MTVu kicks off annual “Fall Fest” in LSC Mall

This week the Program Council is hosting “Fall Fest” – a week chock full of interactive activities for Sam Houston students. This year’s theme – “PC Guide Week” – will feature each event with a daily television network theme.

“Every year Program Council sponsors two weeks of programming. In the fall, it’s Fall Fest and in spring it’s Spring Fling. It’s just to get all the students involved and give them something fun to do,” said Angie Burns, assistant director for Student Activities.

On Monday, MTVu Roadtrip hosted a festival of sorts in the LSC Mall area. The event lasted from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. The mall was covered with booths, including one from the US Army, and a Beowulf jousting area. As always, free give-aways were in abundance for passer-by. Students were also able to enter a commercial they filmed during the event to be aired on the “Jimmy Kimmel Late Night Show.”

Monday’s event included a casting call for MTVU’s show “Cause Effect.” The show is a new feature on 10 different student activists working toward a better world.

On Tuesday, the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company will perform in the LSC Ballroom. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the 7 p.m. event.

Wednesday’s festivities include the “Food Network: Easy Snack Samples.” At noon in the LSC Mall area, the Program Council will serve free snacks.

“People can just stop by and get something on their way to “People can just stop by and get something on their way to class. Something different- free food,” Burns said.

On Thursday, PC will host “MTV: Make Your Own Music Video” in the LSC Atrium from 10 a.m. -4 p.m. Participants will be superimposed into their favorite music video. They will also be able to keep a copy of the music video.

Throughout the week, students arriving to events early will have the opportunity to receive free Program Council Fall Fest 2007 T-shirts. The shirts will be available as long as supplies last.
