The Social Warrior Activities Team (S.W.A.T.) seeks to provide entertainment for the Waldorf University community. S.W.A.T. brings events such as comedians, coffeehouse artists; de-stress day programming, novelty acts and other various speakers and artists to the Waldorf campus.
S.W.A.T. encourages students to attend each event as well as become involved with planning future artists. The club holds meetings for general members every first Wednesday of the month in the Anna Marie Mitchell Room in the Campus Center. Students can get involved in many ways with S.W.A.T. including hospitality, advertising and attending the programs of the artists while they are at Waldorf. We encourage you to keep an eye out on campus for future events!

What We Do
We do a lot to prepare for on-campus events. Below is a brief timeline to show the work that goes into planning:
- Screen entertainment options
- Choose entertainment
- Work with agents to figure out details
- Plan hospitality (hotel and meals)
- Plan event (time, food, decorations)
- Publicize event
- Take out artist/performer
- Enjoy entertainment!
S.W.A.T. is open to all interested students. There is no sign-up process to become a member, just join us the first Wednesday of every month in the Anna Marie Mitchell Room. Leadership roles are determined once a year by nominations and voting of members.
All S.W.A.T. events are free and open to the Waldorf University community. They are a great way to try new things with a minimal financial obligation–many of these shows would cost between $15-100 off campus!
By getting involved on campus, you are more likely to succeed as a college student. Studies show that the best way for a student to achieve high grades is to become involved with campus activities. By doing this, a student learns real-life experience: how to manage time, how to deal with other people, executing ideas, etc. Not only does involvement in organizations and activities help a student to grow as an individual, it also helps you to steer clear of many college-associated problems such as drinking, drugs and other high-risk choices.
