The Campus Activities Board hosted a Sip and Paint event Monday in the Quad where about 60 students painted their stress away while sipping boba tea and listening to live music.
“I love how this event has brought everyone together. It brought out my creative side as well – I can’t remember the last time I even had time to paint and forgot how much I loved it,” John Ceja, senior international business major, said.
There was also a big white board placed on the grass where students could write what their goals are.
Students wrote things such as getting a higher grade point average or simply just taking better care of themselves.
“What better way to relieve stress than to sip tea, paint, and listen to relaxing music?” said Taylor Vasquez, sophomore educational studies major and CAB spirit chair.
“I put together this event for students to relax, especially since it’s the beginning of the school year and everyone it probably overwhelmed. It’s for students to come together and hangout with one another in an environment that’s really chill,” Aina Inguito, junior communications major and CAB concert chair, said.
