‘Let’s Get Physical’ with CAB


Students get physical by playing Twister. Unlike the traditional Twister played on a mat, this version was inflatable, making it more of a challenge


Students got their blood pumping at a Let’s Get Physical event, hosted by Campus Activities Board, UNI’s student-run event programming organization.

Here students had the opportunity to participate in yoga, Zumba, inflatable Twister, door prizes and a create-your-own water bottle station with healthy foods and beverages provided. 

According to CAB’s executive board member of the entertainment committee, Rachel Dohl, CAB geared this event towards those who were still trying to fulfill their New Year’s resolutions.

“Since it is still early in the year, my committee and I decided to do something that promoted a healthy new year,” Dohl said.

Dohl said that CAB tried their best to host an event with lots of variety. Students who didn’t participate in Twister munched on healthy snacks and made their own water bottles.

“We love to host recreational and creative events like this that are designed for everybody,” Dohl said.

The create-your-own water bottle table was popular among those who attended. CAB hired Neon Entertainment, who are able to print nearly any picture, quote, saying, name or Greek letter onto a water bottle.

Students created bottles ranging from the individual’s name, to a picture of their dog, to an image of Will Smith. The process to make the water bottles was a quick ordeal.

Another popular destination was the inflatable Twister game. Students appeared to be having a blast knocking each other over on the giant blow-up Twister pad.

Junior digital media and production major, Kinsey Doerr, said this was her favorite part of the event.

“They took a classic game and put a dynamic twist on it,” Doerr said.

CAB’s next big event will be hostingBo Burnham in Gallagher Bluedorn on Feb. 3. He is an American comedian, singer-songwriter and poet. Student tickets are $20 and public tickets are $30, with the doors opening at 7p.m.
