On Friday, May 4th at 5pm, Southern Nazarene University (SNU) will participate in one last SGA event: Finals Fling. At this event, students can enjoy good food including sno cones, free tank tops for the first 150 people and looking through yearbooks together. Finals Fling is a time for students to be in community with one another before finals, graduation, and then summer.
As students are looking forward to summer, they must first get through finals. Finals Fling is the perfect getaway from studying and stressing about the final week of the year. According to Becca Cox, Publicity Exec. for SGA:
“SGA puts on this event so that students can have something fun planned right before the stress of finals week. We know that the stress of the end of the year as well as finals is a lot, so we like to provide this space for students to come and relax a little with friends while also enjoying free food before the stress of finals week hits.”
While finals week can be incredibly stressful, Finals Fling also provides a place for students to get together before they separate for summer. Often, many students go home to states that put them far away from their friends they’ve made at SNU.
This event attempts to provide a free way to have fun and hang out with people before the summer hits, Cox saying, “Since most students split ways for the summer to travel, work, going home… it is also a great opportunity for everyone to come together as one community one last time before we all part ways.”
Students in the past have enjoyed this event for the food, socializing, and the fun atmosphere. Daniel Buckwalter, junior at SNU, said that his favorite thing about Finals Fling last year was “spending time with friends before I went back home to South Carolina.”
Jordan Carfield, sophomore at SNU, expressed that Finals Fling is a wonderful time to not only get together with friends, but to do so at an SNU sponsored event. “For SNU to pull something off specifically for the students to hang out and have a good time before we leave is really important.”
As the year comes to an end, Finals Fling is a great way to de-stress from studying for finals and get together with friends before they scatter for the summer. Not only is this event free, it also provides a place for students to grab their yearbook and enjoy looking through it in a relaxed and fun environment. Come to Finals Fling this Friday, May 4 at 5pm!
