The annual “Hoops Happenin’” event added a little fun to dinner time on March 9. The Pepsi-sponsored event featured basketball contest games with prizes and “game-style” food, including everything from popcorn and candy bars, to pretzels and burgers. Prizes this year included a mountain bike and a variety of Pepsi products.
Creative Dining hosts the event each year, packing the Dining Hall. An undeniable synergy takes over as students come together for fun and a little friendly competition.
“I enjoyed it a lot,” junior Mike Merlino of Holland, Michigan, commented. “I thought the food was really good, and the games were a lot of fun.”
With new and exciting prizes each year Hoops Happenin’ continues to be a crowd-pleaser on campus.
