Class Councils – Spring 2013

The Freshman Class Council participated in service events such as The Christina Flood Fundraising Dinner. They also organized social events aiming to provide recreation for students on campus. In March which included a basketball tournament open to all Duquesne students.

The Sophomore Class Council had their council Christmas dinner in January (due to scheduling conflicts in December). The Council also organized sold out events which included a trip to Hidden Valley for skiing and a “whirlwind bus trip” to New York City. The Council helped with the Christina Flood Fundraising spaghetti dinner, made final contributions to the Adopt a classroom program, held a fundraiser for the Father Hogan Legacy fund, and organized a Pirate Baseball game in April. They are also collaborating with the Freshmen Class Council to host an “end of the year” picnic/ice cream social on Assumption Lawn.

The Junior Class Council has had a busy spring. The Council helped coordinate the benefit dinner for Christina Flood Fundraising to help Christina with her medical expenses. They are putting a team together for a Relay for Life (they are still taking team members) and have a day trip planned to D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival.

The Senior Class Council had fun planning a successful wine tasting event and assisted with the coordination of the Graduation Fair in February.

All Class Councils held elections for next year and participated in the Installation Mass and Brunch.
