Funday Monday boss plans for spring 2011

Series of events snap students out of their ‘weekend hangovers’

December 1, 2011

By Karen Mowls

Do Mondays make you feel a wave of stress for what the work week is about to smash down on you? This is why Bob Bergmann, manager of Cleveland State’s Student Center, created Funday Monday last January.

Bergmann said that people usually have kind of a weekend hangover, and it’s hard to get back into work mode. He said that he created the event to “get people energized for the rest of the week.”

On Monday, Nov. 28, Bergmann had an acoustic duo with the band name “Truman” playing right outside of Bar Uno for students to enjoy. Guests enjoyed a “1/2 off any food item” coupon by attending. Passersby stopped to enjoy the music on all levels of the Student Center, peering over railings to catch a glimpse of the duo in between classes.

Bergmann said that he had a list of hopeful musicians and liked Truman so he booked them. Next week, there will be another singer performing on Monday, Dec. 5, at 5:30 p.m. The events always take place in front of Bar Uno in the Student Center, and Jake Ousley (http://jakeousley.com/) will be the next guest.

Dec. 5 will be the final Funday Monday of the semester, but Bergmann is already planning on next semester’s events.

“I am currently planning for next semester, and I would like to find some co-sponsors,” said Bergmann. Bergmann has teamed up in the past with the Wolstein Center, helping to fund contests they run, like when they raffled off Chris Brown tickets.

Bergmann is always looking for different groups to work with. Contact Bergmann at studentcenter@csuohio.edu.
