Strobe lights and lasers flashed to the beat of loud music as students participated in “Cosmic Mini Golf” last night. The Student Programming Association and the Electric Dance Music Club hosted the event, which was held at 7 p.m. in the HUB-Robeson Center’s Alumni Hall.
“We’re working with EDMC to try and get a bit more of a fun edge,” Heather Maggi, SPA’s entertainment chair, said.
Maggi said it was good to see people waiting when the doors were opened.
“It’s pretty crazy, the lights are flashing and everything is glowing,” said Julie
Walter. “It’s really exciting.”
Cameron Dunbar said that holographic glasses were handed out, which made the lights pop and planets float from pieces of the golf course set.
“I wasn’t expecting them to be able to transform Alumni Hall, but with the 3D it turned out really cool,” Laura McAndrews said.
McAndrews (freshmen- environmental systems engineering) said she liked that there were other things to do at the event besides golf.
“You can dance while you play mini golf, we’ve got popcorn, and our little Colbie Caillat cutout you can take pictures with,” Maggi (senior – film and video)said.
Dunbar (senior-psychology) said that he thought the event was well-planned, citing the coat check as an aspect he found to be a good idea.
Walter (freshmen-undecided) said she thought the addition of lights and music made the activity of mini golf more appealing to college students.
“I like how it’s a combo because put-put is just like goofing around and it adds to the fun,” Walter said.
McAndrews said she thought the event brought students back to their childhood.
“People are always trying to get back something from childhood and I think this is a good idea,” Kris Rogers said.
“Who doesn’t love mini golf,” Rogers (sophomore-broadcast journalism) said.
