Annual Funfest includes food, fun and prizes.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to support clubs and organizations at the annual Funfest April 22, which is funded by the student activity fee.
The event is 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the mall, scheduled by the office of student life and Campus Activities Board during Fiesta San Antonio.
“We will have the usual festival stuff like a DJ and a caricature artist,” Jacob-Aidan Martinez, coordinator of student success, said. “All the fun stuff.” Martinez is also this college’s Staff Council president.
The Campus Activities Board will have a dunking tank, free Fiesta medals and prizes.
“We will have a limited supply of 100 tank tops that we will hand out as prizes,” Martinez said.
So far, 17 clubs and organizations have signed up to sell food and drinks.
The Dance Club will sell fruit cups, and the Kinesiology Club will sell water. Both also will sell Fiesta Medals.
Students will have a chance to keep cool with raspas from the San Antonio College Boxing Club, root beer floats by the Catholic Student Association, sodas by the Asian Pop Society and paletas by the Psychology Club.
For students with a sweet tooth, Club AMAR will sell baked goods. The Gay, Ally and Lesbian Association will sell cotton candy, and Anime Otaku will offer Japanese candy.
Traditional Fiesta foods, such as corn on the cob, Frito pies, grilled hamburgers and grilled sausage wraps, also will be available.
Phi Theta Kappa honor society will sell tamales, and Cru, Christian Campus Ministries, will sell pizza.
Computer science freshman Rylee Eklund is the vice president of Cru on campus.
“We are fairly small,” Eklund said. “Our presence hasn’t been very large. We’re hoping to increase that through events such as Funfest.”
Funfest allows students to celebrate Fiesta safely and support clubs and organizations.
