Students and guests gathered on Friday Sept. 2 next to Adams Humanities to go through a security check and celebrate Aztec Nights.

The ferris wheel, flying scooters, the round up and the zip line were just a few carnival rides to choose from. Pizza and popcorn complemented the festive environment.

Other welcome events during the week included  ARC ‘til Dark on Aug. 28, the Student Involvement Expo and the  Pride Center Open House on Aug. 31 and The Woke Mixer: One SDSU Community at the Women’s Resource Center on Sept. 1.

At the carnival, students had the opportunity to enjoy free rides, games and free food as well as an outdoor DJ that complemented the atmosphere.

Various students enjoyed the carnival last Friday night.

“I’m liking it, it’s really fun,” junior English major Brianna Chaidez, said.

As a new transfer student, this was her first time attending an event on campus.

The carnival did not only impress new students on campus, but it also attracted returning SDSU students.

“I just got here, but it looks really fun,” fourth year public relations major, Vivian Nguyen, said. “It looks really different than in the past years.”

Nguyen attended her first carnival during her freshman year.

“I think I liked my freshman year carnival the most since I was new,” Nguyen said. “I didn’t know what was going on, but now I know so I can do other things.”

Evan Fong, a business major, also enjoyed the carnival.

“It’s great. They’re bringing a lot of stuff for us to do and it’s not just the rides. he free food was a plus too.”

Fong also joined other events during the week.

“This is cool cause there’s a bunch of things out here to get us involved.”

  • Sex Signals Comedy Comedy, Sept. 8 10pm-2am, Union Theater in Montezuma Hall
