East and Pollock Hold End of Year Festivities

This week, both East and Pollock will hold their annual end of the year celebrations.

East Halls Residence Assocation’s “Quadzilla” (Thursday, April 28)

East’s celebration will take place from 4:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. This year’s Quadzilla will feature inflatables, free t-shirts and tie dye, and a DJ. As with any great event, there will be tons of free food including hot dogs, hamburgers, snow cones, cotton candy and lots more!

Pollock Halls Residence Association’s “Pollock Palooza” (Friday, April 29)

Being touted as “the biggest Pollock Palooza yet,” this year’s festivities will include inflatables, a mechanical bull, a bungee trampoline, a caricature artist and a DJ. The celebration will be held from 3:00 p.m. to 7 pm.

Aside from the DJ, Pollock Palooza will feature live entertainment by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, and the Urban Dance Troupe. These performances will begin at 4pm.

Of course, like East, there will be free food galore.

Make sure to schedule a break between studying and classes and stop by for some free fun and food! Both events are open to all students, not just those living in that area.
