More than 350 students filled the Campus Center for Destination Procrastination, the fifth annual pre-finals event hosted by the Campus Activities Board and Associated Students of the University of La Verne May 11.

The event included free food, massages, arts and crafts, games, late-night tutoring sessions and raffle prizes.

“Our goal was to provide students with some fun before finals and give them different ways to de-stress,” said Karina Gonzalez administrative assistant for the Office of Student Life, who helped plan the event.

Because of the popularity of the event, CAB decided to use all three floors of the Campus Center. Free test taking materials, earplugs for finals and a breakfast and coffee bar were available on the first floor. Free food was given out throughout the night with to-go snacks, G’s Taco Truck and King Kone soft serve sundaes. The second and third floors hosted activities such as a movie screening, arcade games with prizes, massages by athletic training students, palm readers and ePortfolio training.

“This semester we featured more unique events and vendors such as our butt sketch caricature artist who drew students’ butts, the ‘Have at It’ room where students can throw pillows and jump around with friends, and stress-free arts and crafts so students don’t have to worry about Mother’s Day gifts,” Anyssa Ramirez, CAB special events chairwoman and sophomore education major, said.

“It incorporated new ideas and also what we had done in the past,” she said.

Malinda Miranda, sophomore criminology major, said she attended the Destination Procrastination event for the first time to avoid editing an essay she has due next week.

“I enjoy the multiple activities they have,” Miranda said. “My favorite part is the free giveaways. They gave out free emoji pillows that we could stuff ourselves,” she said.

Catherine Rodriguez, sophomore education major, said she nearly forgot the stress of school while she was at the event.

“I got to see the butt sketch artist, read my palm and paint,” Rodriguez said. “All were extremely fun.”
