This year’s Sibley Day is right around the corner and students can use this time to think about which events they want to participate in on Feb. 18. Just like in previous years,  Sibley Day is a great opportunity to do fun activities, attend interesting speeches or participate in special events that will give everyone the chance to educate themselves about something new.

This year’s theme is “Hear Us Roar” and with a total of 51 events that will be available to the students, everyone is encouraged to attend as many as possible. The first activities start at 9 a.m. and run throughout the day with the later ones ending at 9 p.m.

Anyone wishes but has not had a chance to donate blood can do so between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the Spellmann Connection at the Red Cross Blood Drive.

Also, many student organizations organized special events as well, such as Active Minds with their “Post Secret” event where they want to raise more awareness about mental health, the Gender Studies Club with their talk about sexuality, or the Natural Science Club and their session about teaching fun and easy science concepts.

If students are interested in taking their studies abroad, they can learn about opportunities and scholarships at the “Roar Around The World” event or they can talk to students and faculty who have studied abroad to get more information at the “Study Abroad” session.

Several events give anyone opportunities to gain information on future jobs, guidelines on how to create the perfect resume, or tips for job interviews.

Musical acts and concerts will also be part of Sibley Day this year, with an acoustic performance by solo artist and Lindenwood alumna Danny Simms, organized by Delta Tau Delta, or the Central Tendency concert at the Sibley chapel.

A detailed schedule of these events and more can be found online.  Anyone who participated in any of the activities has the chance to win prizes at the end of the day at the Sibley Day Attendance Prize Drawings at Evans Commons.

The full schedule will be printed in Tuesday’s Legacy.
