Students gathered in Shipppensburg University’s Ceddia Union Building’s (CUB) multi-purpose room (MPR) to spend the night stuffing teddy bears to add to their stuffed animal collection and tie-dye shirts on March 20.
A line wrapped around the first floor as students waited to create their own teddy bear in a “Build-A-Bear”-inspired style. Students were given the choice between six different animals to stuff ranging from giraffes to pandas.
The Activities Program Board (APB) made sure participants followed the campus COVID-19 coronavirus safety regulations by distancing a certain amount of participants to different stuffing stations and tie-dye tables.
Each stuffing table contained mountains of white polyester material, a pink and purple heart to give the teddy bears “life” and a birth certificate so students could give their stuffed animals a name and a birthdate.
The event was a nice breather for students as many prepared to use the weekend to study for their upcoming midterms.
