BCM sponsoring swim party, other events

Released: 08/16/2005

The Baptist Collegiate Ministry at LSU Alexandria is sponsoring several functions to welcome students back to campus. All of the events are open to students, faculty and staff.

A tailgate/swim party is scheduled for noon Friday, Aug. 26, at the Fitness Center swimming pool. BCM Director Yvette Palmer said the event is designed to give students a chance to meet new friends on campus. The party will conclude around 3 p.m., and the BCM will serve hamburgers.

The BCM also will host games in the quad throughout Welcome Week, Aug. 22-25.

A concert featuring the contemporary Christian group Altar’d will be held at noon Sept. 7 in the campus quad. The BCM will serve lunch.

Sept. 9 is the deadline to sign up for “Gotcha,” a friendly game of tag on the LSUA campus. At a cost of $5, players are issued plastic dart guns and eliminate other players on campus. The last player standing wins a gift certificate to a local restaurant. The game begins Sept. 13.
