- 61SYX BREAK DANCERS – SEPT. 21ST
61Syx (pronounced like the numbers 616) is coming this fall. Who doesn’t love break dancing? With awesome dance moves and a passion for keeping the art of break dancing alive, this dance crew is perfect for UIU. These guys are something I haven’t seen at UIU yet, and I am really happy to be bringing them to campus.

Hello there, and welcome to the wonderful world of student activities. My name is Caitlyn and I’ll be entertaining you (hopefully) via this blog. I hope this blog will serve as a source of information on what is going on within the student activities council and events.
This is basically what has happened within Student Activities in the Past 1.5 years or so…
As of late spring Term 2010, a small number of students and I looked at the former Student Activities Board (SAB) and noticed the organization was stuck in a rut. We lacked direction, focus, goals, and a number of other things. So we set out to fix them. First we approached our director with our concerns and from there we mapped out a plan for change. By the start of fall 2010 we had fresh leaders, who wanted to change the organization for the better. We got organized, re-wrote our constitution, focused on what exactly student activities should be, and changed our name. It was then that Peacock Entertainment Crew (PEC, pronounced like “peck”) was created.
It all sounds like a walk in the park when summed up in a paragraph, but the road has been pretty hard so far. As we started to put the final touches on what Peacock Entertainment Crew was going to be in the spring of 2011, we had a shift in advisors. While in-between advisors, we held ourselves together with about 7 active members, 5 of which were in officer positions within PEC.
As of right now, the group is in the hands of 3 officers, myself being the president, and we know we have a few promising members waiting to help us this school year.
Over the summer I have worked with our new advisor, TJ Warren, to get the 2012-2012 school year booked. After lots of emails, visits, phone calls and games of phone tag we have a schedule almost finalized.
So, you maybe sort of lost on what exactly PEC does, which is understandable. A lot of what we do is behind the scenes stuff. As you may or may not have noticed, throughout the year comedians, musicians, magicians, and lots of other seemingly random things happen on campus. We bring all of that to you. We choose the acts, promote them, decorate for them, set up, take down and mingle with the performers. It’s always interesting and fun, which may seem surprising because we all assume Fayette, is a dull place to be. Our goal is to make that feeling go away, for at least one night.
In my next entry, you can look forward to a sneak peak at what the year is going to bring.
