Chelsea Gomez didn’t expect more than 80 people to attend SACA’s annual Speed Dating last week, but the newest SACA Coordinator was ecstatic when more than 200 people packed George’s.
Still, before Speed Dating became the event that blossomed, the members of the Student Association for Campus Activities (SACA) had their work cut out for them. Gomez recently became the George’s Coordinator and hosting her first event was an experience in itself. Picking up where the last coordinator left off, Gomez dove headfirst into planning.
The day of Speed Dating was filled with nervous anxiety for Gomez as last-minute additions were put in place before the doors opened at 7 p.m. The nervous anxiety that had intensified in the time before the event was replaced by relief as students poured into George’s and a line built from the door and wrapped to the back of the room.
