This semester’s carnival included several new clubs, including Off the Wall, whose mission is “to allow students to experience off the wall topics, to foster creativity, spontaneity, and innovation.” It also featured many of the school’s favorites, including the famous United Samoan Organization, which regularly wins top club honors.

“ I think it was a success,” said Nathan Rudibaugh, office manager for Student Life. “The fall club carnival was so much bigger, since it was also the 40th birthday celebration, but we had about the same number of clubs.”

Along with the clubs were a number of outside vendors offering services to students new and old. Nelnet, a company that helps college students with financial needs, had two representatives at the Student Alumni Association table where students could ask questions while filling out information cards that put their names into a drawing, to win an IPod Shuffle.

Midway through the festivities, HPU’s national championship winning cheerleaders and dance team performed to the music of HPU’s band to start the semiannual pep rally, sponsored by the Office of Student Life and the Athletics Department. Jarnett Lono, assistant director of Student Life, introduced the spring sports, which include tennis, softball, and basketball. As each sport was announced, the coaches spoke briefly about themselves and their team, and the student-athletes introduced themselves. HPU’s baseball team wasn’t present, as its members were preparing for a game at Han’s L’Orange Park against California State University—Chico.

The event came to a close with Nelnet’s announcement that Kristane Gaspar had won the IPod Shuffle.
