Sting Break 2022 Seeks Staff and Faculty Volunteers

Primary tabs

The Student Center Programs Council’s (SCPC) annual student appreciation carnival known as Sting Break is coming soon – an event that doesn’t happen without big rides, bigger fun, and most importantly, a big help from campus partners. With plans for this year’s event ramping up, student planners are now recruiting staff and faculty volunteers to help support the tradition and show students their appreciation. This year, Sting Break will take place on Tech Green and the W21 parking lot from 6-10 p.m. on March 31, 2022.  

Since 2007, SCPC has put on Sting Break each year with a different theme but the same crowd-pleasers: free student appreciation with carnival rides, large inflatables, food, music, and giveaways. The experience is even more special to students because of the faculty and staff volunteers who facilitate the activities and distribute the giveaways. These outside-the-classroom opportunities to connect are invaluable to both students and volunteers, with the added bonus that having staff allows SCPC to limit the number of student volunteers needed to put on the event.   

“It’s one of my favorite events each year - it’s nice to see students in a relaxed setting, enjoying the festivities,” says 2022 event Chair Paula Punmaneeluk. “Our volunteers seem to have a lot of fun interacting with students too, so it has been exciting to lead the planning this year to make that happen again!” 

After two years of covid-related challenges, the team behind Sting Break is looking forward to bringing the event closer to the full experience known previously. With the support of Georgia Tech Licensing, SGA, Buzzfunds, and Parents Fund, this year’s event will host 2,500 students in activities spread across Tech Green and the W21 parking lot, all with the theme Sting Break on Deck. Having enough staff and faculty volunteers to facilitate will be critical – those interested in serving as a volunteer should fill out this form to receive more information about volunteer roles and goodies.  

Students will be able to sign up for tickets to Sting Break after Spring Break. Details will be announced on the Student Center Programs Council social media, @GTSCPC and Campus Tickets.
