Game Show week brought a lot of fun to the campus here at Cabrini. It featured game shows such as Don’t Forget the Lyrics, Family Feud and The Price is Right. Taking a look at The Price is Right, students were chosen to participate in the show by way of raffle tickets. Upon entering Grace Hall, students were asked if they would like a chance to be a part of the game. If they did indeed want to be a part, they were given raffle tickets that would be chosen throughout the show to see who would be playing the game. Once the first set of students were chosen, the game began. Students were asked different questions that involved Cabrini such as how much a certain meal plan was, room and board and the cost of a single dorm room in East Residence.
Caitlyn Canfield has been working with CAP Board for two years. She was a part of putting this week of games together.
“It’s a lot of fun,” Canfield said.
And she was not wrong at all.
The students in the crowd certainly agreed. They kept the noise up as they cheered on contestants. They even shared their thoughts on some of the questions asked. The students definitely helped bring this game to life. Without them, it certainly would not have been possible to have such a successful game show.
Senior participant Rob Riches loved the crowd and their energy. He also mentioned how CAP Board events are always a good time.
“I’m thinking I probably had a good chance of winning because I had my Bobby Clarke shirt on,” he joked later on. That wasn’t the case but he sure had a good time while he was up there.
After many rounds, two students were chosen for the final showcase round. During this round, each student had to total up the price of a few items. Whoever was the closest to the actual prize would win. The first place prize was a gift card to the bookstore here at Cabrini. Second place would win a gift card to Insomnia Cookies. Most students seemed to think that the real winner would be whoever got the second place prize.
Shawn Friel, a junior member of CAP Board, was the host for the evening. He enjoyed all the enthusiasm the crowd showed during the entire event. “Just when you see the entire crowd just getting into it and cheering and going nuts, that’s always a good time,” Friel said. Based on the excitement of the students from this event, there should be many more exciting times here at Cabrini.
