VWU traditions return to campus with less restrictions

Now that Virginia Wesleyan University has dropped some of its COVID-19 restrictions, including mask mandates and social distancing, clubs and student organizations are eager to get back to event-planning. The event line-up for spring semester shows just how excited the entirety of VWU is to get back to normal.

We are back to normal and hope that Marlin Nation is as excited as the Off The Hook and Student Activities team,” Director of Student Activities Sarah Guzzo said. “Student Organizations are also ramping up their event calendars now that there are no restrictions for COVID.”

There is a wide variety of upcoming events planned for the remainder of spring semester. On March 25, Craft Night will be held from 7:30-9 p.m. in the Harbor Grill. Also on March 25, St. Patrick’s Day Pub ‘N Club will be in the CMAC at 9 p.m.. Moving into April, Bob’s Birthday Bash will be held on April 8 from 6:30-11 p.m. in Harbor Grill and on the University Quad. Movie Crew is hosting a Dive-In Movie on April 15 at 8 p.m. in the Batten Center pool. From April 17-22, a Campus Clothes Swap will be held in Kramer Lounge by the rock wall. The Bobbies: Student Leadership Award Ceremony will be held on April 22 at 2:30 p.m. in Brock Commons. To end April, Prom: An Enchanted Evening is planned for April 30 at 8 p.m. in the CMAC. Spa A La Marlin will then take place on May 5 from 12-3 p.m.. Ending the school year, VWU’s annual Late Night Breakfast will be held on May 5 from 10-12 p.m..

Many of the above-listed events, including St. Patrick’s Day Pub ‘N Club, Bob’s Birthday Bash, The Bobbies, Spa A La Marlin and Late Night Breakfast, are returning pre-COVID-19 campus traditions. As clubs and student organizations create and plan more events, they will be added to the Student Activities Calendar. Keep an eye out for all of the upcoming on-campus, maskless events!
