The End of the World Party 2012 will kickoff at 3 p.m. on Thursday May 3, as the semester comes to an end at Chadron State College.
The event will be near the Math and Science Building. The Nearly Naked Mile will begin at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday. The clothing donations will be at 9 p.m. by the Clock Tower.
Every participant in the race must donate at least one article of clothing for local charity drives, and a free t-shirt will be given for a donation of five or more pieces of clothing.
Sean Munger, 22, senior of Imperial and a main contributor to the event, said that CSC students and community members are welcome to participate in the Nearly Naked Mile.
“Participants should not feel obligated to run or dress skimpily if they do not want to; they can walk the mile if they prefer,” Munger said.
Munger added, “We want people there and want them involved, even if it’s just to watch and laugh at the people running.”
The Nearly Naked Mile will be giving a $100 gift card to the best group costume and two $75 gift cards to the best female costume and the best male costume.
The Foam Party will begin after the race at 9:30 p.m. by the volleyball courts. This party will involve dancing, foam, bonfires, and hot tubs that will be open until 1 a.m.
Munger said he is “hoping for a lot of people to come and participate.”
