Football and Fireworks took place outside Morrison Stadium on Oct. 30. The event started at 6 p.m., with students having to check in to participate in the event.

The Student Leadership and Involvement Center organized the event Football and Fireworks for students to participate free of cost.

Chairs were placed outside the stadium while following the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for social distancing. Each chair was 6 feet apart. Other students brought blankets to sit on the grass.

The big screen showed highlights of football games while students were eating and talking.

The event had first-come, first-serve scarfs and beanies for students to take. The event also provided food to all Creighton students that attended. Creighton provided three different types of slider sandwiches and boneless wings.

“I choose to attend these events partly because of the food that’s offered and also for the activities that are here. It gives students a chance to have a break from studying or anything else I’m doing to spend time with friends,” said College of Arts and Sciences junior Adam Taylor. “Creighton should do more events like these because I think it brings students together more, especially during these times when we don’t have as many events as other years.”

Students went to the food section and spent a couple of minutes interacting with other students throughout the event.

“I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was really impressed with what Creighton had. They did a good job putting it together. They also did a good job socially distancing everyone with chairs spaced out correctly for students to have a safe and fun time,” said College of Nursing senior Ayana Gard. “I think it’ll be important for Creighton to keep doing events, especially during the winter, since it’s harder to keep connections with friends.”

Even students who aren’t fans of sports showed up to the event to have a safe and engaging time with other students.

“I’m not a big fan of sports, but I’m here because I like the fireworks the most,” said College of Arts and Sciences freshman Jason Cao.
