CSUMB hosts MB Madness

Students celebrated recreation and athletics during the MB Madness event hosted by California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) on Oct. 14. It was a night full of games, performances and local food vendors in the Otter Sports Center parking lot.

Timothy Collins, the Senior Coordinator of Recreation, welcomed attendees while operating as the event disc jockey, playing live music and keeping the atmosphere booming. 

Kona Ice, Tacos Don Beto and Toasted Artisan Grilled Cheese food trucks were stationed around the lot, providing refreshments and cooked items. 

The Otter Dance Team put on two electric performances, showcasing talent and dedication to their craft. 

Students erupted when Monte Rey, CSUMB’s official mascot, arrived in style, interacting with fans and taking photos. 

The crowd gathered around CSUMB basketball athletes and volunteers, as they competed in a five-minute shooting contest, forming Team Navy and Team Gold.

The corn hole station was a competitive attraction. Participants successful in making three shots or more were entered to win prizes. 

The Monterey Bay Football Club held a booth at the event. Head Coach Frank Yallop and President Mike DiGiulo made an appearance to show their support. 

MB Madness brought the campus community a level of normalcy, breathing energy and in-person engagement back to the university.
