A.S.A.P. is expanding its horizons to give students more free, on-campus events to attend during the semester. Meghan Cheever, president of A.S.A.P., explained that they have been working to come up with new and different events to bring to campus this year that have not done in the past. So far this semester, A.S.A.P. has hosted a trivia night and glow-in-the-dark mini golf.

These events are part of After Hours. Casey Schute, chair of After Hours, brought the idea to do glow-in-the-dark mini golf to the A.S.A.P. executive board. Schute came across the idea when looking at events other schools have brought to their campuses.

When A.S.A.P. and After Hours plan an event, they contact companies to see what kind of events they have to offer. The company A.S.A.P. worked with on mini golf, Simplified Entertainment, was one they have used for past events.

“This was the first time we ever brought miniature golf to campus. The feedback from students was positive! Nearly every student that commented on the event said we should bring it back again,” said Cheever.

“I personally love mini golfing and throwing in all the glow in the dark and black lights made it even more fun. I did like it during the middle of the week because that’s when my homework load is the most, so it was nice to take a break from everything,” said Trent Rains, junior.

Cheever explained that A.S.A.P. likes to provide mid-week events to allow students to relief the stress of homework or studying and have fun. They were excited that mini golf was an option to bring to campus and knew that it would be well-received by students.

“I had a lot of fun. I like that they had this event during the week because it gave me something fun to do to take a break from focusing on my studies,” said sophomore Lupe Salgado.

Mini golf had a successful turn out for a Wednesday night. The event had an attendance of about 200 students. A.S.A.P. events are typically held on a weekdays and take place once a month.

“We are always open to new ideas but also bringing back things that were successful in the past,” said Schute.

Past events hosted by A.S.A.P. include inflatables in the Huff and movies on the Quad among others. These events have been successful with students in the past, which is why A.S.A.P. likes to bring them back to campus.

“I would like to encourage students to come to our general member meetings every other Monday at 7pm in the tartan room. We would love to hear ideas for events, feedback and more from the student body,” said Cheever.

“Thank you for supporting A.S.A.P. by coming out to events,” said Schute.
