SIU Hosts Free Family Carnival
JACKSON CO. -- SIU families got to enjoy a special day of fun activities.
Saturday afternoon was filled with games and prizes for those who made it out to Saluki Pride. The carnival is free and geared toward SIU students, faculty, and staff with children.
Organizers say it's a great way to let families get to know the campus and community.
"It's kind of a a one stop shop," said Associate Director of Programs. "Our folks can come in and bring their kids. There's usually activities, but each of our booths has some resources for people to become familiar with the different programs, services, and activities that are available here on campus."
The Recreation Center holds the carnival at the start of each semester.
