Musical Event Planned in Conjunction with Relay for Life at SWOSU


In a series of new on-campus events, the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Student Government Association and the Collegiate Activities Board are working together to sponsor a free outdoor concert in Weatherford to coincide with this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life event on April 25.

The event, called “Notapalooza”, is not a rival to this year’s SWOSUpalooza 9 but will showcase performers that were unable to perform on the main stage of SWOSUpalooza 9 the night before on April 24.

Greg Franklin, recently reelected as SGA president, said the event is one of several in a push to create more activities involving the arts on campus for students. Franklin continues to spearhead this movement, along with several small student advisory groups. Other related events include a recent poetry reading, an upcoming movie night, and several other new happenings planned in the future. Franklin said the events are being planned in a hope to increase activities for students, not only during the week, but also on nights and weekends.

Notapalooza will begin at 9 p.m. and will be held across from the Wellness Center in front of Parker Hall on the SWOSU campus. Any students interested in helping should contact SGA or CAB. They welcome ideas and suggestions.
