The objective is to provide a space for students to relax and have fun with each other in between classes or when they have free time,” Aponte saidWe want students to know that we want them to engage with each other on campus and enjoy some inperson activities, while doing so in a safe way. 


About 15 students attended the event, according to Aponte. Most of the supplies used were already available from previous eventsMuch of the set up included the utilization of student staff.  


In order to cooperate with safety guidelines, students were asked to wipe down the equipment in between activities and when they were done.  Since the event was outdoors, the games were able be played physically spaced out, according to Aponte.
