Members of the Marywood Community attended Student Activities Crew’s (SAC) first ever Petting Zoo on Sept. 15 in the Art Field, located outside of the Insalaco Center for Studio Arts.

The Petting Zoo had sheep, chickens, bunnies, goats, a donkey, and a mini alpaca from the Sleepy Hollow Farm. SAC also offered free Rita’s Italian ice, cookies, and lemonade at four hour event.

SAC intern Rachel James, a senior criminal justice and sociology double major, planned the event.

“I really hope people enjoy [this event],” James said. The event lasted from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m so people could visit in between classes.

“SAC tries to plan events everyone, both residents and commuters, can come to,” James said. If it rained, the animals would have relocated to the Latour Room in Nazareth Hall.

 Many students enjoyed the farm animals.

“I love SAC events and animals, so this is the best of both worlds; SAC should do this more often,” said sophomore Kayle Huey, a childhood special education major.

Students from the SOAR Program also attended the Petting Zoo.

 “Our kids thoroughly are enjoying this. It’s really wonderful,” said Lisa Walters, SOAR’s program assistant.

Rebeckah Marsh, a senior and early childhood education major, agreed.

“I love farm animals; this is so one of the best things SAC has planned.”
