Student senate announces “Wild West Night”

By Sam Royer ’15

On Friday, May 8, Student Senate will be hosting Wild West Night, “western-themed night of fun,” set to take place on campus.

According to Student Body President Pat Mulach ’15, senate sort of stumbled upon the idea. “We were brainstorming in December to come up with an event that will usher in the summer a little bit, and we came up with a western night,” Mulach said.

The night, which will run from 7:00 to 10:00pm, will contain a variety of events aimed to supply fun for everyone.

“We will have a mechanical bull for the duration of the night, and the rider with the best time will receive a prize and a bull-riding trophy,” Mulach said. In addition to the bull, the night will include an outdoor three point “western shoot out,” a poker tournament, a Cornhole tournament, and an appearance from Cowboy Jeff among other events.

The usual area girl schools will be invited, but the night will not be a required bring-a-date event.
