CRC held a club day event called Hawk-O-Ween on Oct. 27 in the quad. The Puente Club, Outdoors Club, Student Government and others were present at the event.

The Hawk-O-Ween event was held at Cosumnes River College on Oct. 27 and was designed to get students into the Halloween spirit and check out the clubs offered.
The event was located in the quad and had Halloween decorations placed around trees as well as many activities for students to participate in.
“We wanted to do something for clubs to have a club day, but we also wanted to have it Halloween-themed, so that’s kind of how we came up with Hawk-O-Ween,” said Interim Student Life and Leadership Center Supervisor Kayla Anaya.
The Outdoors Club, Puente Club, Student Government and others were tabled at the event.
“We’re trying to get out and engage students again, especially since we are just getting back in person with students,” said Student Personnel Assistant Jordan Cervantes. “So we’re trying to make ourselves visible and create engagement.”
Cervantes said the Department of Student Life and Leadership wanted to bring a little bit of fun to campus while incorporating the Halloween theme.
Each club that was tabled had different activities for students to do. One activity included a spinning wheel with candy attached so students could spin it for candy.
“There are multiple opportunities for students to become involved and get involved here on campus,” said Associated Students CRC Student Government President Jocelin Avila.
Avila said Hawk-O-Ween was fun and was excited for students to join in on the activities that were included at the event.
Avila added that having a food truck like Chintos, which served wings and tacos, was fabulous because the food trucks seemed to get a lot of attention from students.
Other activities included Jenga, creating your own Halloween decoration and posing for pictures holding a sign that read “Hawk-O-Ween.”
Twenty-one-year-old political science major James Bennett, said he thinks many students aren’t aware of events like these.
“I think that this event is pretty much only noticed by people the day of when they are walking past it,” said Bennett. “I know clubs in general, like the Outdoors Club, has quite a few members, but other clubs are very inactive.”
