SGA looks forward to new events as Mud Bowl passes by.  

Mud Bowl occurred on September 29, and APSU students enjoyed competing in teams for volleyball in the mud, sponsored by the SGA. 

The Student Government Association introduced Mud Bowl in 2002. Every fall, student teams compete in volleyball in the mud. The Mud Bowl uses tarp surrounded by bales of straw, filled with tons of murky dirt and water.  

The event is student-run and overseen by the SGA Chief Justice. This year that is Jake Kolaski. 

According to the SGA APSU webpage, “The Mud Bowl Executive Committee provides the vision and direction for the event, as well as leading their individual committees to ensure that Mud Bowl is a success.” 

Moving forward, SGA looks towards future events such as G.H.O.S.T. or Greater Halloween Options for Trick or Treating. G.H.O.S.T. is a longstanding tradition at APSU historically sponsored by the SGA.  

“Although it was originally intended for the children of APSU students, faculty and staff, G.H.O.S.T. has expanded to welcome families from the local community,” the SGA APSU webpage says. “APSU clubs and organizations, as well as groups from the community, dress up, hand out candy, and play games with children from Clarksville and the surrounding area.” 

G.H.O.S.T. occurs Sunday, October 27 from 4-7 p.m. in the U.C. plaza and interior of campus.  

In recent SGA meetings, President Sydney Hawkins also reminded senators that Homecoming 2019 is also approaching. 

Homecoming occurs from November 4 to November 9 and includes such events as the NPHC Homecoming Step Show, 15th Annual Gov’s Got Talent, the 74th Annual Homecoming Parade and the SGA T-Shirt Giveaway among many others. 

As the semester continues senators and students alike should keep abreast of all the events that are still yet to come.
