Ohio University Eastern hosts 'College Craze' for area students

ATHENS, Ohio (May 2, 2006) -- Ohio University Eastern (OUE) will present "College Craze" on Friday, May 5,  from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Robert W. Ney Center.  This event will allow area college students to meet their peers in a safe, friendly and alcohol-free environment.

The Ohio University Eastern Student Senate is sponsoring this all-college event.  The evening's entertainment will be provided by Sounds of Satisfaction who will present a music and light show.  Members of the Ohio Valley Greyhounds and Steubenville Stampede will make special appearances throughout the evening.

"I'm really pleased that the Eastern Campus is offering more student activities," said Zach Thuring, OUE Student Senate president. "The Student Senate has worked hard to put this dance together, and I'm sure that there will be a great turnout."

Area college students from Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania are invited to attend this event.  All students must present a valid college-issued photo I.D., or an official class schedule which can be cross-referenced with a state issued photo I.D.

"Our Student Senate wanted the opportunity to bring students from all Ohio University campuses together and decided to further extend that invitation to local college students," said Kristen Burrier, recruitment coordinator and academic advisor at the Ohio University Eastern Campus. "This is a wonderful opportunity for area college students to wind down the academic year, meet new people, and enjoy fellowship with their counterparts at area colleges."

The price of admission is $4 in advance or $6 at the door.  Students wearing their college's colors and logos will be admitted at the door for $5.  Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Ohio University Eastern Campus.  For more information, call 1-800-648-3331.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the American Cancer Society.
