From CTE to Club E: UNK dorm creates new tradition that is easy on the wallet

UNK students are always looking for that one night where they don’t have to drive, and they don’t have to spend money. That night still involves the usual friends and can be found right on campus.
CTE has made it a tradition to throw Club E for students to dance the night away.

The RAs plan and prepare for the event; however, this year the RAs asked for more input. “We asked CAN to help set up and plan. It ran so much smoother with resident help, so the RAs were very grateful,” junior biology major Alyssa Helming from Bellevue said.

Setting up Club E takes two or three weeks for planning, discussing dates and times as well as decorations and entertainment ideas.

At Club E, event decorations ended up taking a few hours, but everything looked great. “The decorations included black tarps that covered the windows; paper Es that covered the walls and a giant E on the floor that was highlighted. Glowing water sparkled on the main table, glowing plastic string wrapped around the columns and white sheets with glow-in-the-dark paint covering the chairs. Helming said the black lights were key, adding fluorescent colors to enhance ambience.

Local rappers brought in from across Nebraska by  residents created “club” entertainment.

All UNK students are allowed to attend Club E, but the event is centered around on-campus students. “We probably had 100 people attend this year,” Helming said.

Senior elementary education major Joey Cochnar of Grand Island said she attended the event to have fun and meet others. “Although I don’t live on campus at UNK, I still like to attend a lot of the events so I’m able to meet other students and just have a fun and safe time. ... This year’s Club E was so fun. The decorations looked great and the rappers were an awesome touch to the night.”
