The Office of Student Activities oversees the operation of the Bertelsmann Campus Center and works with students to develop weekly activities and programs. The office also provides support to student government and campus clubs. Student Activities offers a Thursday Night Live series in Down the Road Café, large scale campus events each month, as well as annual traditions such as Welcome Back Weekend, Urban Cowboy, Spring Fling, and many more. The Student Publicity and Activities Resource Center (SPARC) is also located within Student Activities and provides logistical support for all student-run events on campus.  Consult with SPARC about registration procedures for all events (also see the Events Registration section in Chapter 5 of this handbook).
