Second-Annual Mr. SU a Success
Susquehanna’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted its second-annual Mr. SU Contest on March 22 and the event was a rousing success, as SAAC raised $500 for the Special Olympics, the Landmark Conference’s charity of choice.
Nine male student-athletes from a variety of sports competed in three different events: talent, school spirit, formal wear/pickup line. After the judges deliberated, the top five finalists were chosen. The finalists then answered a randomly selected question before the winner was announced.
Senior Bobby Eppleman, a multi-sport athlete, won the overall Mr. SU title. Other winners included baseball teammates Calvin Hug and Matt Lottes (talent), who performed an Irish dance complete with costume; B.J. Merriam (school spirit) and Logan Skillman (formal wear/pick-up line).

Second-Annual Crusader Carvings
On October 24, 2010 the Susquehanna University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee held its second annual Halloween Crusader Carvings event for the children in the Selinsgrove Community. Children from the Selinsgrove Community came out to enjoy a fun day carving and painting pumpkins, face painting, and games at Nicholas A. Lopardo Stadium. Athletes from every Susquehanna team came out to make sure that each and every kid had a fun day and could take an awesome looking pumpkin home for Halloween. The Susquehanna University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee would like to thank all of those sponsors that donated to help with the event, such as Papa Johns, Ards Farm, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Weis Markets, Dunkin Doughnuts, Aramark Dining Services, and Giant.

Alumni, parents, kids, and current students took a look through and could enjoy seeing their old jerseys or just having a piece of Susquehanna memorabilia. Along with purchasing uniforms from past Susquehanna Athletic Teams, BAM BAMs or noisemakers were given out for free to help support the Susquehanna Football Team on Homecoming.
