Check out what's happening on campus this fall

Make the most of your college experience! Take part in the fun activities happening on campus this fall. Many college activities are free for students with a valid Blue & Gold Card.

Another school year has just begun, and with it comes a year of exciting opportunities and things to do at Seminole State College.

Throughout the Fall Term and the rest of the year, Seminole State has dozens of events and activities for students to enjoy outside the classroom, from artistic and cultural events to volunteer opportunities and free seminars.

Here are a few highlights of what you can expect around campus during the Fall Term.

Club Recruitment: Aug. 27-29

Are you a movie buff, dance aficionado or chess whiz? Are you looking for a reason to show off your karate skills or spend a weekend bass fishing?

Consider stopping by one of Seminole State’s Club Recruitment events, and check out the diverse ways you can get involved around campus and beyond. Meet like-minded new friends or discover interests you never knew you had as the Office of Student Life showcases Seminole State’s 50+ clubs and organizations. With so many options, there’s something for everyone, so don’t miss your chance to get involved!

Events for each campus are scheduled for the following dates:

  • Altamonte Springs: Aug. 27, noon-2 p.m.
  • Heathrow: Aug. 27, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
  • Oviedo: Aug. 29, noon-2 p.m.
  • Sanford/Lake Mary: Aug. 28, noon-2 p.m.

And if you can’t find what you’re looking for, why not start an official student club or organization of your own?

Free Student Activities

Each semester, the Office of Student Life and the Student Government Association sponsor many exciting events that are free to students with a valid student ID. This fall, the Back 2 School Comedy Jam kicks off Student Life’s live entertainment series on Friday, Sept. 6, on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus (building G), with more events to come throughout the year.

For more information and an updated list of upcoming events, check the Office of Student Life’s calendar.

New! Skill Sessions

Sharpen your skills outside the classroom with Seminole State’s free mini-courses. Skill Sessions cover topics ranging from fraud and identity theft prevention to resume building and interview skills. Skill Sessions are convenient, informative and free, and they’ll give you practical knowledge and advice you will be able to use at Seminole State and beyond.

Cultural Arts Events

From jazz to baroque music, dramas to musicals, art exhibits to poetry readings, Seminole State has the ticket for you this semester.

Seminole State’s Fine Arts Season kicks off on Aug. 28 with a gallery exhibit of photographer Rick Lang’s work, which features photos he took as he traveled throughout the American Southeast. Seminole State’s music faculty will show off their skills in a series of instrumental recitals beginning Sept. 24, and the theater season will open on Oct. 4 with Professor Bobbie Bell’s adaptation of the classic Aristophanes comedy “Lysistrata.”

Other entertainment options open to students include the monthly open-mic poetry reading series Tuesday Voices, as well as shows each weekend at the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium, beginning Friday, Aug. 30, with its flagship show, Central Florida Nights.

All performances and shows are free to students who present a valid Blue & Gold Card and current class schedule.
