Go to the Student Government Association Facebook page, BCC SGA, look for flyers around campus or look at the campus announcements on Pipeline for student life activities.
The SGA members come up with the ideas and put it all together. If you have ideas, students can talk to an SGA member or Andrea Miller, Student Life director, in the Student Union.
“If you’re not in any other activities [SGA is] a good structure for transitioning into college,” freshman Brooke Toedman says.
This year, SGA started off the school year with Grizzfest, Aug. 22-31. They had snacks set up on the first two days of classes. They also had basketball and volleyball tournaments on Tuesday. Wednesday was free bowling at the Grizzly Bowl, where all of the lanes were packed with students catching up with old friends and making new ones. On Thursday SGA held an ice cream social on the basketball court outside the dorms. Students were playing games of pickup basketball as well as enjoying the cold treats. They had Activities Unlimited from Monday, Aug. 29 to Wednesday, Aug. 31 for students to see all the activites and clubs Butler has to offer.
“It was fun. I thought it was cool that they put together a week of things to do the first week back,” freshman Austin McNorton says after attending the Grizzly Bowl and the ice cream social.
