Popular late-night game returns

Liberty University’s School of Divinity Lawn turned into a dazzling array of colors last Friday, Sept. 15 as students gathered for Neon Mini Golf, hosted by Student Activities. The event, which attracted over 300 students, began at 8 p.m. and featured two glow-in-the-dark mini golf courses, vibrant decorations and a chance to win prizes. 

As students lined up to enter Neon Mini Golf, the excitement was evident. The line to the School of Divinity Lawn stretched from the Freedom Tower, where students gathered with friends and made new ones. 

Right by the illuminated Freedom Tower, the venue was strategically chosen to increase visibility and gather students from
a distance.

“We wanted students to spot our event from afar and be drawn in by the vibrant colors and energetic atmosphere,” Jordan Hassler, an event supervisor at Student Activities, said. 

Upon entering the event, students were greeted by Student Activities workers and a diverse selection of free stickers. Setting the stage for an evening of neon fun, students received glow sticks, golf putters and glowing golf balls at the Student Activities tent.

Neon Mini Golf showcased two mini golf courses adorned with a kaleidoscope of decorations. Hassler emphasized Student Activities’ commitment to creating a visually aesthetic event with chalkboards, posters and glow sticks that illuminated the venue. The event also included music streaming from speakers. 

“The vibes are unreal,” freshman Marta Hostettler said. “The music is awesome. The lights are just so sweet, and I’m having a great time with my new friends.” 

Throughout the night, students competed for prizes like Nerf guns, stuffed animal keychains and flame-shaped glasses by achieving a hole in one. 

According to Hassler, Neon Mini Golf created an opportunity for Liberty students to come together, meet new friends and unwind after a busy week. 

“It’s a chance for students of all classes to have a good time, make memories and enjoy a unique experience on campus,”
Hassler said.
