Iconic songs filled the Brewhouse this past Thursday as a few Doane students enjoyed free food and music bingo.
The event, put on by Campus Life, began at 7 p.m. and ended around 8:30 p.m. when all the prizes had been won.
Free appetizers and desserts were offered to those who attended and laughter was plentiful.
Those who came were visibly enjoying themselves and listening to songs that hadn’t been heard for years while competitively playing bingo for prizes.
Prizes offered included a Keurig coffee maker, a gaming headset, water bottles and a television for the student who could get a blackout bingo first.
Songs ranged in genres, with artists such as Metallica, Bruno Mars, The All-American Rejects and The Spice Girls, all combining to provide a unique atmosphere that was enjoyed by those in attendance.
The DJ was interacting with the students and cracking jokes which amplified the enjoyment for students.
There were around 10 students in all who attended.
Senior Olivia Steffensen was among the few who attended, but truly enjoyed the experience and how it was different than many other events that had been put on before.
“I thought it was fun. It was a type of programming that I haven’t seen campus life do before, and I’d like to see them keep up the variety in the future,” Steffensen said.
Steffensen advises students to go to these events, as they can be a fun activity with great incentives to go.
“If I could offer one thing to Doane students about these kinds of events, it would be to go. There’s almost always free food and a chance to win prizes, and it’s a good way to get out of your usual weekend routine,” Steffensen said.
