officer at USG, Nico Washington. Be sure to rsvp using the link here.
Tuesday, March 27th– Meals and Conversation with Dr. Stewart Edelstein.
Yes, you read that right, another event that offers free food! And the opportunity to share your feedback with the Executive Director of USG. I have attended this event several times and can say it is really a rewarding experience. Be sure to rsvp using the link here.
Thursday, March 29th – Pizza Night and Happy Hour
Hopefully, you see the pattern here, another event with food! However, this one does not provide free food but gives you the opportunity to support a worthy cause. The USG Student Council will be hosting this event as part of their fundraising efforts to raise funds for the USG Involvement Scholarship Fund. This is a wonderful opportunity to relax, network and contribute. Be sure to mention “USG Student Council” when ordering.
These are just a few of the many events slated to welcome students back to the USG campus, be sure to check the USG weekly and social media of USG for more events. Although the spring break did go by quickly, I enjoyed the short break and I am eager for the start of classes again. What can I say, I am one of those persons that enjoys learning and one of those persons that actually miss classes during the semester breaks. If you were on spring break I hope you enjoyed it and are as excited as I am to take on the final half of this Spring 2018 semester.
