Stress breaker planned for end of Semester

   End of semester is nearing, and students don’t need any extra stress. SC4’s student government is helping to eliminate that stress by hosting their “Stress breakers” winter semester event April 26-30.

   According to a press release by Shawn Starkey, Executive Director of Public Relations,
Marketing and Legislative Affairs, the first event is a Ping Pong tournament that will be held on April 26, in the College Center game room.

   The tournament is sponsored by SC4 club Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. Finals for the tournament will be on April 28. Information about the ping pong tournament can be obtained by emailing jcoulter26564@student.sc4.edu.

   On April 28, Lakewood School of Therapeutic Massage will be providing shoulder, neck, and head massages for students looking to take some early stress off. Massages will be provided from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the College Center private dining room.

   Also on Wednesday, SC4’s drama club will be sponsoring improv theatre games in the College Center Atrium all day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

   Along with massages and improv, Student Government will also be hosting prize drawings from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the College Center Café.

   In addition to prizes, SC4’s radio station WSGR-FM 91.3 will sponsor a “Guitar Hero” Battle of the Bands contest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in which prizes will be awarded for top finishing bands.

   After rocking out to “Guitar Hero,” students will surely be thirsty, so Bistro College Center Catering will be giving away free pop and popcorn from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

   Outside of the College Center, a “Capture the Flag” event is being sponsored by the newly formed Zombie Defense Council from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 28. The game will take place between the College Center and the Fine Arts Building.

   Workshops are also planned for the week. April 29 will feature a Leadership Skills Workshop with Michael DeRosa, a nationally recognized speaker. DeRosa will also be speaking Friday, April 30 in a “Mentor the Mentor” workshop, which is open to students, staff, and faculty.

   More information about the upcoming “Stress breaker” events can be obtained by contacting Shawn Starkey at sstarkey@sc4.edu.
