Filled with snacks, a recycle drive, puppies and a disc golf tournament, Dead Day will be anything but dead Monday.
The Students’ Association will be handing out snacks and drinks to students in front of Brown Library. Andrew Tate, SA vice president and senior biology major from Abilene, said this will be from 8-9 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Campus Activities Board will also bring puppies to campus. The puppies will be on the lawn in the mall area of campus from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
The Service Action Leadership Team is facilitating a recycling project from 1-4 p.m. in the University Church of Christ parking lot.
Audrey Gonzalez, a member of SALT, said students can bring clothes, furniture, decorations or recyclable items to the event. If students have furniture that is difficult to transport, the team can help carry the items.
“You get a voucher for a free Cajun cone, as well as the opportunity to ‘swap’ whatever items you brought to get something else someone brought,” said Gonzalez, senior communications major from San Antonio.
After the event, SALT will donate all unwanted items to charitable organizations or Goodwill.
“We are attentive to what our community needs,” Gonzalez said. “If a student or organization has a need, they are more than welcome to look through our items and take what they can find.”
ACU’s disc golf club will have its second annual Dead Day Disc Golf Tournament.
The event be at the Wildcat Disc Golf Course located by Smith and Adams halls. Doubles rounds are scheduled from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and singles will be from 1-3 p.m. Students can show up 30 minutes before events to register, sign up at the first hole, pay a $5 entry fee and start playing. Each round will last 18 holes, and prizes will be given to the winners.
Deonna Shake, club director and instructor in the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition, said all proceeds from the tournament will help support the disc golf club next year and pay for its competitions.
“It’s going to be very laid back,” Shake said. “It doesn’t take long, doesn’t take much skill, but you can still get competitive.”
Shake said all students are welcome to take a study break and come out for the Dead Day tournament.
