OC students released their pre-semester jitters at the USM-sponsored Block Party, its first social event of the year. The event featured local groups, including Minute to Minute and Chosen. USM officers served up games and food, while the student body made new friends and reunited with old ones.
Surprises, both anticipated and unexpected, made the night particularly memorable. No one anticipated Extreme Air Free Fall, the carnival ride and main attraction to malfunction. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Nor did anyone expect the impressive fireworks that brought the event to a climax. Kudos to the USM officers for a great start this year.–Syrita Hall, reporter.
