The Spring Campus Kick Off on Wednesday, Jan. 29, was an event organized by Tabitha Sherrell designed to allow students to engage with all that Volunteer State has to offer. The event hosted over twenty different booths including booths from several student led clubs and organizations such as CAB, a student led organization that organizes events designed to boost student engagement on campus, such as setting up events like “Movies on the Lawn.” Booths from Academic Support and Learning, the library, as well as Distributed Education, formerly known as Disability Services, were also be available with more information for students to better understand just what options they have on campus as well as many other organizations intended to benefit students at Volunteer State .
The League of Women’s voters also had a booth set up to try and engage young voters and encourage registration, and even offered the ability to register to vote directly from their table.
This was the 8th year that Volunteer State has run the Spring Campus Kick Off, though it may have been known under a different name in years past. The Kick Off brings in around 200 students and has steadily increased in attendance since it’s start in 2012.
