Coming up in the second weekend in April, the Student Governing Board (SGB) and The Pulse are presenting the “Best Weekend Ever”! As part of the “Best Weekend Ever,” Lewis will be hosting a spring concert, as well as spring formal the following night. Starting Frida,y April 8, 2011, Jason Derulo is in concert at the Lewis University Student Recreation and Fitness Center (SRFC). The tickets are twenty dollars each and each student may buy up to six tickets per Student I.D. The show starts at 8:30PM, but the doors open at 7:30PM. Finding out Jason Derulo was coming to Lewis was a long and anticipated event because all of us students knew there was a performer coming but did not find out until February 21 that he was the entertainer that he would be live for all of us to see on April 8.
As the second part to the “Best Weekend Ever” on Saturday April 9, 2011 the SGB and the Pulse are hosting the Bedcheck’s VIP Party, which is the spring formal and it is aboard the Navy Pier’s the Odyssey. The Odyssey is a gorgeous yacht that is stationed right in Lake Michigan. Everybody that I have talked to that has been to past spring formals has had an amazing time. The tickets are forty dollars per ticket or seventy five dollars per couple. The event starts at midnight but buses from Lewis load in the SRFC at 9:30PM.
The “Best Weekend Ever” is just one great event Lewis hosts. Lewis is always coming up with ideas to make student life fun and active. The programs and entertainers that Lewis brings in always adds something special to this already great campus. You will never get bored at Lewis, because there is always something fun and exciting to do. It is especially nice that Lewis plans these great events that will be in our college memories forever.
