This year will be the 6th annual mega foam party and it will be hosted by the Student Events Team on the 8th of September, 2018. It will start at 8 pm following up with an after party.

This event has been hosted by the Student Event Team for five years and there have been new activities created to make the event more fun each year. 

“This event is a Foam Dance Party. This is a fun high energy event for students to bring their new friends to,” said Lucas Arndt, Student Event vice president.

“We will be having a huge after-party starting at 9:00 pm and will take place in the CSU front lawn right next to the foam party. There will be 3 giant inflatables, a photo booth, large screen video games, a cake walk, yard games and more. There will be a free chicken nugget bar and other great snacks.” 

Students must wear shoes or sandals, a shirt and shorts; ziplock bags to protect phones and peoples belongings will be provided at the event because they will get wet from the foam and UV light that would be sprayed on students throughout the event and by the end students live with their ‘clothes of many colors’.

This event is open to both on campus and off-campus students. There will be a live DJ, two foam machines that will spray enough foam within four minutes and other unique activities to keep students entertained though out.

This is an event students, especially freshmen, can meet different people and can also make lasting friendships. Students have seemed to enjoyed this event, and would come every year. 

“One thing I love about the foam party is when we are been sprayed with the foam” said Ella, “I met most of my friends at the foam party in my first year and now am in my junior year. I will be going to this year’s foam party and I encourage other students to come, it’s so much fun!”

Students will not only make lasting friendships but could also start making memories for their college days to come. The event is safe for everyone, and since it’s on campus there will be security around, patrolling the area.

Students can invite their friends and family to be part of the fun. It is a free event and does not require a ticket or MavCard. It can be said to be an event to welcome students back to school and give them the opportunity to socialize more before the semester becomes more busy.
