Social Work Club is hosting a Christmas Extravaganza on Thursday. Beginning at 8 p.m. in JFK, students can take pictures with Santa, relieve stress by hitting a piñata, and enjoy Christmas cookies. Admission is $1; there is no additional cost for any of the activities.

With the stress of finals week beginning to kick in on Friday, students can take a few minutes to relax at Campus Spa during 2 p.m. through 6 p.m. in JFK. A Christmas themed bingo will follow the event, which starts at 8 p.m. The prizes will be wrapped, so students who win will have the chance to open a Christmas gift.

To conclude the week’s events, an open mic night will take place in Frankie’s at 8 p.m. Students are encouraged to wear an ugly Christmas sweater and sing Christmas songs. There will also be a hot chocolate bar at the event.

Christmas movies will be played on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday during the events.

“This is a new event for SAO and I’m really excited to see how it turns out,” said Bailey Edwards, an SAO member who planned the entire week.
