Pantherpalooza will showcase RSOs again

Eastern has an event called Pantherpalooza every fall semester, but for the first time this semester, Eastern is having a spring semester Pantherpalooza.

Pantherpalooza, a showcase for all Registered Student Organizations on campus, will take place this week. This will give transfer students and other students the chance to learn about organizations and how to get involved on campus.

This event is taking place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday in the University Ballroom located in the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union.

The different RSOs will be there and will provide information about the respective groups.

The student government and the University Board cooperated on this event.

Dan Rolando, the vice president for student affairs and Jessica Leggin, the UB public relations coordinator, are co-chairs of this event.

“I decided that (the) student government and (the) UB working together would make this event bigger and better,” Rolando said.

The event is open to everybody; transfer students are encouraged to come since they may not have been able to attend the fall event.

There will be raffles, an interactive game and bingo available to students.

The bingo board will have fun facts about different RSOs and students must go around to the different tables to find out which RSO the fact is about.

“The bingo game is a good way for students to check out some RSOs that they may not have before,” Leggin said.

There will also be a T-shirt giveaway and raffles for students and the different RSOs present.

Prizes will be given away such as gift cards to the Union Bookstore.

The RSOs who signed up online for the Pantherpalooza will be put into a drawing to win a pizza party worth up to $50.

However, the RSO that wins must be in attendance when its name is called.

“With the different raffles and bingo game, everyone has a chance to win something,” Leggin said.

Both Rolando and Leggin said they hope that many students come out to the event.
