SWOSU Students Invited to The Starting Block and Project Blue this Saturday


The News Student Orientation Office at SWOSU invites students to several events that the office is hosting during Dawg Days on the Weatherford campus.

The first activity is a freshman event, The Starting Block, which is this Saturday, August 18, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Wellness Center. The freshmen will meet with their Orientation Leader and their freshman orientation class as a group. They will talk the night’s activities and upcoming events for Dawg Days. 

Following The Starting Block will be Project Blue. This event will be held at the Wellness Center from 7:30-9:30 p.m. It gives both freshmen and upperclassmen a chance to get plugged in to campus life beginning after Move-In Day earlier that day.

Events to be held at Project Blue include:  exotic petting zoo, spray-on tattoos, inflatable games, digital pictures, picture frame decorating, dancing, carnival games, rock wall climbing, food and more! One of the bigger prizes is a Kindle Fire. The entire event is free to students.

SWOSU Collegiate Activities Board (CAB) is co-sponsoring the exotic animals and will be giving away prizes using the prize wheel.

This event is sponsored by NSO with help from SWOSU CAB,  SWOSU Guard Officer Leadership Development Program (GOLD), SWOSU Wellness Center staff, Legends and the Oklahoma Army National Guard.

The Orientation Leaders will offer campus/building tours on Monday, August 20, at 1:30 p.m.  The students will meet on the front steps of the Stafford Center and become more familiar with the buildings and the locations of their classes. This event is for freshmen and transfer students.  It is also open to any other students interested in becoming more familiar with SWOSU. It is helpful if the students will bring the most updated copy of their class schedule.
