Western Recreational Services hosted a free open skate for Western students at Danbury Ice Arena last Friday.
Directly after the Danbury Titans game, students hit the ice from 10 pm to 12 am, with music, free refreshments, and skate rentals provided. Shuttle service was also available to and from the arena.
The ice was brimming with students of all skill levels, from beginners to seasoned skaters. Though there were a few falls and bumps along the way, the night was full of energy and fun.
The free skate was part of Rec After Dark, which provides opportunities for Western students to get together for fun night-time events. Past events have included a free skate session last semester, as well as a “Glow” event featuring laser tag, glow-in-the-dark dodgeball and Zumba in Berkshire Hall.
“It was really fun to go back and ice skate after last semester,” said Sarah Hoffkins, a junior at Western. “I really hope that it keeps going on!”
