California State University, Northridge faculty and staff came together to partake in fun activities at the Summer Celebration on June 26 at the Student Recreation Center (SRC).

Summer Celebration is an annual event that celebrated the completion of the 2016-17 academic year with an evening of food, games and mingling. The festivities help the administration show appreciation for CSUN’s hard-working faculty and staff, as well as their loved ones.

Throughout the SRC, those in attendance had the opportunity to take on the 46-foot rock wall, play bingo, pose for souvenir snapshots at a photo booth, play basketball and enjoy face painting.

At the main stage in the Red Ring Courts area, there was a lively Zumba session for all ages, a Family Feud competition and raffle prize drawings where participants could win CSUN Men’s Basketball tickets, a free membership to the SRC, free massages from the Klotz Student Health Center, a $100 campus store gift card and a pair of tickets to a John Mayer concert. Attendees also feasted on a variety of food and danced along to the tunes of DJ Mal-Ski. Here are photos from the event.
