Students show school pride during Cardinal Days

The Saint Mary’s University Student Activities Committee (SAC) always does its best to present students with fun activities on campus.

This year, SAC presented Cardinal Days, a sort of “homecoming week” that provided events and activities for students and invited them to show off their Cardinal pride.

“Since we don't have a football team, we try to do other things throughout the week to generate school spirit,” said Connie Budin, president of SAC.

This year’s Cardinal Days incorporated different dress-up days and gave students chances to win prizes like SMU water bottles, pens and notepads for their attire. Monday was “Wear Red Day,” followed by “Professional Dress Day” on Tuesday. SAC also sponsored a Tug of War contest Tuesday evening, which took place by the Gazebo. The winning team was awarded a $100 gift card to Godfather’s Pizza.

The Big Red Cardinal made an appearance on Wednesday in the cafeteria during lunch hours, and the movie Bridesmaids was shown in Salvi Lecture Hall in the evening.

Thursday was “Thrift Store Treasure Dress Day” and an afternoon presentation of “Can I Kiss You?” was held in the Page Theatre for freshmen.

Friday concluded Cardinal Days with the band The Morning Foreign in the Toner Student Center Game Room.

Each event was free to students and gave them an opportunity to have some fun and show their Cardinal pride.

Look out for more free and exciting activities presented by SAC throughout the year.
