CAB throws CABsino: Great-Gatsby themed party

By Becky Byron

Cleveland State’s Campus Activity Board held a Gatsby themed event in the Student Center entitled The Great CABsino on the evening of Friday, Nov. 6.

The event included a photo booth, casino games, costumes, hors d’ oeuvres, and prizes such as an Apple Watch, Beats headphones, a smart TV, hoverboard, and a gift card to the dining hall.

With more than 1,300 people in attendance, the event broke records for CAB and according to attendees everyone had nothing short of a great time.

“It was amazing, and a huge turnout of people were there having a mini Vegas experience,” said Prattyush Roy, 26, a chemical engineering graduate student.

“There were slots to blackjack and even poker tables,” Roy continued. “The best part was learning how to play 3 card poker and people dressing up in suits and formal gowns added to the whole glitz and glamor of the event.”

Louis Walee, 22, black studies and political science major, also had a great time.

“It was a nice atmosphere, I joked and laughed with a lot of the guys and gals I played poker with,” Walee said. “I would attend another event thrown by CAB. I’ve attended their previous events and enjoyed them as well.”

Brianna Weir, CAB’s campus traditions chair, added that the events success was exactly what they were hoping for.

“CABsino has been a Traditions event on campus for a number of years,” Said Weir. “As our most popular event of the semester, the goal when planning it this year was to make it bigger and better than ever.”

Organizers and attendees agree that all in all the event was a wild success. Plans for future events organized by CAB are underway.
