Stress Free Week concludes with free food and activities

Students having fun while they paint dishes during “Dine and Dish” event as a part of “Stress Free Week.” The event took place from 6-8 p.m. on Nov. 9 in RSU room 207.

Fresno State Spotlight Events hosted Dine and Dish, which gave members of the campus community the opportunity to enjoy free food, win prizes, play games and color various dishes.

The event, held on Thursday, Nov. 9, in the Resnick Student Union, concluded “Stress Free Week” by offering students crepes on a first-come, first-served basis to the first 50 students who attended the event.

“I love to paint so I thought it would be a cool idea to paint, snack on something and hang out with friends. It’s slightly unorganized, so I’m glad I got a plate. As long as I’m having fun with friends,” said Vanessa Nava, a junior health science major.

After everyone finished with food, the event held an icebreaker game where students had a character from a TV show or movie taped to their back and the objective was to find the person who had the same character taped to their back.

Spotlight Events then handed out dishes where students could express their creativity by coloring and designing it.

The event also offered 50 dishes and a multitude different games that gave students the opportunity to meet other members of the campus community.
Celeste Chargoy, a junior, ag business major, spoke to The Collegian about what brought her to the event and what her thoughts were.
“My friend sent me a post about this event. I’m very crafty so we decided to come. So far I’ve enjoyed meeting new people with the ice-breaker idea. Overall, it really was a very chill event, ” Chargoy said.
The event featured five prizes given away in a raffle to those in attendance. The prizes were three Starbucks gift cards with a tote bag, and two stand alone Starbucks gift cards.
Spotlight Events holds events all semester long.
“We have “Thankful Walk Around” coming up at the end of November. Then we have “Jingle and Mingle” on Dec. 5 where we’ll give out hot chocolate, paint tote bags and crochet coasters,” said Mia Villalobos, student event coordinator.
