The Valley College community was treated to a day of fun and games when the Associated Student Union was host to Monarch Square’s final club day of the spring semester last week, in which the Career/Transfer Center reminded students to register for the fall.
Complimentary food and refreshments were offered to everyone who attended, along with an afternoon filled with various activities.
“It’s spirit day, an end-of-the-year party,” said ASU Commissioner of Athletics George Markarian. “We have more of a party theme today.”
Since the purpose of the afternoon was to have a huge party, all clubs participating in the event were encouraged to have games at their stations available for club day attendees.
The dance club was host to a hip-hop dance competition where six members faced off in the middle of Monarch Square and started what became a very intense dance battle. The winner, who was chosen by the audience, was awarded with an iTunes gift card.
The dance battle was not the only event that promoted physical activity: the Active Club was host to several games, which included a quarterback toss, star darts and a ring toss. Any of the attendees who decided to try their luck with the games were awarded with an unlimited amount of attempts and free candy.
“This is a great way to get people involved,” said Gabriel Ayon, the president of the Political Action Coalition. “We do things like this to get people to come out and interact with everyone else.”
In addition to the different clubs that came out to show support on spirit day, Valley’s Career/Transfer Center had a station of its own.
The Counseling office also had one of its representatives, counselor Michael Gold, give information to students who had questions.
“I think any chance we get to do outreach to students we like to take advantage of it,” said Gold. “This is an organized day when people are available and students know to come to the tables to ask questions.”
Along with notifying students about the cancellation of the summer session, Gold reminded students to register for the fall semester and stressed the importance of making student plans.
“This is a great day to remind students of the changes that are happening,” said Gold. “I think if we just randomly did this, we would not get the same response.”
