SAC to sponsor expanded shuttle service to Newport

Xavier will hold its fourth annual Luck on the Levee on March 13, giving students an alternative way to de-stress around this time of year.

Luck on the Levee is an event organizers hope will provide Xavier students with an alternative activity around St. Patrick’s Day. From 6 to 11 p.m. on Thursday, all Xavier students will be given the opportunity to ride to or from Newport on the Levee at thirty-minute intervals.

The event is being sponsored by Student Activities Council (SAC). Representatives from SAC will be offering a special deal to students on Wednesday in Gallagher Student Center (GSC).

Dustin Lewis, associate director of Student Involvement at Xavier, spoke about the benefits of being one of the first 90 students to buy a special ticket.

The tickets sold on Wednesday will provide students with a free movie voucher to the AMC theater in Newport as well as a gift card for $10 worth of food.

“Basically, for $5, the first ninety people to buy these tickets starting Wednesday in the GSC will receive $20,” Lewis said.

Any student can come and enjoy Luck on the Levee throughout the evening since the shuttles are free. But, for those interested in a way to make their money last throughout the night, 90 tickets will be available starting on March 12.
