Troy University’s Students for Social Justice will host an end-of-the-semester water balloon fight to raise money from Amnesty International on April 28.
Students for Social Justice holds meetings every Tuesday night at 5 p.m. which include discussion concerning human rights issues locally, nationally and internationally.
“Events we have held include a movie night, board game night, a campus poll on issues concerning students, and political forum with Eric Wright and Joel Williams,” said Trey Tallant, a junior anthropology major from Grady and president of Students for Social Justice.
“Other topics of concern have been that representation within the SGA has been far from representative of the total student population, consisting almost entirely of those involved in fraternities and sororities.”
The water balloon fight will be open to all Troy University students for an admission price of $2 a person. Half of all proceeds will go to Amnesty International.
Students for Social Justice will have 2,000 water balloons available, and Tallant encourages all students to arrive early to get more water balloons.
“We encourage people to bring water guns if they have them,” said Tallant.
“The event will begin at 5 p.m., and the actual water balloon fight will start at 5:15,” said Tallant, “We expect it to go on until around 5:45.”
