A specially requested campus event is quickly approaching.

The “Glow Games” will take place during ROAR DAZE, a week devoted to hosting fun activities for students who want to throw down before they have to crack down on finals. Glow Games will take place April 9 from 7-9pm on the West Lawn and is free for students.

The games have been in the works for about a year. The Office of Student Activities has been collaborating with students to develop event ideas.

With an overwhelming amount of comments from students suggesting more activities with a glow-in-the-dark theme, OSA hopes to have created an event that is not only the first of its kind at UCCS, but that is sure to attract a large crowd.

Stephen Cucchiara, assistant director of OSA, is excited for the event. He compared it to a glorified field day.

“This event will feature a glow-in-the-dark corn maze, volleyball game, bowling and shirt decoration station. There will also be food provided and a cotton candy machine,” he said.

Roneisha Frazier, OSA graduate assistant for activities and programing, suggested ways to tailor your outfit for this event.

“You should definitely wear bright neon colors and good shoes for the outdoor activities. Also, be sure to bring a plain, white shirt to decorate at the event and save for the Black Light Dance.”

The Black Light Dance, on April 11 at 8 p.m. in Berger Hall, concludes ROAR DAZE.
