On September 8th, we hosted our second party down in the Student Lounge. We would like to thank all of the students and our readers who stopped by and grabbed a drink with us along with this year’s SGA candidates!
During the party we had an announcement where we talked about our future plans regarding the responses we gathered for our Gaming Tournament Questionnaire over a couple of months. %71 of the participants stated that they would consider participating in a gaming tournament hosted on campus. %34 of the participants stated that they would be interested in board games, %29 sports games, and %21 card games. We will bring these numbers up to the Student Life Department to come up with a fun and entertaining plan for a future gaming tournament and keep you, our readers, updated as we always do.
Before we handed the microphone over to the SGA candidates who participated in our party to introduce themselves in the crowd, we presented the prizes to the winners of our August Treasure Hunt contest.
Winners of our August Treasure Hunt:
Pallavi Saitu | Ariba Hasan | Ashish Ashtute
In addition to these announcements, we would also like to let our readers know that we are planning of hosting recurring hiking events as well as annual trips to touristic destinations within the city. We will share more details with you soon!
