Winter Quarter is typically considered a slower quarter for students after the excitement and buzz of Fall Quarter. However, Associated Students Inc. (ASI) didn’t slow down one bit, and the Campus Crop (formerly known as ASInside) was there to cover it all. Check our five top stories for the Quarter:
The first annual CPP homecoming was a rousing success, and it culminated in a Homecoming concert on Friday night. Campus Crop staff writer Erin O’Brien was there to interview the headlining band, Finish Ticket, on their inspirations and upcoming album. The lead singer and guitarist Brendan Hoye attended CPP as a freshman, so it truly was a homecoming for them.
CPP’s annual showcase of campus talents featured a beatboxer, many singers and a comedy act. Campus Crop staff writer Elizabeth Burdman was there to document the experience. The talent show also featured comedic host Erik Escobar, who had the audience in stitches in between acts. The night’s winner, Leo, brought down the house with his beatboxing act.
The 21st Annual Unity Luncheon featured a keynote speaker with bipolar disorder, Terri Cheney, for the topic of “See the person, not the disability.” ASI President Chris Osuala was recognized by the Black Faculty and Staff Association for being a “diversity champion” on campus. Osuala was honored and humbled by the experience. Read all about his reaction here.
Have you ever wondered about the type of work that goes into a Midnight Madness or BroncoFusion? Well, wonder no more! Staff writer Chris Bashaw delved into the secret world of ASI BEAT led by ASI Secretary of Programs and Services Aisha Razzak. From the ideas made in the BEAT meeting, to the journey for a successful event, it is all documented in this story.
Following the events at Sandy Hook Elementary School, ASI BEAT put on a “State of Our Community” event for the students on the topic of “Violence in our Schools.” Among the topics discussed during the night were gun control and violence. Students were given the opportunity to express their thoughts on the topic, as is customary with State of Our Community events. ASI BEAT will be hosting more “State of Our Community” events for students to express their thoughts on other topics.
