On Tuesday, students gathered in Gaiser Hall for Stuff a Bigfoot, a part of the activities programming board’s ongoing week of events meant to bring students together. 

Each student that attended had the opportunity to stuff and take home a bigfoot doll along with a t-shirt. 

Students filtered in, grabbing a stuffing kit, their bigfoot and free ice cream as they settled down to watch Harry and the Hendersons and stuff their sasquatch. 

After the temporary shift to virtual events during the height of the pandemic, event attendance lowered. While pre-covid events would bring in over 100 students, Tuesday’s event saw 15 attendees. 

Even with classes back in person, some students still attend class virtually, meaning in-person events will take longer to return to normal.

“I think that speaks to the percentage of students that are actually on campus,” said Sami Lelo, student life program support advisor. 

The activities programming board typically puts on 50 events a year, all funded by the student activity fee that students pay alongside tuition. All students are welcome and encouraged to attend these events.

“The main goal for the Activities Programming Board is to provide events for students to connect and find a sense of belonging,” said Lelo. 

Students who want to join the activities programming board are required to be enrolled in at least 8 college credits, maintain a 2.50 cumulative GPA and have completed a minimum of 12 college credits at Clark. A student that meets these qualifications and wants to join needs to fill out an activities programming board application, draft a paper outlining their qualifications and submit their resume to career services. 

More information on the Activities Programming Board can be found on their website.
