Bingo night was in celebration of Women's History Month

Eastern New Mexico University concluded its’ celebration of Women’s History Month with an evening of bingo on Thursday, Mar. 25.

The event, which was presented by the Associated Students Activities Board, was the conclusion to ENMU’s celebration of Women’s History Month. In keeping with the tone of celebrating women, the event was hosted by Dr. Patrice Caldwell, Chancellor of the ENMU System. The games were open to students, faculty, alumni, and anyone else affiliated with the university.

While the event was virtual, held on Zoom, participants were still able to play a variety of different bingo games. Each round, the game would change by the pattern of squares that had to be covered on each game board. Some patterns were simple like a straight or diagonal line; other rounds were more complex, such as spelling out “hi” on the game board or completely filling every box to win.

The first round of the game ended with three women all having bingo.

The winner, or winners, of each round received prizes, which Dr. Caldwell described as “swag.” The prizes included shirts, tee shirts, sweatshirts, caps, a mug and an insulated cup. The grand prize of the night, that was kept secret until the end, was a cap a gown, which was given to the only graduating senior that won a game. The winner of the cap and gown was Isaac Martinez.

Caldwell also gave a fun fact, which was that there is a higher percentage of women in the United States than men. She added, “they need us, we’re good heavy lifters.”

After the last game concluded, Caldwell said “this is an important point in the semester, you’re threw midterms, so let’s have a really good, strong finish.”

Though this event was officially the conclusion of ENMU’s celebration of Women’s History Month, on Wednesday, Mar. 31 ASAB will be playing the movie “Wonder Woman 1984.”
