CARBONDALE, Ill. (KFVS) - Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Saluki Spirit Week is set for March 14-20.

Planned events include a “Bob Ross” Saluki-style painting class, a prize hunt, string art and crafts, food trucks, free snow cones and other treats.

On Tuesday, students will complete in the Student Recreation Center gym to see which team can stack the tallest column of crates.

On Wednesday, they can then play The Office Virtual Trivia with Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin on the series.

On Friday night, there will be two sessions of Saluki Spirit Bingo in the Student Center Ballrooms.

SIU revised its spring 2021 semester schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. SIU started classes a week later and replaced spring break with Saluki Spirit Week.

Students can claim a free “I lost my spring break and all I got was this T-shirt” shirts.
