MOUNT VERNON— Returning BPC students know there are a lot more events on the calendar this year compared to last, and a lot of those events are due to the effort of Brewton-Parker’s new Student Activities Director, Jennifer Wooten. As a 2011 BPC graduate, Wooten already has a passion for both the campus and the students. She majored in business with a management emphasis.
When she heard that Brewton-Parker was searching for a new Student Activities Director, Wooten was excited. She said, “I wanted this job more than anything. I knew it was perfect for me.” She loves planning events. “All my friends and family were like, that is perfect job for you,” she explained.
Her goals as the Student Activities Director will result in even more fun for students. She hopes to have something planned every Thursday and Friday night. These activities range from simple game nights, to watching football as a group, and to the more elaborate Bowling Night this week. Part of her goal is personal; she hopes to restore some of what she experienced coming into Brewton-Parker as a freshman. Wooten described how students were always active on campus, through Greek life and at athletic events. She then explains, “I want to give students the same opportunity to enjoy college that I had.”
In addition to weekly activities, Gridiron Saturdays will be occurring each Saturday throughout the semester. This will allow students to cheer on their favorite college football team while hoping their friend’s team will be pulverized. There will be a Zumba Fitness class held in the gym every Monday.
Intramurals are starting up again with sand volleyball and flag football. Another event during the month of September will be Bowling Night on Thursday, Sept. 13, where students only need to take their ID card to the bowling alley to play. On Friday, Sept. 21, students can participate in a game called “Battle of the Sexes.” Other events for this month will be an 80’s themed Bingo Night and a Game Night. You can find out more information about these activities by looking at the school’s general calendar at www.bpc.edu.
