Students sing to de-stress

The Campus Activities Board hosted a karaoke night with free food and a pop socket giveaway Tuesday in the La Fetra Auditorium. 

Around 30 students attended the event to sing their stress away ahead of upcoming finals and eat Persian food like rice, kabobs and pita bread. 

It did not take much more than the song “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey to get everyone up on their feet.

“I made this event as a stress reliever and way for students to have fun before finals week coming up,” said CAB concerts chair and junior sociology major Alexxandra Nevarez. 

Nevarez said she wanted this event to allow students to get to know each other. 

 “It’s fun to be surrounded with people, music and free food,” Nevarez said.

The students who were scattered around came together and hugged one another rocking side by side singing along to, “O-o-oh Child” by Five Stairsteps.

After several more performances, the night drew to a close.

“I think these events are important because everybody can come out and socialize,” said junior kinesiology major Mark Vasquez.
