Midnight Mayhem attacks the HKC

Put on comfortable clothing and lace up your tennis shoes, the HKC’s annual Midnight Mayhem is back!

With a fun filled schedule, the HKC is hosting a party for students on Wednesday, Feb. 21 from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m.

“This is a fun and free event for students,” said Tina Deases, Senior Assistant Director of Events. “There will be something here for everyone.”

A list of events include: guitar hero, boxing, an inflatable zip line, laser tag, ride the bull, Simon Says, speed stacking, a rock paper, scissor contest and an eating contest.

“During our eating contests, the winner will be chosen on who can eat three hotdogs the fastest,” Deases said. “We absolutely will not do anything to make a student sick, this is a fun night and all of our activities will reflect that.”

While dodge ball remains at the top of the list of activities for the evening, Deases wants to remind students to register early for a team to play on.

“I would like to get all the students who wish to play dodge ball registered by Tuesday night at the latest,” Deases said. “We have eight teams total and four are already taken, so students who want to play need to reserve their spot as soon as possible.”

If students are not interested in pegging their fellow peers with bouncy balls hurling through the air at top speeds, a more calm and relaxing venue, such as rock climbing round out the night’s activities. “The climbing wall will be open all evening,” Deases said. “This event will be a place to see and be seen.”

Not only will there be tons of games and socialization, but there will also be several raffle prizes.

“At the end of the night we will have 10 students competing to win our largest raffle, which is $500,” Deases said. “We will bring the students out onto the basketball court and see who can make the shot from the half court line.”

With months of planning, Deases said this year is special because an SHSU fraternity will be volunteering their time.

“This year Phi Beta Sigma will be volunteering at the event,” Deases said. “We want to thank the Sigma’s for their hard work that will make this event really great.”
