All work and no play can make South Campus residents a little too stressed.

At least that is what juniors Kyle Blagg and Derrick Lewis believe.

The resident adviser duo set out to give students an outlet for their stress as they approach finals, and to help two local organizations by throwing the first ever Crazy Cats Dance Party onFriday in the Kirwan Courtyard on South Campus.

Although the air was crisp with the remnants of a cold spring day, the atmosphere was padded with lights, music and even a cotton candy machine.

Monetary donations were accepted for Southland Christian Church and canned food donations were collected for the St. Agnes’ House.

Attendance was lower than expected due to the cold weather, the RAs said, but the party was still filled with energetic students who danced the night away.

When asked why Megan Tiller joined her fellow classmates at the party, she responded, “So that I could support a good cause, reach out to my community and relax after a long week of tests.”

This year there were no official sponsors for the event, but Blagg and Lewis hope to expand the event in the future. They agreed that they would love to see the Crazy Cats Dance Party happen again next year, in hopes of bringing the community of residents on UK’s campus even closer.
