As a welcome back to new and returning students, RHA, Student Activities and Center for Excellence and Inclusion sponsored a Glow Party on Jan. 23 in the REC center.
“This was a great way to start my semester here at LHU. Being able to get to know and meet new friends, and a free t-shirt! What college student doesn’t like free stuff?” Mentioned Shamaar Vancol a freshman majoring in Political Science. The first 300 students were given a t-shirt which read ‘Keep Calm and Glow On’.
The rec center was transformed into a black light party, full of games, prizes and food. The prizes that students had a chance to win were a TV, an iPad, some gift cards to Weis and more!
Sam Shirk, a Senior studying Communication, attended the glow party and said, “The LHU Glow Party was one of the most interesting experiences I’ve had in my college career. It was pretty neat seeing the amount of work RHA can put into an event, between the lights, music and mini golf – I had a blast!”
Some activities there included mini golf, water pong, Mario Kart and a photo booth. There were black lights all over the golf course making the golf balls and the courses glow. Water pong was a crowd favorite with a line of students waiting to play almost the whole night.
Along with the activities there was a DJ playing songs like Cotton Eye Joe, Cha Cha Slide, Uptown Funk, Apple Bottom Jeans and more.
There was also a station set up for students to get glow paint painted on themselves, so they could glow as well. Students were also able to make glasses out of glow sticks, or just regular glow necklaces.
Look forward to more events like this one during the semester and be sure to check you e-mail from Student Activities to be notified when the events are.
