Block Party and Dance Planned Thursday at SWOSU

Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s back-to-school activities are scheduled to continue this Thursday (August 22) with the annual Block Party on the Weatherford campus.

From 5-9 p.m. on the lawn outside the Memorial Student Center, all SWOSU students are invited to enjoy inflatables, games, and giveaways. There will also be a live performance by the eight-piece Oklahoma based band SquadLive. 

Sarah Mueggenborg, assistant director of residence life and housing, said the grill and cafeteria will be closed during this time, but students will be able to enjoy picnic-style food at the event free of charge.

Following the outdoor festivities, the party will move into the University Grill for a dance. A DJ will be available to take requests and all students are welcome. The dance will conclude around midnight.

Both events are free of charge.
