SCGL plans a variety of programs and events throughout the year to further develop clubs/organizations and to integrate them into the UAA community.
Student Involvement Fair
At the beginning of each semester, student clubs/organizations are invited to participate in the Student Involvement Fair. At this event, clubs/organizations are given a table in which they can decorate and promote themselves to interested students on campus. This two-hour event is a fantastic way to showcase all of the amazing benefits that come along with participating in our 90+ clubs/organizations.
Homecoming Shopping Cart Parade
An annual staple of UAA’s Homecoming festivities, the Shopping Cart Parade brings excitement and cheer to our campus and our community. When a club or department registers for this event, it is given the opportunity to transform a shopping cart into an exhilarating exhibit of University and club pride. Each participating organization has four days to decorate its “float,” at which point members showcase their work to other students and a panel of judges on a route throughout campus. The top 10 floats are given an award and are asked to bring their work onto the rink during an intermission of a Seawolves hockey game at the Kendall Classic.
Haunted Halloween Fun Night
Haunted Halloween Fun Night (HHFN) has been a safe and warm alternative to trick-or-treating for over 25 years. Each year, student clubs/organizations completely take over the Student Union and are given the opportunity to host a Halloween-themed activity for the Anchorage community. Each organization is allowed to set its own ticket price, raising money for both their club and for charity. In 2014, HHFN brought in $1,700 for the Make-A-Wish foundation. General attendance is 4,000-6,000.
