New event will remember Lakers

Posted on

The Laker Traditions Team in Student Life is organizing a new campus event to remember students, alumni, faculty and staff members who have died in the past year.

Laker Remembrance will take place Thursday, October 10, at 8 p.m. at the Cook Carillon Tower on the Allendale Campus. It is open to the campus community.

Crossbow, a student celtic band, and Euphoria, an acapella group, will perform songs. Student Senate President Ricky Benavidez will emcee the night that will include readings and a vigil. The Cook Carillon Tower will chime once in memoriam for each person.

LeaAnn Tibbe, assistant director of Student Life, said the event idea came about during a Laker Traditions Team brainstorm session last spring. The team is hoping to make this an annual event.
