Student activities and programs held the first annual “Eat Your Art” event welcoming all students who wanted to be creative with pastries.
Tables filled with cookies, fruits and a variety of toppings that caught the eye of many students who walked by the Bronco Student Center, Eridanus Lounge Thursday, Feb. 1 during U-hour.
“I like to create fun and interactive events for the campus community where they have an opportunity to express themselves creatively,” fourth-year business student and member of Associated Students Incorporated art program Philine Tran said.
Students stood in a long line patiently waiting for their turn in the creative event.
“I haven’t baked or decorated anything in ages,” first-year landscape architect student Tara Nikanjam said.
“I made a tiny cookie and named her ‘Beepus,’ she’s a lady with a French mustache who doesn’t know whether or not she wants to be a boy or girl, this is delicious.”
Nikanjam expressed her excitement for any upcoming events that include free food.
“They use their imagination to make whatever they want,” fourth-year apparel merchandizing and management student and member of the Bronco Events and Activities Team programming chair Izabella Latrach said.
SAP strategically planned this event to be held during U-hour for students to stop by and take a break from all the midterm chaos.
This is the first year for ‘Eat Your Art,’ and the coordinators are willing to host another one if the feedback was positive from the students.
SAP plans more university driven events and work with ASI Art Acquisition Committee every year for the ASI Art Program, where students are given an opportunity to display their art through short-term exhibits in the Bronco Exhibit Gallery.
ASI does not stop the fun there as they also have a full calendar with many events including ‘Noche de Salsa’ coming Friday, Feb.9, in the BSC, URSA Major where students can learn to dance bachata and salsa, and free food will be served.
Tran expressed if anyone is interesting in being apart of BEAT, there is an upcoming BEAT volunteer meeting Thursday, Feb.22 from noon to 1 p.m. in the BSC, England Evans suite.
Free lunch will be provided to everyone who comes to learn about BEAT.
“The goal was to have people interact with us on campus, like build friendship, and have some food to eat at U-hour,” Latrach said.
