On April 16, Benjamin Underwood as the assistant coordinator of the Thursday University Center weekly events at St. Mary’s University, created an event for students, originally a pub night, Oyster Bake Skip Day. Because classes where cancelled that day, Underwood had the opportunity to expand the event providing free food, live music, a photo booth and games. Underwood mentions that these events have been successful because they’ve brought over 100 students since they first started three semesters ago.
