First ISU AfterDark of the Year!

Hello everyone!

It’s that time again! ISU AfterDark will start the series of awesome events starting TONIGHT! With a whole new look, ISU AfterDark is hoping to keep on bringing that Free Friday Fun we all love.

This event is packed with some fun FREE activities like the following:

– Bingo. As usual, AfterDark bingo will take place in the Sun Room/South Ballroom with a bunch of awesome prizes. And who knows…maybe there might be new themes and ways to win? AfterDark Bingo is the best kind of bingo at Iowa State and you know it!

– ThinkFast Team Trivia. These people will have a sweet set up, transporting you to a show! Everyone will get into teams and compete to get $400 in cash prizes! Also, there will be a game of either musical chairs or a simple dance-off with prizes during each break of this activity! So be on the lookout for that!

– Subway sandwiches and cookies. If you get hungry between activities or just want to grab a filling snack, stop by the food court at 10:30 to get subway sandwiches and–yes–their delicious cookies!

– Green Screen photos. We’ll have some pretty cool backgrounds for you to choose and all you have to do is strike a pose!

– Bowling and Billiards. The Underground will have these activities for free for people come to enjoy until midnight!

– Lauren Potter. The first presenter! I bet you know her…she’s on Glee, she’s Sue’s sidekick and whatnot. I bet it will be an interesting hour of entertainment!

– Tig Notaro. Very praised that comedian comes up next after Lauren. As usual, our comedians steal the show, so make sure to stop by and check this Grammy-nominated gal!

– Craft of the night: Decoupage School Supplies: Want to put some style to your everyday routines? Head down to the Workspace and check the craft they’ll have for the night!

– Karaoke. Show your inner artist as you sing along to our variety of choices for karaoke night! Bring friends along, make them sing “Fergalicious” with you or some other embarrassing song. Trust me, it is fun once you get on stage and perform! (co-sponsored by the Black Student Alliance)

– Video Games. Now this one is my favorite…because you guys can get the opportunity to play some vintage games on the big screen! There will be 3 screens and I know one of them will have a Nintendo 64 with Super Smash Bros and others…unleash your inner child! (co-sponsored by Pi Beta Phi)

– Board Games. While you wait for your green screen photos (since they will be in the same place), hang out a little more and play some of the board games they’ll have lying around. (co-sponsored by NAACP)

This first event is filled with anticipation and excitement, so make sure to be some of the people that will get to see our new style and fresh look! You can always tell us what you think by filling out one of our surveys to get the opportunity to win 1 of the 2 iPad Minis at our end-of-the-night raffle, or just some sweet deals on gift cards!

If you haven’t seen our display case by the spiral staircase of the Memorial Union, here it is for you to see:

As well as our poster for the event! See some of the things and details I mentioned are not included on it, so if you get to read this you get exclusive information for each AfterDark event this semester 😉


Don’t stay in on a promising Friday night! Remember, you could maybe meet your future spouse at one of our events. 😉
