CSC students got a chance, Thursday, April 14, to get in touch with their artistic sides. Late Night at The Pit sponsored an arts and crafts night which gave students the chance to paint on things like snow globes, canvases and coffee mugs.
The event was far different from the usual dance and was meant to appeal to a different group of students to help them feel involved on campus. With no music being played, it made the event a good way for students to relax as finals approach rapidly. The event started at 9 p.m. and ended around midnight and had students there throughout the duration.
“It’s nice to mix it up sometimes and do something that might appeal to a different group of people on campus,” The Pit staff member, Savannah Hurtado, sophomore of Denver, said.
The event, however, did offer prizes to entice more students to come and once they got there they were offered food and refreshments in case they were hungry.
“It’s one of our smaller events but we were very excited about our turnout and it was an overall fun event,” another staff member, Savannah Menghini, sophomore of Scottsbluff said.
The event had around 30 people show up even though Thursday had bad weather, which may have deterred some students from leaving their houses or the dorms.
“The event went well. There was bad weather however students still came out and participated. We had about 30 plus students show up to do crafts. The event overall went very good, they were very engaged. We will be doing craft night in the future,” Karl McFarlane, student affairs graduate assistant and head member of The Pit, said.
