ASCOCC is planning Country Night in mid-February for students. Some, however, question it’s fairness.
Family-friendly events like Free Bowling Night are a resounding success,so the members of ASCOCC are considering bringing a night of entertainment to the school’s older students.
Held at The Mountains Edge, this new event hopes to draw a large crowd with mechanical bull rides, free games of pool and music by local bands. The Mountains Edge will be offering Student Prices during the event to keep students refreshed as they try to ‘buck’ those winter blues.
Some have voiced their concerns about excluding students who are not yet 21. Council member Heather Condon explains that while events like Bowling Night are great for younger student or those with families, not all students want to go out bowling.
“They want something where they can go out and have some fun,” she states.
To be fair to younger students, the members of student government are looking at bringing Country Night to the campus in the future, where students of all ages can try their hand at riding a mechanical bull, but the details for this event have not yet been established.
In the mean time, Country Night promises to be quite the hoedown for those old enough to attend.
