New Event to Become a Tradition
Submitted on September 6, 2018
What a night.
Clouds and the threat of rain didn’t dampen spirits as well over 250 students and other members of the campus community turned out for Georgetown College’s Street Fair launch. It was held along Memorial Drive, the main entrance. Sponsored by SGA, the Student Government Association, the street fair featured displays and exhibits by over 40 campus clubs and organizations as well as numerous area businesses.
"I think the inaugural GC Street Fair was a major success,” commented Ross Buskey, director of student engagement. “The bad weather held off and the September sunset did not disappoint. Considering it was the first year for the event and we had a quarter of our student body attend I think that was excellent.”
Buskey added that students seemed to have a really good time. He noted that almost every club and campus organization had potential new members express interest in joining. It was also great exposure for the participating local businesses, including food trucks, giving them an opportunity to introduce themselves to students.
“It was a hit,” enthused college first lady, Mrs. Carolyn Greene.
Buskey expects the GC street fair to get bigger and better going forward and sees it becoming a staple event among college traditions.
“All in all, I think the SGA executive committee did great work in preparing and planning,” Buskey remarked. “SGA looks forward to next year.”
Any area business interested in participating in the 2019 street fair is invited to contact Buskey at 502-863-8370 or email Ross_Buskey@georgetowncollege.edu.
