Student engagement to kick off semester with winter festival event
The Office of Student Engagement is excited to kick off the spring 2023 semester for students with an event called Winterfest, which will be happening on Friday, Jan. 20, from 6-9 p.m.
The Winterfest will have a variety of winter-themed events, including an outdoor skating rink right outside of Gerety Hall. The outdoor skating rink will be made of synthetic ice, and ice skates will be provided free of charge for those who want to skate.
Other things going on outdoors during the Winterfest will include a bonfire with make-your-own-s’mores kits and a giant inflatable penguin game outdoors, as well as food trucks and other food like chili, cookies and a hot chocolate bar. There will also be some inside activities in Gerety Hall, including a caricature artist, a photobooth with a giant snow globe and, glass etchings with the Salve Regina logo.
The Office of Student Engagement will also be providing Salve Regina winter gear, including long sleeve shirts and gloves.
“We’re really excited to kick off this semester with a new tradition,” said Dyanna Moreira, director of student engagement. “We want to keep the bonfire tradition for years to come and really celebrate coming back together in the winter months. The winter months can be a little dreary here, so we’re bringing a little sprinkle to the outside of Gerety Hall.”
While the event is primarily for students, staff and faculty are invited to stop by and intermingle if they wish.
