A bagful of free candy is exactly what every college student needs to get through the rest of the week.

Back by popular demand, the Student Activities Board’s second annual “Candy Bar” event took place Wednesday, Oct 12 from 11am to 2pm on the University Center Stage. Bowls of classic confections, including Twix, Snickers, M&Ms, Three Musketeers, Mike and Ike, Skittles, and Sour Patch Kids were available to students, offering something to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.

The idea started with one of SAB’s newer members, Kyle Smith, who shared that candy bars were becoming more and more popular at a lot of weddings. The student organization then took the idea and thought, “If weddings, why not students too?” says SAB’s President Mark Scarano.

More than 150 students lined up at the stage throughout the afternoon to receive a plastic bag and fill it with as much candy as they possibly could.

Any future bar events? Scarano says, “If you’re a hot chocolate fan, you might want to stick around!”
