The Happening 2011

VALDOSTA -- For one afternoon each fall, Valdosta State University’s front lawn becomes a forum where more than 100 local businesses and organizations meet face to face with VSU students to offer useful knowledge about the university and the community surrounding them.

The Happening 2011, scheduled for 1-4 p.m. Thursday, August 25 promises to be the event of the semester with more tents, games and freebies than last year’s affair, which was the largest in its 20-year history.

Participation in the thrilling, yet informative, event is free for both exhibitors and students. No selling or fundraising is allowed at the event, but businesses and community organizations often provide free food samples, prizes and promotional giveaways. VSU departments and student clubs will also pass out information and engage students in balloon tosses, basketball throws, miniature golf and many other activities.

Campus groups, local business, and community organizations can register with Student Life until Thursday, August 18th. Additional information and registration forms for businesses, community groups, and campus organizations are available on the Student Life website at http://www.valdosta.edu/stulife/TheHappening.shtml .

Call the Office of Student Life at 333-5674 for more information.
