Don’t sing it, bring it
The “Karaoke and Coffee” event attracted fifty-four people showed up at Edna Work Hall lobby Friday night from 9 p.m. to midnight.
The Resident Life Association (RLA) event gave students a chance to relax and win some prizes, including Starbucks quality coffee, vacuum insulated cups, and a Keurig coffee maker. The resident assistants drew a name for small prizes once in a while, around every 30 minutes.
All they had to do was sing and wait for the resident assistants to call their names if they were lucky. The special prize, a Keurig coffee maker, was for those who sang and stayed until midnight.
During the night, people signed up for the song they want. Some went solo, some sang in groups. The diversity of songs, from sad to cheerful, encouraged more people to show their music preference.
According to Alisha Heelan, senior of Lewellen, the purpose of RLA events is to have fun and create a community within Chadron State College. “And have opportunities for people come, meet people, and be silly, just relax,” she said.
People showed up to enjoy quality time with friends. Makenzy Petty, sophomore of Belle Fourche, South Dakota, chose “Honey, I’m Good” by Andy Grammer to heat up the night. “I didn’t think it was going to have this much fun but it’s actually a lot better,” she said, “I won a red Husker coffee mug.”
The RLA events take place every week, and fliers are available in every building on the CSC campus.
