Sophomore council will host Eggstravaganza Thursday March 31 and 4:30 p.m., allowing all Union students to hunt for eggs behind the chapel and compete for a grand prize.
The Easter eggs will be hidden in the grove behind the chapel. Colored eggs will be filled with candy, but one golden egg will be hidden, allowing the finder to win a Fitbit.
The sophomore class came up with the idea for the Easter egg hunt during SGA retreat this February.
“We were sitting around and talking about how every other class council has something they always do,” said history major and sophomore class secretary Seth Reid. “We wanted to create a legacy for the sophomore class.”
Other class councils have a tradition of passing down their signature events. The freshman class has a signature fall event called Pilgrim Palooza and junior council maintains the tradition of hosting the annual Cardinal Ball.
The sophomore council wanted to create a sophomore class event that was successful enough to be carried on for years to come.
Sophomore council noticed that SGA typically had its most successful events around different holidays and they wanted to celebrate the Easter season in a fun way.
“We figured it would be a good time for people to come together and socialize after the break as they are getting back in the full swing of classes,” said nursing major and sophomore class treasurer Anna Jenkins.
