3 events to look for in the spring semester
January 24, 2018
The spring 2018 semester will bring plenty big changes, campus-favorite events and opportunities for student participation throughout the semester, but here are three significant ones to look out for:
This semester Nicholls welcomed a new president, Jay Clune. Lynn Gillette, Nicholls’ previous provost and vice president for academic affairs, will now be the special assistant to Clune.
According to Nicholls’ website, Sue Westbrook will be the interim provost and vice president for academic affairs until a replacement is found. At the recent university convocation, Clune announced he will also be combining the position of dean of student life and dean of student services, with Michele Caruso heading the new position.
There will also be a new position called the executive vice president of enrollment and external affairs. This position will replace the vice president for advancement and the chief of staff.
Crawfish Day 2018 will be held on Apr. 27 at 5:00 p.m. and will feature food, music and various activities. In the past, Crawfish Day was held next to the John L. Guidry Stadium. Over four thousand pounds of crawfish were served to students and faculty. Last year was the first time that the event was held in the evening to allow more people to attend. Mr. and Mrs. Nicholls were also announced at the event.
For the spring semester the Student Government Association and the Student Programming Association will both hold elections for president and vice president, said Dolly McGeever from the Office of Student Affairs. Mr. and Mrs. Nicholls will also be elected in the spring.
