Your connection to the activities, events and all around good times offered by Student Life


by Brian Roberts on September 15, 2014 in Coming Soon, Events

Where were you at 3pm on Saturday, September 6th 2014? If you are a real VSU Blazer, than you were at the inaugural student tailgate happening at the corner of Brookwood Drive and Slater Street. For 4 hours, that grassy lot became host to one of the greatest outpouring of Blazer pride that this member of the VSU family has ever seen. Student tailgating has finally come to Valdosta State and it. was. AWESOME! Over the summer, members of Athletics, the Dean of Students and Student Life formed a group to increase student participation and support at football games this fall. After researching what other schools do at their Athletic events, it was decided that we needed a designated student tailgate, something like The Grove at Ole Miss or Texas A&M Kingsville. 


It was decided that VSU would provide the space and the musicIMG_1568but the students would provide the fun. The lot (which has yet to be named) can fit approximately 80- 10’x20′ spaces, which students can reserve to bring tents, tables, tv’s, grills, couches or anything else that will fit.

The next football game is this Saturday, September 20th vs. Delta State. Help us turn this into

The Happening Definitely Happened

by Brian Roberts on September 2, 2014 in Events, Information, Just Happened

This year marked the 23rd annual “Happening” at VSU and with 325 registered student organizations, VSU departments and business/community groups, it was the biggest and baddest one yet. If you’re not familiar with the Happening, it is an information fair that takes place on the Font Lawn every year to help new students acclimate to all of the various opportunities available to them both on and off campus.

Other than the extreme heat (which has become as much a tradition as the event itself) the day was one filled with free food, free stuff, and free fun. This event, which was once held on Palms Quad (picture that, if you will…) has grown to become the the largest attended event at Valdosta State and continues to grow each year.

See what it’s like with the Drones Eye-View.

We even made the local news…ballin’!
