Pulling an all-nighter usually includes drinking massive amounts of coffee and being on the verge of hallucinating due to lack of sleep, but on Thursday, Associated Students Inc. (ASI) Recreational Sports plans to change all that.
ASI will be hosting the first annual “Dusk ’til Dawn” event in the Rec Center from 8 p.m. on Thursday evening until 2 a.m. early Friday morning.
“We want to be getting back to non-traditional programs for students to get away from their normal routines,” said Jennie Floyd, student manager of Marketing, Outreach and Public Relations with ASI Recreational Sports.
The free event will feature live music provided by Resination and 106.1 FM’s DJ Mel to inflatable boxing, jousting and a 26-foot slide. There will also be Halo and poker tournaments, as well as a mechanical bull sponsored by The Graduate.
“We have the resources in place to give back to the students,” Floyd said.
Students from all years are invited, and are asked to bring their Cal Poly ID card for free entry.
According to a press release by ASI, the night “will help students cure the winter blues and have some serious fun before finals.”
This is the first event in years of this magnitude to help unite the campus, Floyd said.
“There are not enough events where students can all come together until now,” she said.
