MCCC’s fourth annual National Student Day on Oct. 9 gave students a chance to celebrate their work so far this semester.
The annual event was sponsored by the bookstore and many clubs both on and off campus set up booths and games for students to enjoy.
“It is a great stress relief, and an excuse to have some fun,” student Tyler DeLaRosa said.
Event coordinator Jean Ford, Bookstore manager, explained the perks offered to students throughout the event.
“There are clubs from both on and off campus here. We have pizza, snacks, music, prizes, and Pepsi even donated drinks for everyone,” Ford said.
The event ran from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the A building.
“I’d say we had anywhere from 110-150 students come through today. I’m very pleased with that number and the student response,” Ford said.
Jared Hehl was one of many students who attended the event.
“It’s great to just be able to relax for once, and the music and atmosphere is great,” Hehl said.
National Student Day was started by the National College Store Association, and according to its website, aims to celebrate students who go above and
beyond their schoolwork to make a difference.
“It is important to celebrate the students, volunteerism, and social responsibility,” Ford said.
