With winter semester coming to a close and spring just around the corner, it’s time to recover from finals by participating in ducky races, outdoor movies and games galore. These upcoming spring and summer terms will prove to be exciting for students.
Although campus is less populated and terms are only eight weeks long, spring and summer are still eventful — filled wtih school prep, devotionals and numerous campus activities.
BYUSA has a lighter schedule during spring and summer, focusing on preparing for fall semester.
“[During the spring and summer] we are dedicated to training new officers,” said Tamera Gray, a BYUSA coordinator. “We spend this time training the officers and planning for the academic year. We have one big activity per term planned.”
Besides training, BYUSA will also host interactive games for BYU students.
“They do it on college campuses and its very popular,” said Ron Jones, event coordinator for BYUSA.
The Student Activities Board (STAB) will also plan ways for students to interact and share their talents through open performances.
“Our activities are more talent based,” said Lee Gibbons, coordinator of STAB. “We have seen many talented students perform who wouldn’t have had the chance otherwise.”
