Twisted Thursday Brings Free Beta Fish

Joann Wolwowicz

What is there to do at UNH on a Thursday night? Well, there is the obvious, but what if someone is looking for an alternative to a typical Thursday? How about a Twisted Thursday? Every Thursday night, the Office of Student Activities has an event planned at 10:00 p.m. in the Echlin Dining Hall, otherwise known as Bartels. Free to all students, anyone can come and enjoy the event for the week and just spend some time with other people on campus who are not already headed downtown.

This week’s Twisted Thursday was the second one of the semester, last week’s being the speed dating to promote networking and new friendships. The event involved free fish tanks for the first forty-five people and grilled cheese sandwiches served with tomato soup. Male Beta fish were lined up on a table and participants could pick their own plastic tanks and covers, a plastic plant, rocks, and fish food for their new fish.  You can learn more from Tropical Fish Care Guides. There were blue, red, and purple fish available for choosing. The event officially started at 10:00 p.m., but people were already waiting at around 9:30 p.m. By 9:45 p.m. there was already a line big enough to claim all of the fish. The best advice is to always come early, because items at events always go quickly and when they say limited quantity, they mean first come first serve. Nevertheless, it was another successful event on campus.

Too often people complain that there is nothing to do on campus and that they are bored. Well, a word of advice to all students here at UNH, “Get Out of Your Dorm Rooms!” Events on campus will not come to you. Everyone gets emails about things that are happening. Stop deleting them and go check events out and enjoy everything this college has to offer. By paying money to come here, every student should take advantage of everything offered at this school. This money was not paid for people to sit and watch TV in the dorms. Make your college experience worth it. The best times are always hanging out at free events with your friends, enjoying some food, and earning or winning free stuff. If it’s free what do you have to lose?
