November 5th-9th, 2018 the AAU community came together to participate in the annual Spirit Week events organized by Student Council.
Students, alumni, faculty, and staff participated in #AAUSpiritWeek. Run by the university's Student Council, the students not only livened up the campus but also the university social media by covering all the events in a one-week student Instagram takeover. From bowling and movie nights to a quirky Twin Day, here is a full breakdown of the fun:
November 5th: International Food Day
With over 70 nationalities represented among AAU's student body, International Food Day was surely the most diverse and delicious day of the week. Students prepared dishes from their home countries for everyone to share. Among them were Costa Rica, Ecuador, Czech Republic, Spain, Georgia, France, and the winner of the “Most Popular Dish of the Day” award, Korea!
November 6th: Bowling Night
On Tuesday evening Student Council organized a trip for our students to have some fun outside of the AAU campus. Those who signed up got to enjoy free entry for a heated bowling match!
November 7th: Twin Day
Wednesday the fun returned to campus where students, faculty, and staff were encouraged to find a friend and dress alike for the whole day! The competition was stiff with even our Cafe Des Taxis staff and a few of our Vice Presidents taking on the matching challenge. The photos of each pair were posted on Instagram for the whole community to vote for a winner. In the end, the Red Twins took the prize for the best outfit, but hey there’s always next year!
November 8th: Movie Night
On Thursday the no eating in the library rules were lifted for an evening of snacks, drinks, and scary movies. Those who were brave enough came for a screening of the horror classic, ‘The Shining’ in the cozy AAU Library.
November 9th: Homecoming Party
And what better way to end a week of fun than with a party? Cafe Des Taxis had a full house of students playing games and taking advantage of the special deals just for our students on food, snacks, and drinks all evening long.
If you missed out on the action, never fear Instagram highlights are always here! Relive the fun by heading to AAU's Instagram Page to watch the official Spirit Week highlight or visit the AAU Student Council's official Facebook Page to see full photo albums from each event!
