To welcome students back to school from fall break, CORE hosted the “60 Second Scramble.” From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25, in the Robertson Student Center, CORE put on a “Minute to Win It” style game night with free food and beverages.
New to Northwestern this year, CORE is a Student Life program designed to create engaging events on and off campus to help grow the Northwestern community. The CORE cabinet has worked tirelessly on creating events that grow a sense of community and fellowship among students on campus.
Kalena Coleman, CORE’s executive of on-campus events, states, “The ‘60 Second Scramble’ event was designed with the intention of having an entertaining night to ease us back into the swing of school after a busy week of midterms.”
Ryan Heckmann, CORE on-campus event cabinet member explains, “Whether you came to compete in one of the Minute to Win it games, eat the free food or simply to watch others play, it was a fun night for everyone”.
Coleman explains, “There were prizes for each person who won a mini game and free food for everyone. The ‘60 Second Scramble’ is designed to be a night for everyone to enjoy, even if you are not participating in a game. It’s always fun to come enjoy a night of laughter with your friends.”
Earlier this year, CORE put on an event for students called Movie on the Green, where students gathered on the campus green to watch a movie. CORE is also planning to host an event called “Night in Naz” from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31. “Night in Naz” is a costume dance party that will take place in the Nazareth Great Room.
Tina Motalebi, CORE on-campus event cabinet member comments, “The event on Wednesday night was definitely a success. Everything ran smoothly and everyone seemed to have a great time. It has been such an honor to be a part of CORE. They put so much time and planning into every single detail of an event.”
