Hundreds of students gathered in the student center Tuesday, March 24, to enjoyÂ free food and music and to join the ASCC as they hosted â€œCuestaâ€™s Amazing Race.â€
The race was a scavenger hunt around campus, that was designed to get students more familiar with their resources on campus and what Cuesta has to offer to itâ€™s students. The hunt included: taking a selfie with your ASCC President, take a picture of a retired employee plaque, take a picture with your favorite Cuesta Instructor or staff member, visiting the health center and many more.
The race began at 11:45 a.m. with prizes being offered for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams. The first place team was awarded two kindles, second place was awarded two $25 gift cards and third place is awarded two $15 gift cards.
â€œThe event is going great. We have a lot of students participating and coming to the tables and talking to community members…We have our health center and campus police here, and many local business showed support as well,â€ said Anthony Gutierrez, Cuestaâ€™s coordinator of student life and leadership.
With Spring Break right around the corner, the ASCC wanted to give students ideas for what to do to have a â€œsafe Spring Break.â€ Â Vista Lago Adventure Park had representatives there to talk about different packages they offer for ziplining and obstacles courses; as well as other information about local events happening in San Luis Obispo County.
â€œOverall itâ€™s been a great event,â€ said Gutierrez.
