The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) drove in the Spring semester by offering students a chance to win some great Cal State LA gear at Prize Palooza.
On Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the University Student Union Plaza, students and guests were able to participate in three fun games. If they landed on a certain logo, the student would automatically win or have to answer a simple question relating to the campus, such as “where can you find a job on campus?” or “what year was Cal State LA established?” By answering the question correctly the student was awarded a prize. If students did not win anything yet or simply wanted to collect all the prizes, they were given the opportunity to try the game multiple times.
Three activities were featured: the first, a wheel spin, where students had the opportunity to win a Cal State LA sack bag, a black Cal State LA water bottle, and a gold bandana with the Cal State LA logo; the second, a game of plinko, where students drop three pucks and if at least two of them landed on logos they would have the choice of winning a screen cleaner with a map of the campus or a phone stand that can be stuck onto the back of a smartphone; and third, the bean bag toss, where students would attempt to either get two bean bags in holes with eagles on them and answer the question about Cal State LA correctly or the center hole for an automatic prize choice of either hand sanitizer or yellow tint lip balm.
The prizes did not stop after completing all the activities as members of the men’s Cal State LA baseball team showed up, offering a ‘home run’ of a prize to the palooza. Austin Nazabal, who pitches for the baseball team, and Andrew Jimenez, the mid infielder, handed out complimentary tickets to students for their home opener against Cal Baptist on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 6p.m.
Prize palooza was a great way to start the semester by allowing students a chance to win prizes that might actually useful. In the end, every participant was a winner.
