Schoolcraft College’s School Daze is set for 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Monday, September 19, in the TrinityElite Sports Performance Center (formerly named the St. Joe’s Mercy Elite Sports Center). This annual one-day fall festival lets students know about and interact with all the student clubs, organizations and campus support offices Schoolcraft College offers.
This year’s theme is “School Daze Fall Festival: Let’s Play.” New for this year is the “Human Library”-type attraction, specifically, “The Humanity Project: Diverse Dialogues and Experiences.”
Sponsored by Learning Support Services STARS DEI, Bradner Library and the Student Activities Office, this event will feature people with diverse stories and experiences, or “books,” shared with the College community. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) “books” will be featured from 10:00 a.m. to noon, with vocational “books” to follow from noon-2:00 p.m.
Other School Daze attractions include:
- Live entertainment on the main stage
- Club Fair offered up by SC student organizations
- Campus resources
- Community Fair coordinated by the Hinkle Center
- Marketplace with local businesses
- Transfer college section
- Food available in the Ocelot Café
- Games every 20 minutes and prizes
- Hot dogs for 50 cents, chips for 25 cents
Test your athletic prowess
The move to TrinityElite Sports Performance Center allows students and visitors to test their agility by playing pickleball, soccer, flag football and/or volleyball inside next to the fair. Also available will be Allied Advertising (with free sneak preview movie passes), psychics, a free caricature artist, an Escape Room, ax throwing and free 10-minute chair massages from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Register to vote and more
Other services and attractions include the League of Women Voters will be out to register students to vote in local, regional and national elections, and the Asian Student Association will have a henna artist to create art for participants. A small fee is associated, with 100% of proceeds going to the Schoolcraft College Food Pantry.
Finally, the Hinkle Student Resource Center has joined Student Activities again this year to provide a Community Service (Resource/Wellness) Fair for Schoolcraft College students. This partnership allows the College to have community agencies from across the area right here on campus to inform students of the services available to them.
