Student Activities Board prepares for February Events

The Student Activities Board has two big events planned for February, a Super Bowl watch party and a casino night.  

SAB holds different free events each month on and off campus to give students something to do. 

“Our main purpose and goal for SAB is campus wide programming to provide students with free entertainment any day of the week,” Amy White, the Director of Student Activities at Wayne State College, said. “Our slogan is free entertainment for students by students.”  

SAB has recently changed their program to focus on holding a few big events rather than many small events throughout the month, and planning these larger events takes more time.

“It depends on the size of the event,” said Liz Liston, the Wellness Programing Director of SAB. “It can take days to weeks to plan an event and, depending on how large the event is, setting up beforehand can take hours as well.” 

The first event SAB is holding in February is a Super Bowl watch party in the student center’s lower cafeteria. This event will be on Feb. 11 from 5-10 p.m. with snacks provided.  

“It’s on a Sunday and there’s not a lot of things that are open on campus on Sundays,” Emily Miller, the Executive Director of SAB, said. “There’s an opportunity to come get food. It’s not something you have to actively participate in, so I hope it’s a good hit.”  

The second event is a collaboration between SAB and Student Senate. They are hosting a casino night on Wednesday, Feb. 21 from 6-9 p.m. in the Frey Conference Suite. There will be chances to win different prizes, along with mocktails, food and music. 

“They hosted it last year and it went really well,” Miller said. “It is something different because most people that go to college can’t go to a casino.” 

While casino night is the activity, White said this event is also to motivate the students that are in attendance to vote for the Student Senate’s president and vice president for the 2024-25 school year. 

There is also an opportunity this semester to stop at the Student Activities Office in the student center to get four free movie tickets with a student ID. These tickets can be used at the Majestic Theatre in Wayne.
