The Sterling College Campus Activities Board will host a Water Pong event on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. in Upper Wilson.
“We’re very excited about it. It’s supposed to be really chill but still inclusive,” said CAB President Brianna Chastain. “We wanted to get an event that kind of fits a lot of the student body.”
The game is essentially Beer Pong, but will be played with water instead of beer. This is a more tame event for CAB compared to their previous Color Wars event and their upcoming Halloween Bash, both of which are fast-paced and require a lot of work.
Water Pong will be a game of team elimination. Each team will be composed of two people. The first-place winning team will receive a $25 gift card to Applebee’s while the second-place winning team will win a $15 gift card to Subway.
“We try to do that on purpose to kind of give us a little break and be able to focus a lot on the crazy ones, which is nice,” Chastain said.
Now that Sterling College’s busy homecoming week is over, students will now have more time to attend extracurricular activities and events like the ones CAB hosts.
“We’re trying to figure out a way to bring more people to our events and a lot of times it’s really hard getting people to come,” said CAB Coordinator Patty Davila. “I know that this whole last week, theatre couldn’t go to any of the events for homecoming because of the musical. So, that’s a lot of people that we lost there. So, we’re trying to include everybody in our events.”
Sign-ups for Water Pong will be conducted outside the cafeteria during lunch hours for the rest of the school week.
The next event CAB will be hosting is their annual Halloween Bash on Oct. 25.
