ASU students and faculty on Saturday, Feb. 2 attended ASU Day at the Rodeo for free at the Foster Communications Coliseum.
The midway opened from noon until 11 p.m. Some of the events included a rodeo parade at 10 a.m., a matinee performance at 1 p.m., and an evening performance at 7:30 p.m.
Senior Janet Becerril said she went with two of her good friends to get a break from school and just have fun.
“While we were there, we played with some goats, watched a pig race, got on a few amusement rides and watched a rodeo performance,” she said.
Becerril said her favorite part was winning a Marine Corps. pull-up competition and winning a few prizes.
Senior Samantha Cobos, who accompanied Becerril, said she wanted to see the rodeo and all the events.
“My favorite part was when the girls were barrel racing,” Cobos said.
Marissa Anaya, senior, attended the event along with the Rambassadors.
“The rodeo is one of my favorite volunteer events because after we are done, we get to sit and watch the show,” she said.
Anaya said she watched the rodeo show and then walked the fairgrounds and tried different foods and rides.
“My favorite parts were watching the bull riders compete and riding all of the rides,” she said.
For sophomore Dyani Gomez, going to the carnival was a new experience.
“I had never been to a carnival, so I wanted to experience it,” she said. “My favorite part was trying a fried Oreo for the first time. It was good.”
Senior Chelsea Cole said her favorite part was the Flipper, a new ride at the carnival.
“I went because I love the rides and it’s always tons of fun,” Cole said. “I went with my friend, Heather Hodges. It was nice to spend time with her.”
Hodges said she enjoyed walking around and seeing what the vendors were selling.
“I think ASU Day is the best time to go,” she said. “It’s a good way to spend your time.”
