Alter Ego Productions, a student organization that aims to build community on campus, held indoor ice-skating this past Wednesday in the Student Lounge. The event was free for all and was part of AEP’s “Winter Welcome” which includes a number of events to kick off the new semester.
“It’s what we do to welcome new and returning students,” said Erin Richardson, special events producer.
Usually they hold three back-to-back activities every year but this year they decided to have one huge event with the ice rink. This ice skating event wasn’t just your normal, every day ice-skating, it was “Ice-less” ice-skating. No wet, no cold, just a slippery, smooth surface made of high-density interlocking pieces. The organization rented the rink through an agency called Record A Hit Entertainment. This company has all kinds of attractions, from mini golf to movie screens, that can be rented for any kind of event.
This coming Wednesday AEP will be having a balloon artist at the Student Life Fair. Their meetings are every Monday from 11:30 to noon and new members are always welcome. They will also be having their first open mic on February 6, an event featuring Black Jew Dialogues (a comedic group) on February 7, and club game show on February 27.
