It was all part of Aztec Nights, a program started in the fall of 2008 that provides entertaining nighttime activities in a safe environment. This spring, Aztec Nights has been up and running once again with one of the most enticing lineups yet.
Although rain postponed some of the activities in the first week of the semester, it didn’t hinder students from taking full advantage of four nights of on-campus events.
Murder Mystery Dinner
First up was a murder mystery dinner that encouraged students to “forget a date– bring an alibi.” The fun-filled evening included a sit down Italian meal and mock murder that left everyone under suspicion.
Welcome Back Madness
Next up was Welcome Back Madness that was held directly after one of SDSU’s infamous basketball games. The excitement of the game carried over to Peterson Gym, where students enjoyed music, pizza, photo booths, and even a mechanical bull.
Vortex Laser Tag
Possibly the coolest new event to hit Aztec Nights was Vortex Laser Tag. A grass field was transformed into a laser tag course that offered adventure and excitement for students. Techno music set the backdrop for this high energy night.
The final installment of Aztec Nights opening week activities was the Winter Wonderland created near Scripps Cottage. A snow machine created 24 tons of real snow that allowed students to sled, throw snowballs, and of course, create a few snowmen. The event was packed with students who didn’t want to leave the snowy hill when the event ended at 1 a.m.
Despite all these events, Aztec Nights isn’t over just yet. The next activity is all about giving into the 7 deadly sins and includes taking out some of your wrath, a gluttonous chocolate fountain, and lots of Aztec pride. All you need to do is follow the search lights to find these fun and free activities on campus.
