Raritan Valley Community College's Student Life Activities and Planning (SLAP) Board, formerly Program Board, hosted the "Fall 2014 Welcome Back Picnic/RVCC Spirit Day" with the assistance of the Student Life Office on Tuesday, September 16 in the school's courtyard. Student organizations and clubs recruited members at promotional tables, and The Golden Lion’s Club Sponsors and RVCC Student Services Departments promoted their services.
Spencer Gallagher, who performs under the name DJ Gally, provided the musical entertainment, various students joined in a choreographed “spirit dance” and the Affinity Federal Credit Union provided a cash money box to encourage students to catch money and win prizes. The top prize was an Ipod Shuffle, courtesy of Pepsi. The remaining prizes included RVCC t-shirts; gift cards to Rita’s Italian Ice, Culinart Food Services and the Golden Lion Bookstore; movie ticket vouchers, courtesy of SLAP; and the RVCC Planetarium Laser Show Ticket Vouchers, courtesy of the RVCC Planetarium.
Additional activities included henna, face painting, caricatures, stretch/massage table, pretzels provided by Rutgers, Italian Ice provided by Rita’s and a photo strip booth to capture the memories of this year’s Spirit Day.
