Spring Week features celebrity speaker Jennette McCurdy, concert with Ty Dolla $ign and Hot Chelle Rae
For the first time since 2019, Salve Regina’s student-run Campus Activities Board (CAB) is hosting Spring Week — a week of activities and events without the COVID-19 restrictions that have affected the past three years. With a Y2K theme, this week aims to ease stress as the semester comes to a close, as well as celebrate the year-long achievements of Salve Regina’s students.
“CAB really is at the center of planning and executing this week,” said Dyanna Moriera, the director of student engagement. “Every person in this team has put in so much time and effort, so it’s really exciting to bring back a full Spring Week this year.”
Spring Week will consist of a celebrity speaker, a concert and many other fun events.
Bestselling author Jennette McCurdy to speak at Spring Week
Jennette McCurdy was most famously known for her role as Sam Puckett in the Nickelodeon TV series “iCarly” that started in the 2000s. However, she has since expanded her portfolio as a singer, podcaster and director — and she is now a New York Times bestselling author.
Jennette McCurdy published her recent memoir “I’m Glad My Mom Died” in August 2022, and since then she has become a beacon for mental health awareness and an inspiration to those struggling with personal battles. In a book celebrating resiliency, McCurdy uses transparency and humor as she dives into her struggles as a former child actor.
Her memoir discusses her battles with eating disorders, addiction, a complicated relationship with her overbearing mother and how she retook control of her life.
This event will be held on Monday, April 17, at 7 p.m., in Bazarky Lecture Hall. This event is free to Salve Regina undergraduate students only. Space is limited, and students must register in advance here.
Ty Dolla $ign will headline spring concert with Hot Chelle Rae
This year’s spring concert on Friday, April 21, will host Ty Dolla $ign — a singer, rapper, songwriter and producer — as the headlining artist for the 2023 spring concert. His most recent album, “Featuring Ty Dolla $ign” features artists such as Post Malone, Anderson Paak, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Jhené Aiko and Kehlani. Songs from this album will be performed at the concert.
Hot Chelle Rae, an American pop rock band, is the epitome of music from the early 2000s. With top-charting songs like “Tonight Tonight” or “I Like It Like That,” Hot Chelle Rae encapsulates the throwback theme of Spring Week and will bring a good dose of nostalgia to the crowd.
Prior to the concert on April 21 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., there will be food trucks outside Rodgers Recreation Center until the doors open at 7 p.m. Artist merchandise and Spring Week swag will be sold during this time as well.
The opening act will begin at 8 p.m., with the band Hot Chelle Rae. Ty Dolla $ign is scheduled to perform at 9 p.m., and the concert will wrap up around 10 p.m. A local DJ called Spiffy will also be at the concert.
Tickets are currently on sale, and students can find them by visiting here for the concert. Tickets are priced at $15 for students and $25 for guests.
