Day's Activities

Appearance by Lobo the Seawolf

Don't miss this opportunity to have your picture taken with Sonoma State University’s mascot!

Photo Contest

The theme is “Perfect Pairings" - as they say, good things come in pairs! Some ideas include food, fun, and friends or anything in pairs! Look through your photos to find some paired possibilities to share!  All photos submitted will be on display in The Kitchens.  For additional entry details please view the 2017 Photo Contest Flyer (pdf). The deadline to submit photos to is Friday, May 19, 2017.

Professional Development and Well-Being Sessions

Sessions will be offered at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., with sign-ups starting at 8:00 a.m. inside The Kitchens.  Please check back soon for a list of sessions!

Door Prize Drawing

NEW THIS YEAR: when completing the required online RSVP, all non-MPP staff will be entered into the door prize drawing. You must RSVP to the event in order to participate in the drawing, as NO drawing tickets will be accepted the day of the event.

The Appreciation Station

Is there someone on campus you are dying to show your appreciation to? Stop by the Appreciation Station to create a special Appreciation-Gram for anyone on campus. HR will deliver the Appreciation-Gram(s) on your behalf on Friday, May 26, 2017. Supplies will be provided, just bring your creativity!

Books, Movies, and Music Swap

Stop by the table outside The Kitchens in the morning to drop off your books, CD’s, and DVD’s and swap them for something that interests you. All items remaining at the end of the day will be donated to a local community organization!
