The first week of classes was capped off by Foam Bash, hosted by the Weber State University Student Association, at the University Village northeast field on Sept. 1.
Bass music, courtesy of DJ Alive, pulsed as attendees mounted a mechanical bull, snapped selfies in a photo booth and dove down a slip n’ slide.
The stress of the first week of classes and the chance to make new friends brought hundreds of students to the event.
“This event makes everyone feel welcomed,” Weber State senior Chyanne Bull said. The high-energy, friendly environment from last year brought her back to this year’s party.
Despite the allure of other festivities, the foam pit and dance party were the highlight of the night. The neon-lit foam pit grew so large at times, bubbles spilled out of the pit and flowed throughout the area.
DJ Alive, who promoted the event via Weber’s Snapchat and his personal Instagram, fired glow sticks into the crowd during his set to the song “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled.
While Foam Bash was an opportunity for many to mingle and get a sense of what life at Weber is like, Foam Bash was one of many lasts seniors will face this year. Seniors Cortney Taylor, Trevor Hadley and Kambree Allen had never attended Foam Bash before.
“It’s our last year, and we wanted to experience college life,” Taylor said. “It’s going to be over soon. We gotta make memories,” Allen added. The friends’ favorite attraction was, fittingly, the photo booth.
Foam Bash closed the first week of school on a high note, according to students.
Ryan Perkins, a transfer from Los Angeles, was surrounded by friends trying to decide what they would try next. Perkins said the party was “lit, even compared to LA parties.”
