Senior Jessica Widdoes and sophomore Aliza Fahle celebrate Homecoming by playing craps at Casino Night.

There is more than one way to kick off Homecoming week, according to the Southern’s Campus Activities Board.

CAB hosted Casino Night from 7-10 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, at the Connor Ballroom in Billingsly Student Center.

“This is kind of a Homecoming tradition for us,” Craig Gullett, director student activities, said.

“It has always gone over really well in the past. Casino Night is an activity that we always look forward to.”

Students played a variety of games such as blackjack, craps and Texas hold ‘em.

Slot machines were featured for the first time this year Amberg Events is providing the equipment.

Missouri Southern staff and faculty served as the dealers during this event.

Students had the opportunity to win prizes in place of money.

“In the past, students have won DVD players, gift cards and mp3 players,” Gullett said.

“Students must present their student IDs to claim their prize.

In addition to the slots and table games, CAB provided a DJ along with a dance floor as entertainment for students not wanting to participate in the casino games.  

“We want to invite students out to have a good time. There’s something for everyone to enjoy,” Gullet said.
