Office of Student Activities & Engagement Hold Inaugural Fourth of July Cookout

July 9, 2012

The Office of Student Activities & Engagement hosted a celebration to commemorate the significance of the fourth of July, Tuesday, July 2, on the mall of the MLK Conference Center. "We wanted to do something special not only for our students, but faculty and staff who have served in the military," stated Tonya Gooch, interim director of Student Activities & Engagement.

"This event is so important because the Declaration of Independence is more than just a piece of paper. It is a symbol of our country's independence and commitment and we wanted to convey that message to our students," said Gooch.

The Office of Student Activities & Engagement plans to make this an annual event.
