Gannon University Students Are Saying Anchors Aweigh, with SPRINGtopia Events
Posted: April 24, 2014
It's SPRINGtopia at Gannon University and the students are saying
Anchors Aweigh to the school year. With finals week just around the
corner Gannon's Activities Programing Board has lined up a week
full of activities for students to get involved in and take a break
"A lot of time and thought was put into this event so we hope
that it is as rewarding of an experience for our students as it is
for us planning it," said Vernadette Delos Santos, Activities
Programing Board, special events co-chair. "Our hopes for
Springtopia this year is to engage students in activities and
events that they will enjoy during their final 'real' week of
school before finals begin."
The theme for this year is Anchors Aweigh; a sailing term that
means the anchor is clear of the bottom and the boat is ready to
take off. "We picked the theme Anchors Aweigh for many reasons,
but mostly because the anchor symbolizes hope, faith and love, and aweigh means taking off, which is very interesting, given the types
of activities and atmosphere we are providing for the students,"
said co-chair Julia Leix.
