August Provides Students with Plenty of Activities

Students Gather at the Viking Pride Bash.

The new semester is here and the campus is buzzing with activity.

Students are moving in for the semester, professors are getting ready for the first day of class, and staff is busy preparing a list of events to kick off 2017-2018. This past Sunday, freshmen were treated to Viking Pride Bash at the Vaughan Center, and throughout the month there’s more to come for everyone.

The start of fall semester at Elizabeth City State University has a big list of activities beginning this week, and running to the end of August. According to the folks at Student Affairs, there are more than 20 activities to help get students oriented with campus life, as well as one another.

From Cupcake Wars to the Polished, Poised and Professional Mixer, there will be something for everyone this month. Here’s a look at some of the activities planned, and if you’re looking for more information, contact the Office of Student Affairs at 252-335-3276.
