Tomorrow, February 11, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. the Program Council will host Build-A-Bae, which takes the worldwide Build-A-Bear concept mobile to Sam Houston State University. Anyone will be able to customize a bear of their very own.
The Program Council will set up on the Lowman Student Center mall area. Representatives from the Program Council said to expect a line, as everyone in attendance will receive a free Build-A-Bear designed to their specifications.
The student-ran organization hosts dozens of events every semester. Tomorrow night, February 10, the Council will host another movie night, this time The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part II will be screened.
In February alone, the Program Council will host a handful of events, targeted at every kind of student.
Vice President of Internal Relations Paiten Chriss enjoys Program Council because of the fun atmosphere and the ability to give back to students.
“Program Council is a group that aims to incorporate fun into the community,” Chriss said. “Every activity the Program Council puts on is free to all students.”
Chriss said the best way to get involved is to keep your eyes open. Flyers and brochures with the group’s activities are printed regularly and make their way around the college.
For those who are unable to track down one of the pamphlets, on the last Monday of each month the Program Council serves free breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the LSC Mall.
Freshman Jeremy Bennett said although he has little knowledge of what the Program Council is, he is interested in the benefits it offers students.
“I have never heard of the Program Council before,” Bennett said. “This ‘Build-A-Bae’ thing sounds really fun though. I’ll have to check it out. Plus, those movies sound like a cool place to chill with friends.”
Build-A-Bae is an opportunity for students who may have never heard of Program Council to attend the complimentary events or even the movie the night before.
“It really is a great deal for college students like us, I can’t wait for Thursday,” Bennett said.
