Salt Lake Community College students who attend South City Campus can have a lot more fun in between classes.
Student Life and Leadership members from the North Region invite all students to come and play video games every Wednesday during the fall semester. Known as Xbox Wednesdays, the idea came from outgoing North Region vice president Miles Broadhead and North Region assistant to vice president family chair Dahlin Zobel.
“Students are all welcome to come the whole time or just stop by between classes, we’ve even had faculty come in and play,” says Zobel.
Students come to the Student Life and Leadership office between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to play a variety of games on the Xbox One.
“We have a large selections of games and it is the students choice of which game they want to play,” says Zobel. “We have Madden, Halo, Fife, Mortal Kombat, COD [Call of Duty].”
Zobel says a PlayStation or Wii could be brought in for these gaming sessions.
North Region activities chair Tyler Olpin oversees the weekly gaming sessions and has also ordered snacks for the students playing.
“It lets students get away from stress and have fun meeting new people,” says Olpin.
The Student Life and Leadership office is always open. It is a great place to study, meet the Student Life and Leadership members, or just kill time between classes.
“The office is there for the students to come in and hang out,” says Zobel.
Student Life and Leadership officers are advocates for the entire student body and always look for new ways to bring students together.
Stop by their office in room 2-070 at South City Campus to get your gaming fix every week.
