The Women’s Resource Center hosted Grrrls Night with free donuts and drinks in celebration of Galentine’s Day.
Grrrls Night is a bi-monthly event created to bring a positive and open space for students who identify as womxn to discuss current events, raise awareness, educate and establish friendships.
“I had a lot of fun getting to meet new friends and catching up with old one, and I enjoyed playing the scavenger hunt quiz to win the $20 gift card from Starbucks” fourth-year liberal studies student Kimberly Flores said.
The event began with several activities beginning with a scratch card game.
Student’s who got the card that read “bling,” won a $10 gift card to Starbucks.
The next activity included a game called, What’s on Your phone? Students who got the most points won a $20 gift card from to Starbucks.
Students were able to continue earning points towards the card game if they held certain items.
Points were gained by having contact names in your phone that begin with a G, social media applications, selfies taken in the month of February, a photo with the hostess, no unread emails, your ring tone as a song and if they have already posted a photo from the event on social media.
“I enjoyed the social interaction and being able to have a distraction from exams and projects,” fourth-year liberal studies student Lauren Ingram said.
“I recommend students come to this event because this is a great place to meet new friends that might share the same experiences being a student at CPP.”
Students attending the event have become inspired to meet you people and gain confidence in expressing themselves to others.
Leaders of Grrrls Night look forward to encouraging students to gain their self-confidence, and empower them to reach success.
“I think everyone should experience Grrrls Night at least once during their time at CPP, because it gives students a chance to form community with like-minded individuals in a casual environment,” fourth year ethnic and women’s studies student and social justice leader of the Women’s Resource Center Jillian Furiga said.
Furiga says it’s great to see other Womxn come together to socialize and to learn something new.
Grrrls Night is hosted every other Thursday in the Women’s Resource Center in building 95.
