A carnival-themed Centennial celebration will be held on April 13 for Saint Mary’s University students from 3-6 p.m., which will be followed by a “decade dance” from 7:30-10 p.m.
“Everyone should come dressed as their favorite decade,” said sophomore Centennial Student Leader Ashley Walz. There will be games and events going on throughout the evening with a dance at the end, she said.
Throughout the school year there have been many events to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Saint Mary’s University. The year started off with a university-wide convocation as well as celebrations in Winona and Chicago.
There is currently a “Saint Mary’s University-Centennial Student Event!” Facebook event page dedicated to the event to provide information and encourage students to participate.
“There are a lot of students following the event. Students can find different facts and trivia about Saint Mary’s on the page, and answers to the questions can be used at the event to earn tickets and prizes,” said Walz.
Facts and more information are also available by following @SMUCSLevent on Twitter.
