Freshmen girls’ night out a ‘sweet’ success

By Dominique Vinas


What better way to bring girls together than a night full of sweets, Disney movies and nail painting?

The Office of Residential Student Services organized an event mainly for freshman girls to come out and mingle with some of the upperclassmen and exchange some college tips!

The hosts of the event, Grace Campbell and Nia Phillips, are Resident Assistants of the New Upper Residence Hall and they worked hard to make the night a success.

They put together a Disney Princess quiz asking various trivia questions about the movies and whoever filled one out got to enjoy cupcakes they baked for everyone. Also, the winner of the quiz walked away with a $25.00 gift card to Barnes & Noble.

A booth was set up where all the girls could go to get their nails painted while getting to know each other. Michelle Walburry, a freshman, said the event was a lot of fun.

“I felt like a kid again, eating cupcakes, making new friends, and watching movies…all the upperclassmen gave me advice about how to manage my school work and fun, and how to make my freshman year a great experience,” said Walburry. “I’m glad I got to know them!”

Both the students and the Resident Assistants said they had a good time participating in the event.

“It’s my responsibility and honor as a Resident Assistant to make sure we bring the students together and make them feel comfortable where they live,” said Campbell.
