The tower of power

Running, screaming, and competitive games had about 70 students high on adrenaline Friday during the Tower of Power event in High Rise.

Co-sponsored by Resident Life Association and The Big Event, the Tower of Power brought students to all 11 floors of High Rise to compete and become the first to finish the tower and sign-up in the Gold Room for The Big Event on April 25. The Big Event at Chadron State is a community service event that allows the college students to give back to Chadron’s community and businesses.

Each floor of High Rise allowed students to compete against each other in order to advance to the next floor. Games ranging from tic-tac-toe, rock-paper-scissors, corn hole, and many others were placed from second floor to the top.

Once each participant reached the 11th floor, they received a paper crown and were sent back down to the Gold Room. There, they were encouraged to sign up for The Big Event if they hadn’t already, and could relax, eat, and win prizes.

As of Friday, over 450 volunteers had signed up for The Big Event. Students can continue to sign up through April 1.
