The Happening Returns to the VSU Front Lawn Aug. 24

VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University will host The Happening 2017 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 24, on the front lawn.

“Blazer Nation looks forward to The Happening every fall, and we expect thousands of students to attend,” said Dr. Vincent Miller, vice president for student affairs. “This is a very special, once-a-year tradition at VSU, one that introduces new and returning students to the wonderful opportunities offered by our community and our university.”

Sponsored by VSU’s Office of Student Life, The Happening is an opportunity for students to have fun in the South Georgia outdoors while learning more about what the university and the surrounding community have to offer them.

The Happening is also an opportunity for on-campus organizations, programs, offices, and departments and off-campus businesses, religious organizations, nonprofits, and civic groups to introduce and market themselves to thousands of students, face to face, at one time, in one location.

The 26th annual event promises to be bigger and better than The Happening 2016, which boasted more than 300 exhibitors. The information fair is always a big hit with the thousands of students enrolled at VSU.
