Send your ideas for a great campus activity to Jessica Alexander and Jasmine Stutzman, campus activities directors. Submissions can be as simple as, “I’d like to go bowling sometime soon,” or with more detail, like, “I think we should commemorate Hesston College’s history with a costume party. It could all take place in BSC with prizes for best costume (prize–dinner for two catered by a prof), most historically accurate (leftovers from the dinner for two), and wildest get-up (a pair of flip flops and an HC sweatshirt).”
