Grocery Bingo aims to increase student involvement

If you like bingo and food, take note.

A special event dubbed Grocery Bingo will take place Feb. 27, 8–10 p.m. in Johnson-McFarlane residence hall.

Those who win at bingo win groceries. Prizes include pretzels, chips and salsa, pop tarts, school supplies, sick kits and laundry detergent.

Megan Petterson, a senior who’s helping organize Grocery Bingo, says the event is designed specifically for freshmen.

“It’s a late night study break and a chance for them to connect,” Petterson says.

The DU Involvement Team (DUIT), an organization created last year to increase first-year student involvement in campus activities, sponsors Grocery Bingo.

“We want to ease students’ transition to college, support their academic and social endeavors and encourage them to understand and respect diversity,” says Petterson, a DUIT member.

Petterson says DUIT has another event called the F-Spot, a late night study break to be held Feb. 13, 6–7:30 p.m. in theCentennial Halls lounge.

“We’ll have pizza and some fun socializing,” Petterson says.

Students can learn more about DUIT by e-mailing or visiting its online newsletter, The Pioneer Link.
