Looking for a fun way to get involved in the campus community and show off your Ship pride? Sophomore political science major Regina Yeung recommends jumping into the Red Sea!
“The Red Sea is a student group on campus that organizes the student sections at athletic events to show our school pride. We go to at least one game of each sport on campus to show our support,” said Yeung.
The Red Sea is not new to Ship but it is growing. With nearly 90 members, the group is averaging 20-30 students at athletic events sporting their red Ship gear, face painting, pom-poms and a whole lot of Ship love.
“My favorite part of being in the Red Sea are the friends I’ve made through it,” explained Yeung.
This semester Yeung and her friends are collaborating with different organizations including the SU Marching Band and Cheerleaders to expand the impact of their rather noticeable presence at athletic events.
“This year we are organizing a “Pink Out” to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer on Saturday, October 9 since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” she explained.
The Red Sea will turn pink for the day during the October 9 football game at Seth Grove Stadium and anyone can join the cause, or the Red Sea. Students can get involved simply by showing up and Yeung says they can expect a spirited welcome!
“I love Ship because of the people and the ever-so-welcoming community. We truly are one big Ship family and I’m thankful to call a place like this home,” she said.
