Students Let it Glow at First Friday Event

By Delaney Ferguson

Students gathered at University Park and University Plaza on Friday for Cal Poly Pomona’s Associated Students, Inc.’s first official First Friday event of the quarter: “Let it Glow.”

From 9 p.m. to midnight, students had the opportunity to enjoy the first Friday of the month. Booths included free Italian shaved ice samples, a face painting area hosted by University Housing residential advisors, and a freebie station where ASI passed out glow sticks, water bottles and DIY tutus. In addition to the ASI-hosted booths, there were hip-hop dancers and a DJ playing techno music that brought excitement to the crowd. Students joined in on the dancing with a lot of enthusiasm.

The theme created a glow-in-the-dark atmosphere, complete with neon colors and lighting accents. ASI distributed glow sticks and supplied glow-in-the-dark paint. Students had glow-in-the-dark paint on their bodies from head to toe, and really went all out to show their Bronco spirit.

Johnny Rezendes, a first-year biotechnology student, was ecstatic about being at the event.

“I am really enjoying myself,” said Rezendes. “[I] met some new people. The break dancers are really sweet, and the atmosphere makes for a fun rave-style party scene.”

“Let it Glow” offered an opportunity for students living both on- and off-campus to come together and celebrate the beginning of the fall quarter.
