What is a festival without food and beverages? There will be various food and drink items such as 50 cent hot dogs, 25 cent chips, free Pepsi products (while supplies last), Kona snow cone truck featuring frozen treats with all proceeds benefiting the SC Food Pantry and Biggby Coffee will give away free drinks.

Out of all the things offered though out of the event the greatest thing that students should expect is a great social experience.

“It’s a great opportunity to learn about the clubs, organizations and student services all in one place,” states Todd Stowell, Director of Student Activities. “The added bonus is that it is a fun atmosphere where the students can play games and win prizes.”

All students are encouraged to attend since it encompasses the best of what Schoolcraft has to offer and may lead to a brighter path for our fellow Ocelots.
