Students, faculty and staff are invited for strawberry shortcake and sundaes, music, games and raffles. A free two-mile Strawberry Fun Run and Walk will begin at noon with onsite registration at 11:30 a.m. on the Quad. There will be prizes and giveaways galore.

A campus “trade show” will feature information tables staffed by SU departments. Grilled hamburgers, hotdogs and veggie burgers will be available for purchase.
