Scores of student roller skaters pack Plumley Armory for rainbow-hued fun
Who says Las Vegas has a monopoly on neon?
Norwich University’s Plumley Armory glowed with eye-popping hues Feb. 19, as the Campus Activities Board offered neon roller skating. Dozens of students packed the armory’s upstairs gym to go for a spin, or a spike during the four-hour event.
Neon Night was one of a spate of events the board, led by Student Activities Director Eli Barrett and Assistant Student Activities Director Crystal Drown, has staged this semester to help students relax and mingle.
Senior Audrey Reeves said she enjoyed seeing her friends and getting some exercise — two very Norwich things to do.
“People get a chance to try something new or pick up something they have been doing for years,” Reeves wrote in an email. “There was a wide range of experience so it was nice to see everyone helping each other.”
Freshman Ceiry Lopez Reyes said merriment abounded.
“There were a lot (more) people attending than expected and it was fun for everyone there,” Lopez Reyes wrote in an email.
Reeves hoped for more skates next time to spread the joy.
“It seemed like there were a lot of people who wanted to skate and had to wait,” she said. “Also, I would make the floor a bit bigger so there is more space.”
