Runner Hour successfully gave students and staff members a way to be involved by playing “The Big Shoe,” an event hosted by CSU Bakersfield’s ASI on Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2021. This event was outside the Student Union and allowed CSUB students and staff members to shoot some hoops.
ASI’s Vice President of Campus Life Divyang Motavar stated “This week we are having a collaboration with the SRC, an inflatable basketball game for all. To try not to stress about school or life, just come play basketball with us and have fun.”
SRC staff member Paul Barretto who helped set up “The Big Shoe” stated, “On Wednesdays from 12-2 p.m. we’ll be doing “The Big Shoe,” which is an inflatable basketball court. Thursdays from 12-2 p.m. we’ll be doing cornhole and at the end of the semester for “The Big Shoe”, if you get the highest score you’ll be able to get a photo with our championship belt.”
The time heading from class to class allowed many students to play against their friends. There were also shirts being provided for the winner of the game. Everyone had fun before heading to their classes or work. They seemed happier leaving the game, especially the winners who won free shirts. The event brought people together, and with the pandemic it was nice to get students and staff members interacting.
ASI Director for Arts and Humanity Tiffany James stated, “It was a fun and competitive game.” and many other students and staff members said the same as they played.
