The University Student Union welcomed CSUN students back for the semester Thursday with their Spring Kickoff. The event, originally scheduled to take place in the Plaza del Sol, was held inside at the Grand Salon because of the rain.
“We want to welcome students back to school and show them what we have to offer,” said Marlene Orozco, a USU student employee.
Students hurried out of the rain and into the Grand Salon as the doors opened at 11:00. The spacious room was decorated with red and black balloons and lined with different tables and activities. A popular stop was the free photo booth where students could don hats and take pictures with their friends.
School mascot, Matty the Matador, made a surprise appearance, dancing on stage with DJ MaL-Ski and posing for pictures with students.
Red Rally foam fingers were given out to students who won at the air hockey table and at the basketball shoot-out game. Students also scored free t-shirts at the Red Rally table where they were encouraged to come out and support their CSUN teams.
