I feel like this is a better event to come to already with other people rather than hoping to meet other people once you're there, since its sitting down and playing board games.

I appreciated that he was playing out in the Union so listeners could enjoy from anywhere and so that he had more of an audience. I also thought that putting the whole "coffee house" setup out was a clever idea. Unfortunately, he was performing during the times that I have class, so I was only able to briefly stop in. I definitely think this was better-suited as a daytime event, but that does add in the conflicting factor of classes.

I thought it was fun--there were a lot of great materials provided for the canvas art, the playlist was a bop, and I thought the wall of break-ups was a cute idea. A good lil' V-Day event.

I really enjoyed it! I thought it was structured well and I thought it was organized. The only thing I wish there was were sports teams. I would’ve loved to talk with the sport I want to play and ask them how to juggle school, friends, family, and my sport.
