Snow Day was held by Recreational (Rec) Sports and ASI from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Commons lawn on Feb. 19.
Students had the option of snowboarding down a long slope, ice skating, and building snowmen on the play field.
Some special features of this year’s event included well-known campus DJ Infinity and a photo booth that gave away tickets for free t-shirts.
This year Rec Sports and ASI partnered with the DEN Food Pantry, which donates food to CSUSB students in need, to increase attendance to the event and help generate canned goods for the pantry and students.
Students were asked to donate canned goods in exchange for something special.
“We donated a ton of canned food and nonperishable items to the den in exchange for free In-n-Out,” said Amanda Flood, the marketing supervisor for the Student Recreation and Fitness Center.
Students were impressed with the events of the day.
Snow Day also featured carnival style booths where students could play games and learn about resources on campus.
The Student Health Center hosted an alcohol awareness booth where students were asked to pour what they thought was a standard drink into a red Solo cup.
“I worked the event last year. There are definitely more people here,” said Sara Garcia, lead peer adviser for the Student Health Center.
