SUBOG hosted "Curling and Hot Chocolate" on Fairfield Way yesterday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. as part of SnOlympics ¬- Winter Weekend 2014. The purpose of this event was to get in the mood for the Winter Olympics.
"The Olympics are coming up and I heard about it on a SUBOG poster and planned to go," said 7th semester finance major Melissa Touger.
The event allowed students to play the Olympic sport, curling and enjoy hot chocolate for free.
"Curling is my favorite winter Olympics sport, I actually watch it all the time," said Touger.
Students also came because they enjoy events hosted by SUBOG.
"I like the events that SUBOG puts together. This one is really representative of the Winter Olympics. Hot chocolate, hats, and curling. It's a good thing to come out and do," said 6th semester accounting major Hasudin Pehratovic.
Students who attended had a lot of fun, but also found the sport difficult.
"[Curling] is harder than it looks," stated Touger.
Some students believed that when they did well at curling that it was quite an achievement.
"Probably the third happiest moment of my life after [high school] graduation and probably college graduation. This is up there," joked Pehratovic.
