Activities Fest Promotes Great Student Benefits

On April 24th, the Activities Fest was held at the BYU-Idaho stadium. The event was put on by the Student Activities Program to help show students what activities are provided on campus to help make their college experience more entertaining and enjoyable.

“Activities Fest is a chance for people to come by and to explore all of the different activities that are available on campus and to see what they can get involved in,” said Mikayla Rivera, manager of the Writer’s Gro within Talent Activities. “They can see all the people who share talents or things that they enjoy.”

“Competitive Sports is here, Rec Sports, Wellness, Social, Outdoor; all of them are here,” said Mike Collett, the Broadcasting Lead for the Competitive Sports program.

“So we’re just doing a big fest to promote all the activities as a whole,” said Michael Tilden, the Area Director for Outdoor Activities. “Kind of like ‘catch the school on fire with enthusiasm’.”

With programs such as social and talent activities, life skills, outdoor activities, sports, and service activities, students are bound to find at least one thing they are interested in being a part of. Some students may think they are too busy to participate, but many others say that being involved in any of these activities is a great benefit for them.

“Students will benefit almost astronomically, I think, from participating in different activities on campus,” said Rivera. “It’s an opportunity to improve who you are, to improve what you do, to understand other people, and to find other people who enjoy the same things you do. It’s an amazing thing to experience, I think, and it certainly broadens my horizons amazingly.”

So if you’re tired of being bored after your school studies and want to be a part of something fun and exciting, come join one of the great Student Activities programs. More information can be found on the school website, or visit the Students Activities office in the MC.
