BU After Dark offers students a chance to de-stress

Delaney Worth, Contributing Writer

On Nov. 8, Activities and Campus Events (ACE) organized an event for the entire University community to enjoy.

BU After Dark, a carnival-like event held inside the massive Gerhard Fieldhouse, took place from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Giant inflatable slides covered the space, and students could be seen walking around with funnel cakes and other assorted festival foods. Caricatures, temporary tattoos, games, a Velcro wall, and laser tag were available.

“It was a well put-together activity that provided students a break from academics and a chance to have fun with friends,” David Frering ’18 said. “I especially enjoyed the food stand; it was nice to eat something that tasted good and was free.”

Judging from the line at the food stand all night, it seemed as if most students agreed.

“It was nice that they did this for everyone. It definitely gave a lot of people something new to do,” Brennan Sharkey ’18 said.

ACE will be hosting more events throughout the semester, including Cake Wars Remix on Nov. 14 at 9 p.m. in Bostwick Marketplace.
