I Heart SV Week kicks off

Forever Red is gearing up for its sixth annual I Heart SV Week, beginning Feb. 10, with the goal to raise money for student scholarships and celebrate Red Pride.

Sabrina Mirabile, the vice president of the RSO’s enhance pillar, said I Heart SV Week is a great time to share love for SVSU.

“I Heart SV Week is a week-long fundraising event where Forever Red raises money for (its) scholarships as well as puts on events to share our love for SVSU,” she said. “Students should look forward to sharing their love for SVSU by attending our awesome events.”

The money raised contributes to student scholarships, and students can apply for one of five Forever Red scholarships until Feb. 20, Mirabile said.

She added that Forever Red will be holding table sits throughout the week to sell SVSU memorabilia.

“We will be selling stickers for $1, old I Heart SV long-sleeve shirts and other Forever Red swag,” she said. “Table sits will be Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside the library and the Marketplace.”

Other events during the week include a Family Feud game night, the 5 Under 5 Alumni panel, Coop’s Birthday and Advising After Dark.

Mirabile said the 5 Under 5 Alumni panel was the most important event of the week.

“5 Under 5 [is] where five alumni, one from each academic college, who have graduated in the past five years come back to tell his or her SVSU story, network and answer questions,” she said. “We really want this to be the largest event because we are inviting alumni to come back and give us their precious time.”

This year’s panelists are Cody Alberts from the College of Arts and Behavioral Sciences, Samantha Bedore from the College of Business and Management, Cameron Belavek from the College of Science, Engineering and Technology, Rosalie Brege from the College of Education and Chelsea Brown from the College of Health and Human Services.

The event is slated for Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. in C223 and will offer free pizza, pop and raffles.

Mirabile recommended students interested in Forever Red email svsufr@svsu.edu and be on the look out for the week’s featured events, sales and posters.
