Seniors feast for chance to win an iPad

Kent State’s annual Wieners for Seniors event will be September 1, at the Brain Plaza in front of Moulton Hall.

“The overall goal of this program is to help get our seniors excited about being seniors,” said Carrie Circosta, assistant director of Alumni Relations. “This is a great opportunity … to let them know about the resources the Alumni Association offers to them.”

At the event, there will be drinks, chips and, of course, the signature turkey, veggie and pork hot dogs that give Wieners for Seniors its name.

“Any student — freshman, sophomore, junior — can stop by, but we want to make sure, since this is a senior event, that the seniors are the ones getting the food,” Circosta said. “We’re going to have a pop-up tent in the plaza, so the seniors have to check in with us before they can get food.”

Seniors can check in by printing out their e-mail invitation from the Alumni Association or showing the e-mail on their phones.

Circosta said the prizes at the event would be different this year than in the past.

“This year, we have free (hot dog-shaped stress balls),” she said. “The music is the same; we’re going to have a DJ out there near the brain, as well. The iPad is something new this year, as well.”

The iPad will be raffled away to a senior who follows the directions posted by KSUAlumni on Twitter.

“This is just a small way to help us kick off the celebration for our seniors,” Circosta said. “This is a huge milestone in their life.
