2013-2014 Social Club of the Year: Entertainment Unlimited

This post is the first in a series highlighting the accomplishments of the organizations that have received the honor of being chosen as one of the 2013-2014 Clubs of the Year.

       Entertainment Unlimited had an exciting and successful year, full of fun trips & events for all Hofstra students! Every weekend, we provided free movies to students in the Student Center Theater, ranging from popular Oscar winning films to throwback favorites, and even offered a full concession stand of candies, drinks & popcorn! On Oscar Night, we even threw an Oscar viewing party, complete with free food, sparkling cider, a photo booth and prizes! In addition, every Friday at 4 p.m., we gave away free food to students, which was a big hit! Throughout the year, we offered a variety of fun trips for students, some of which were free and others ranging in cost from $5-$25. Some of our most popular trips among students included Once on Broadway, Six Flags Great Adventure, Kinky Boots on Broadway & a Yankee Game!

         In addition to regular on-campus programs, Entertainment Unlimited planned and executed some really cool special events for Hofstra students to enjoy. In addition to our yearly Burlesque Show in Hofstra USA, we added a Casino Night to the calendar. Many students came to the event, and enjoyed a free hot food buffet, a raffle that included an iPad, and a variety of Casino games taught to them by professional dealers! It was a night not to be missed! In May, we also worked together with Hofstra Concerts to plan Hofstra Music Fest, a yearly music festival held on the intramural fields that is free for all Hofstra students. Thousands of students came out to hear Young the Giant, SZA, ASTR & Vic Mensa rock the stage. In addition to the music, there was also a free barbeque & Red Bull, air brush tattoos, and inflatables, like a giant slide and obstacle course. This is by far our most popular event of the year, and everyone had a great time!

          If you are interested in taking part in the planning of trips and events like this, be sure to stop by our meetings every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. in room 143 of the Student Center. In addition, make sure to like us on Facebook (Entertainment Unlimited), as well as follow us on Twitter, Instagram & Vine (@HofstraEU) to keep up with our busy calendar of trips & events!
