“Positively RIC” to bring events and prizes galore to campus

Tyler Jackman


Just because spring break has come to an end, doesn't mean the festivities are over. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, with the kick off of “Positively RIC” here to anchor in smiles, games and prizes throughout March.

Beginning March 18, RIC will kick off a series of events designed to beat the midterm blues and spread that classic RIC joy across campus. From crafts to games, or listening events to career guidance, “Positively RIC” is designed to bring something to the table for everyone.

Not only will the campus be alive with events and spirit, but “Positively RIC” swag awaits every student who participates. Each event one attends earns a student a point, with points accumulating in the end for prizes such as “Positively RIC” hats, t-shirts, or even entry to a $200 Amazon gift card raffle.

The festivities will begin on Monday in the Quad with “Back Yard Games” sponsored by Dr. Kristen Pepin of the Health and Physical Education Department, with Kan Jam, Spikeball, and corn hole to get students breaking a sweat and fueling that sporty spirit. Monday won’t slow down there, as “Back Yard Games” will be followed by “The Presentation Presentation” in the Student Union, a workshop on public speaking and presenting, and “Nostalgia Night” at the Student Union Ballroom, with food, games and musical bingo.

Looking to improve your hustle? “Positively RIC” is meant for you. The rest of the week will help your grind and more, with events like “How To Get Started In Investing” at Alger Hall teaching you the ins and outs of financial independence or “Top 10 Career Benefits of Living a Bilingual Life” in the Student Union on Tuesday, and Wednesday bringing “Social Work Career Day” to Alger Hall and “Career Passions, Side Hustles, and One Rhode Islander’s Take on the American Dream” to Gaige Hall.

Perhaps you feel like channeling your inner artist instead? Thursday will usher in events such as “Chalk the Quad,” “Beginner Ukulele,” “DIY Dream Board” and “Paint Your Heart Out.” For those looking to break that midterm stress, next week will bring “Tai Chi and Qi Gong” and “Barn Babies” to the Quad, and RIC’s annual “Spring Fest” featuring music, refreshments and even a rock wall.

Of course, this only scratches the surface of events hitting campus the coming week and beyond. To learn of every opportunity coming up, visit the RIC Student Activities Instagram page, and of course, don’t forget to usher in that Anchor spirit.
