Utica College is coming alive with very fun events. This past few weeks had three activities that stood out, which were the drag show, Holi’s paint event and the taste of the arts. These events were really creative and many students had positive things to say about it.
I was apart of the taste of the arts event in strebel due to the fact that I am a chemistry major and there was a chemistry booth. At this booth, you had the opportunity to try some amazing tasty treats such as, marshmallows that consisted of three different flavors; coconut, vanilla raspberry, red velvet cream cheese swirl and vanilla. Some of the marshmallows had powdered sugar on them, another tasty teat option was a candy pearl. However, the main treat at this booth was liquid nitrogen ice cream. Everyone had the opportunity to make their own liquid nitrogen ice cream and put their tasty toppings on.
The Holi paint event in the quad a complete success. Many students, parents and children came out to support. Holi did a great job organizing this event, they knew how much powdered paint to have and they knew how much water would be needed for the paint to stick to the participants clothing. They also couldn’t have picked a nicer day to have this event, the weather was beautiful.
The Drag show was enjoyed by many UC students. It was the first annual show so, no one was sure of what to expect but the production was spectacular. I would recommend this events to all the students at UC, present and future. The anticipation for next years drag show is at a high. It was a really fun week at Utica College.
