The beginning of the semester at CSUN is traditionally filled with events welcoming students — with free T-shirts, food, photo ops and music. Indicating a return to normalcy is around the corner, CSUN Associated Students (AS) hosted the Matador Experience Fair Oct. 4 to 6, combining all the best of these welcome events with the safety of COVID-19 protocols.
Filling the walkways of the CSUN Library quad, the event lined up various campus entities such as The Soraya, CSUN Athletics, Associated Students Productions, the Student Recreation Center and more, to give students information about the services and resources available to them. Students also received free swag, including water bottles, pins and the annual AS Planner. Once they made their way through the line of campus booths, Matadors could conclude the experience with a free treat from Happy Ice.
On-campus events are continuing as COVID-19 protocols allow. This week, Associated Students and the University Student Union hosted Pumpkin Fest, an annual event celebrating October that includes free pumpkins, music and a photo booth. The event took place Oct. 12 in the Plaza del Sol.
