BBC’s summer will include smiley faces and bowling pins

Campus Life at Biscayne Bay Campus is hosting a series of events that will take students to a bowling alley after they relax with some “Happy Days” and enjoy a welcome bash.

If students missed Welcome Bash, which was the first event and it took place on June 22, there are two more events that will take place at BBC, organized by the Student Programming Council. One will take place on June 24 from noon to 2 p.m. at Panther Square called “Happy Days,” and the other the following week.

The idea was developed in order to “promote happiness,” according to Yselande Pierre, SPC adviser and Campus Life assistant director.

“We want the students to experience happiness and enjoy summer,” Pierre said. “It is an outreach to students for an easy transition into the summer semester.”

The event will have smiley face-themed decorations, music and refreshments. SPC staff said it is a good time for students to step out for their lunch hour and take a break between classes to relax.

“Bowling Night” will be a much more interactive and engaging event, that SPC will host it.

It will take place on July 1 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Holiday Bowling Center, 101 E. Pembroke Rd. in Hallandale Beach.

Since it is an off-campus event, SPC will provide buses to transport students on a first-come first-serve basis. Buses will depart from BBC at 6:15 p.m. at BBC.

The first event, Welcome Bash, took place in the Wolfe University Center’s Panther square from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 22 welcomed new and returning students for the summer semester at BBC. Developed by the Student Organizations Council, there were giveaways, free massages, free lunch, and caricatures out on display.

In addition to that there was a host of organizations and clubs tabling to get students to come out, sign up, and participate.

“It is an event each term that welcomes new students for Summer B and a welcome back for current students so that they can get involved,” said Kaytien Franco, marketing assistant for BBC Campus life.

Promotion Health Services, Caribbean Student Association, Panther Power, Center for Leadership and Service and Florida Alternative Breaks are some of the organizations that had a table at Welcome Bash in hopes of getting students involved.

“I think it’s a great event to lure students into a campus organization. It’s a great way to get people engaged, informed and to be apart of something and to not feel alone,” said Kathleen Devaney, the president of FIU’s chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and a senior in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and President of SPJ.
