Tickets were sold for $5 in advance and $7 at the door. All proceeds went to the fraternity’s philanthropy, Habitat for Humanity. The event started at 10 p.m. and ended around 11 p.m.

The event consisted of two teams, blue and gold, that were a combination of members from different Greek organizations. The blue team consisted of fraternity members and the gold team was made of members from Monmouth’s sororities.

The two teams competed in a game similar to jeopardy with the gold team winning the competition. The event was hosted by Alpha Kappa Psi brothers Brenna Sermarini, Simon Cruz, and Norelle Bondar. Kate Nelson, a representative of Habitat for Humanity, came to the event to speak about the organization.

Michele Kaplan, Assistant Director of Student Activities for Fraternity and Sorority Life, thought the brothers did a good job spreading awareness for Habitat for Humanity with the event. “It was very effective for the brothers of Alpha Kappa Psi to invite Kate Nelson to speak on behalf of Habitat for Humanity. It gave those who attended greater insight as to what the money raised was benefiting and helped to raise awareness,” she said.

Members of the fraternity set up a table along the walkway across from the Student Center from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. and invited those passing by to donate money to their philanthropy organization Active Minds in exchange for water balloons to throw at shirtless Tau Delta Phi brothers who were at the side of the table waiting to be hit. The event “Pelt a Tau Delt” gave participants the choice of donating one dollar in exchange for one water balloon or three dollars in exchange for five balloons.

“The brothers’ positive energy and inviting idea made me want to come to the table,” said junior Megan McClintock, who participated in the event. “They placed themselves in a highly-trafficked area and did a great job of making conversation with people who were walking by.”

According to its official website, Active Minds is the leading nonprofit organization that empowers students to speak openly about mental health in order to educate others and encourage help-seeking. Through campus-wide events and national programs, Active Minds aims to remove the stigma that surrounds mental health issues and create a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues on campuses nationwide.

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) brought fall festivities to Monmouth with their annual Fall Fest event on the residential quad on Wednesday, Oct. 25.

The event took place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and was a way for students to enjoy their favorite fall activities with the convenience of an on-campus location.

Students were able to use bonfires to make their own s’mores, help themselves to hot apple cider and hot chocolate, have caricatures drawn, and pick their own pumpkins to paint from a pumpkin patch made on the residential quad itself.

Nicholas Manento, advisor for RHA, considers Fall Fest one of his favorite RHA traditions. “It’s a simple event that appeals to everyone and being able to provide a program that brings so much of the student population together is one of the many things RHA is here for. This year we were able to showcase student musicians Dan Amato and the Sentimental Gentlemen and work with SAB to help highlight the Haunted Tour in Wilson,” he said.

The Student Activities Board (SAB) worked alongside MU Players to put together their annual event. Students had the opportunity to get in the Halloween spirit for free from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with the theme of this year’s tour being ‘Abandoned Farm House.’

Brianna Licciardello, junior at Monmouth and Vice President of Major and Special Events for the SAB, was in charge of the event.

“Although I put a lot of time and effort into this event, I really couldn’t have done it without all the people who showed up on Saturday to help. It was awesome to see people from SAB come together with students from the MU Players to put together something fun and entertaining for the campus,” Licciardello said.

Tianna Fougeray, senior marketing student and Novelties Chair for the Student Activities Board, was one of the students who helped bring the tour together. “Haunted Tour is an event that I have been attending since freshman year. Now that I am a senior, I was so sad that it was my last tour as part of SAB. I look forward to it each year and it is one of my favorite events we put on,” she said.

This club is one that does not ostracize anyone, but also a club that perpetuates equality and deconstructs bigotry and oppression across all facets of the LGBTQ+ community.

Members get the opportunity to meet like-minded students and faculty that push pluralistic thought while creating diversity and acceptance across campus. Through various interests and passions, inequalities overlap into every discipline and everyone has something to offer to the table to strengthen a progressive atmosphere.

There are three parts of the club to increase visibility for the LGBTQ+ community including academic, social and activist layers. “It’s important that we have representation and visibility because that encourages community,” said Chris Rapaglia, Vice President of SPECTRUM and junior social work student. “Seeing someone who is like yourself, who is successful or history-making, can empower and nurture young queer students,” he continued.

Academically, the club offers opportunities including internships, conferences, panels, and volunteer work geared toward LGBTQ+ individuals. These are vehicles that promote inclusivity while preparing students to lead productive and professional lives after college.

The purpose of the event was for the club to promote and raise awareness about the declining bee population. The club set up on the patio and stayed outdoors from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m.

The event consisted of a table with an array of goodies for students to take in order to get their attention and create a greater understanding of how much bees influence and effect everyday lives.

Members of the Student Activities Board handed out free water bottles with labels saying, “Thanks for buzzing by” and jars of honey with bee facts written on attached labels. Students were also able to help themselves to beehive and bee shaped cookies,  as well as black and yellow bee-themed cupcakes. The club made sure to get students actively involved by writing things that makes them happy on paper bees to hang on a “Reasons to Bee Happy” sign and promote further awareness.

Senior marketing major Tianna Fougeray and Novelties chair for the Student Activities Board helped work the event. “Bee the Change was all about promoting bee awareness. As students would walk by our table set up on the patio, we would ask them to write down ways to ‘bee’ happy. From there, they could pick out their own jar of honey with an attached bee fact and help themselves to cookies and cupcakes as well. Members of SAB hung up each response on a poster. It was great to see all of the responses hung up together. This event was amazing because it showed how our lives without bees would be totally different and there is a lot for us to ‘bee’ happy about,” the senior said.
