The Sigma Nu fraternity is taking part in the ‘21 Days of Change’ movement by hosting the Stay Afloat race to raise money for TOMS shoes. Teams of three will meet up and build a cardboard boat. Teams will then have to race around the pool.
“I’m really looking forward to the race. Not only do I get to help raise money for a great cause, but I can’t wait to compete,” junior English major Jenessa Hauschildt said.
The team with the quickest time around the pool will win a prize. Teams will also win a prize for the most ingenuity and the best design. Stay Afloat will be held on April 14 in the Virgil Henson Activities Center, at 6:30 p.m. It costs $15 to enter as a team of three. All of the building supplies will be provided by Sigma Nu. Following the boat races, there will be a dive-in movie in which students will be able to enjoy a movie while they swim.
“I hate the water and try not to go swimming, but I’m totally going to the dive-in movie,” Jacob Rives, a sophomore Music Performance major, said.
