The spring 2019 semester at California State University, Northridge got off to a fun-filled start with the University Student Union’s annual Spring Kickoff event on January 24.
Music and large inflatable games greeted new and continuing Matadors as they made their way to the USU’s Plaza del Sol. Students were invited to grab a free meal and take a seat on bleachers added to the Plaza so they could enjoy a live DJ and performances. One performance was an energetic routine of dance and stunts by the CSUN Cheer Team that brought Matatude to the USU.
In between performances were opportunities for students to win fun prices in a set of competitions, including a game of “Simon Says,” a dance challenge and pick-up soccer games.
Students also had the chance to challenge their friends to a variety of games, including giant Jenga, a field goal challenge and an inflatable basketball hoop, before commemorating their spring semester kickoff with a series of photos at the pop-up photo booth.
