Black lights and a 60-foot-by-60-foot mini golf course will be brought into the ballroom at the Muenster University Center to give students the chance to play golf in the dark with neon golf balls and clubs.
Glow Golf will be held in the MUC ballroom Jan. 29 from 6-10 p.m. Admission is $3, with all proceeds going toward USD Dakotathon and the Children’s Miracle Network.
Junior Stephanie Fischer, a member of the Campus Activities Board who worked on the project, said mini golf was chosen because there isn’t anywhere to do the activity in Vermillion.
“It’s an event where students can give money to philanthropy while having fun,” Fischer said.
Nathan Hofer, the advisor for CAB, said the partnership with Dakotathon helps with the promotion of the event and increases the leadership experience for students.
Hofer said CAB currently has no plans to partner with other groups on campus for events this semester, but said the group is open to the idea.
“It’s going to be a fun event,” Hofer said. “It’s going to a good cause.”
Hofer said student turnout and feedback will increase the chance of glow golf returning in future semesters.
“We’ll see how successful the student reaction is,” Hofer said. “What we do is for the student.”
Later this semester, Hofer said CAB will bring back last semester’s relaxation bar, along with Open Mic Nights and the USD Idol singing competition.
“There is a very unique set of events coming this semester,” Hofer said.
