Student Appreciation

Centered around the 257th birthday of Thomas Jefferson, Student Council will launch "Constituency Appreciation Week" on April 10-14 to extend gratitude to the University student body for its active role in the community.

The event will offer free goodies and fun-filled, wholesome activities for students.

"This is Student Council's way of thanking students for participating in events, coming to forums and for voting," said Abby Fifer, College representative and second-year College student.

"Constituency Appreciation Week" will take place on the Lawn this week, with representatives manning a table outside Cocke Hall.

"We'll be out there giving away free stuff like stickers, cups and candy to anyone that comes by," Fifer said.

Representatives will be out on the Lawn April 10-14 to hand out the free goodies.

"We ask a lot of students during the year and we rarely thank them. That's what we'd like to do this week," Fifer said.

Thursday, the event will shift to a focus on Jefferson himself with a birthday bash at the Newcomb Hall Plaza from 1 to 5 p.m. The party, which is free to all students, will offer a DJ as well as Big Jim's Barbecue. In honor of Jefferson's birthday, Student Council representatives also will be distributing free cake, donated by area merchants, on the Lawn and in the Schools of Engineering, Nursing, Architecture and Education.
