To celebrate spring break, ASGCC transformed Plaza Vaquero into a Hawaiian dream, entertaining students with an onslaught of activities, including a limbo competition, hula dance lessons, and luau photo booths, as well as a giant tiki-style bouncy house.

The event took place on April 10, just before the start of spring break. The student government invited fire dancers to complete the luau theme. Dancer Evan Cantrell blew flames 20 feet into the sky to energize the audience. He and his partner, Natalia Chandler, then picked volunteers to learn Hawaiian dance moves, lower right.

After the dancers performed there was a limbo contest. A crowd of students tried their best, but it came down to two finalists, Marian Sarkisian, center, and Jacob Magana. While Magana fell over backward during the last round, Sarkisian deftly slid under the pole, taking first place and a prize of $50. Harut

Yerikyan, vice president of campus activities came up with the idea for the luau. ASGCC Senator of Campus Activities Arin Fiterz also ducked under the the limbo pole, top right.
