This semester, SUBOG plans to step out of their comfort zone with a variety of events, according to SUBOG President Addie Lotito.
“We know, realistically, that individual events aren’t for everyone,” Lotito said. “Our goal is to provide enough events that are different so that every student feels there was an opportunity for them to have fun and engage with SUBOG.”
The schedule is set to include traditional events like weekly movies, the Food Truck Festival and One Ton Sunday, according to Lotito.
We have so much planned from concert, movie and sports travel trips to homecoming events, lectures and open mics,” Lotito said. “As always, our weekly movies are running every Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the SU Theater.”
There are also still tickets on sale for the Yankees Travel Trip scheduled for Sept. 2 at subog.uconn.edu, according to Lotito.
“We are also doing an Open House for students to learn more about each of our committees (and stuff huskies!) on Oct. 1 in the SU Ballroom from 12 to 3 p.m.,” Lotito said. “We also have fall concert updates and announcements coming soon! Stay tuned!”
The SUBOG mission also includes hosting educational and cultural events, but in the past these types of events have been harder to put on than social and entertainment events, according to Lotito.
“SUBOG’s goal this year in its entirety is to push the boundaries on the type of events we usually put on on campus,” Lotito said. “Our mission includes hosting educational and cultural events but that is something we often miss in our programming because it’s easier to put on fun/social/entertaining events. We’re trying to step out of our comfort zone this year and provide students with events that push them out of their own comfort zones and hopefully allow students to learn something new or have a new and different experience.”
SUBOG also encourages student input and hopes to provide more opportunities for students to share their opinions, according to Lotito.
“We have so much fun planning events and we love to see new faces at our meetings,” Lotito said. “As always, feel free to reach out with questions at email@example.com or DM us on Instagram @SUBOGatUCONN.”
