A variety of Irish-themed activities made their way to the Student Union for its early Saint Patrick’s Day celebration Monday.
The event, sponsored by SUBOG, took place on the first floor in the main hall, where various booths were decked out in the classic Irish green. Many organizations were set to use the holiday in order to promote their various causes, from alcohol awareness to raising money for Syria.
In the lounges, other activities were available including Irish Step-Dance lessons, as well as glass etching. In addition, free snacks were distributed. The options ranged from delicious cupcakes, decorated with shamrocks and green sprinkles, to cookies and Irish coffee.
The event did seem to generate quite a bit of interest, all snacks were gone in a matter of minutes, and all seats were continuously filled at the glass etching station.
