Sunday, Feb. 7 – Super Bowl Party

6 to 8 p.m. in the Cardinal Club

6:30 p.m. – Game starts – Watch virtually! 

Watch the Super Bowl with the Cardinal community. Although we cannot gather together to watch the game in a large group, SAC still wants everyone to have a great time. The Cardinal Club will have FREE FOOD for all students to grab before virtually watching the Super Bowl. You will have the choice of a hotdog, cheese curd basket, onion ring basket, or nachos (chicken or beef). Each food item comes with a free cooler drink. Check out SAC’s Instagram @smumnsac for different ways to stream the Super Bowl. While you grab your food, you will also have the opportunity to guess which team will win for a winner’s raffle! The President’s Cabinet has graciously donated over 10 different gift cards to raffle off to those who predict correctly!

Monday, Feb. 8 – Pizza and Plan Meeting
