Campus to celebrate diversity at Unity Fest April 7
At the second annual Unity Fest on April 7, the Radford University community will celebrate its tradition of diversity and inclusion.
The student-organized festival will feature a variety of entertainment activities in the Dedmon Center from 1 to 4 p.m. Unity Fest is free and open to the public.
The event, organizers said, is designed to bring the campus and surrounding communities together. Representatives from several different student organizations will bring together a diverse mix of activities for all ages to enjoy.
The Unity Fest committee is composed of students from the Student Government Association (SGA), Residential Hall Association, Greek Life, Diversity Awareness Programming, Black Student Alliance, Spectrum, Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Radford Student Programming and Campus Events.
“Campus departments such as Dining Services, Facilities Management, University Services and the Offices of Student Affairs have also been very supportive of our efforts as well as the Student Finance Committee,” said SGA President Julianne Stanley, who added: "We hope this festival helps build a sense of togetherness for the Radford community."
Stanley said the daylong festival will feature food trucks, a DJ, live performances by a wide range of different performers, games and activities for all ages.
