As the warm weather starts to roll around and the academic year begins to come to a close, the amount of upcoming events on campus are numerous.
One event that is important to the Simmons College community is Global Service Day. Every year since 2000, Simmons College has celebrated with a college-wide Scholarship and Service Day Initiative. The Scott/ Ross Center hosts a variety of events that reflect Simmons' commitment as a College to service and the Boston community. Events have included workshops, service projects with community-partners on-and-off campus, letter writing campaigns, and pledge signings for the YWCA'S Stand Against Racism campaign.
This week, Simmons College Campus Life announced the re-launch of its Facebook page -and they're doing it big, with the "Where's Stormy?" Photo Contest. Campus Life is challenging students to take creative pictures with a sketch drawing of Stormy the Shark, and post them on the Campus Life Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/simmonscollegecampuslife.
The next step is for students to get their friends to like their picture, because the photos with the most likes by April 1st will win prizes! There will be a $100 Bertucci's gift card given for Group Photo with the most "likes," a $50 Amazon.com gift card given for Individual Photo with the most "likes," and a $25 Starbucks gift card given for Individual Photo with the second-most "likes" overall. Plus, those who post photos that garner more than 10 "likes" will win a special Stormy the Shark prize from OSLA.
The Simmons College Campus Life Facebook page is a great way for students to share information with each other, keep up to date with events around campus, and celebrate Simmons-ness! The Stormy the Shark sketch photo that will be used in the competition is available for download on the Simmons College Campus Life Facebook page, and print outs are also available in OSLA and from RAs.
