Wolfie’s Putt Putt and Arcade, hosted by the Weekend Life Council, was held on February 24th in the Student Activities Center. About 400 students attended the “walk-in” event funded by the USG.
The arcade portion featured real arcade games like the famous Dance Dance Revolution. Students were very into the game and some showed their talented in moving their feet. Other games included Skee Ball, Pac-Man, six-player Air Hockey, four-player table Tennis and Twister on a Bouncy Castle (my personal favorite). Watching everyone struggle to twist around to land a foot somewhere on the always moving platform was hilarious. At once point, student cracked the code to the game, and would bounce on the castle to make others lose their balance.
Another attraction was the great snack food available, like mozzarella sticks, fried chicken, fried asparagus and broccoli, pigs in a blanket, chips and salsa and even a DIY cupcake bar! Anyone could go up to the bar and decorate cupcake with various icings on either a chocolate or vanilla base. They. Were. Delicious.
There were tons of students playing, enjoying, socializing and even a family came out to visit.
Jessica Vilas-Boas, a sophomore biochemistry major, said that the event was “good” and that “there’s a lot of activity with no waiting lines.” She most looked forward to the food and hoped that SBU would hold similar events in the future
Eugene K.L., a senior, had similar opinions. He enjoyed himself at the event, it being one of his first events on campus, because he thought “it sounded cool.”
All in all, attendees had fun, and while it was not nearly as popular as Wolfieland, Weekend Life and USG did a fair job in organizing the event. A lot of hard work went into it and it proved to be successful.
