AITP Hosts Video Game Party

Released by OPSU Campus Communications on 05/27/2016 OPSUOPSU

Goodwell, Okla. — Once again the spring semester seemed to fly by on the OPSU campus while playing host to a number of year-end events including a student favorite video game party!

Hosted by OPSU’s Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) group, the party was a huge hit with around 50 students in attendance. Totally student led, the event took place at the Noble Center on the OPSU campus. Brackets were formed for two separate tournaments with one tournament featuring the always popular Mario Kart, a go-kart-style racing game, and the other tournament featuring Halo, a military science fiction video game.

Each student competing brought their own equipment to compete in the tournament and the OPSU Game Design Club provided extra gaming computers to be used for fun when students had free time. The tournament was held on May 5th and featured free tacos in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. It was a fun time for all with students from various departments across campus including Agriculture, History, and Music majors participating in the tournament.

AITP Vice-President Daniel Hernandez said, “We couldn’t be happier with how the party went. Everyone had a great time and we are so thankful to our sponsors for making it happen.”

Special thanks to 7x Burgers, Golden Crown, Quality Integrated Services, Mitchell Theatres Northridge Cinema 8, PTCI, TCEC, The Code, Urban Bru, and Wal-Mart for helping to make the party possible.
