â??Wildcat Wayâ?? Provides Alternative Events for Labor Day Weekend

Aug 26, 2013 5:35 PM

While some students may choose to partake in the usual Labor Day mayhem, The California State University, Chico will be providing alternative activities throughout the weekend.

The Associated Students, Chico Student Affairs, the Campus Alcohol and Drug Education Center (CADEC) the Wildcat Recreation Center and others have partnered in order to provide events and on-campus activities Thursday through Monday.

“The focus is to engage students and connect them to the campus and each other through safe and fun recreational and social activities planned for the evenings and weekend days during Labor Day,” said Taylor Herren, Associated Students president. “As a campus community, there is an opportunity to re-define what Labor Day weekend means to our University. The events that are planned will give students a chance to showcase what it really means to be a Chico State student and how to lead with the ‘Wildcat Way,’” she said.

The planning for the weekend, led by Chico State Students in conjunction with faculty and other staff memembers, is a product of discussions that were initiated with the Call to Action community summit meetings last spring. Some of the events taking place include a pool party at the Wildcat Recreation Center Friday night, a team competition of various events called Wildcat Challenge Saturday midday and an Epic Proportions Tour concert Saturday night.
