ACU will conduct it’s fourth annual RecFest at 7 p.m. Friday at the Recreation and Wellness Center.
Students are invited to the Recreation and Wellness Center Friday to enjoy the festivities. From live music in the outdoor court to free food for the first 100 visitors, RecFest will be full of giveaways and fun. Activities will include inflatables, a dodgeball tournament, a Zumba party and kayak races. Other events include a photo booth and free prizes that will be given away throughout the night.
Jordyn Lee, a staff member at the Rec Center, said the event is a lot of fun and a great time to meet new people.
“I’ve been working RecFest for three years now, and it always seems to be really fun,” said Lee, graduate marriage and family therapy major from Marshalltown, Iowa. “It’s just a good time to meet new people.”
Joel Swedlund, executive director of the Rec Center, is excited for students to have the opportunity to enhance their ACU experience and enjoy time with friends.
“RecFest is just another way the SRWC hopes to enhance the ACU community experience on our campus,” Swedlund said. “We’re hoping for a great turnout. It should be a lot of fun.”
Swedlund said the activities provided are sure to be a hit.
“There will be a variety of things to do. You can enter the dodgeball tournament, participate in our Zumba party, play on the inflatables, or just hang out with your friends and listen to some live music,” said Swedlund. “We will also be having a photo booth with some wacky clothes as well as kayak races in the swimming pool. Door prizes will be given away throughout the night as well.”
Laura Obuchowski, graduate speech pathology major from Houston, is excited about the event and is looking forward to relaxing and having fun.
“It’s a fun time to hang out with friends and listen to live music outside the rec center,” Obuchowski said. “They also bring in local vendors sometimes, so there’s lots of free food, music, and exercise classes. It’s a lot of fun. I can’t wait to go back.”
RecFest begins with live music and inflatables opening at 7 p.m.
