Students had photos taken with sombreros and mustaches to get into the fiesta mood!

Instead of a white sandy beach, the ground outside Minnesota School of Business (MSB) in Blaine was layered with white snow. But that didn’t keep the student commons on campus from heating up for a fiesta!

Sombreros, Flamenco dancers, and super nachos greeted the students, who were served by MSB-Blaine staff and faculty for the quarterly student appreciation day on Feb. 20.

Each quarter, the campus events committee plans a day of fun and food for the students. They bring in food, plan games and prizes, and invite the students to take a load off while staff and faculty serve them for the day.

“Our students get so caught up in the day-to-day classes and studying that school demands,” said Meghan Hathaway, community manager, and co-chair of the events committee. “We think it’s important to give them a day of fun, so we can thank them for being our students.”

This quarter, two sessions were held — one for the day students and one for evening students. Food for 175 people was provided, courtesy of MSB. Students mingled in the commons while enjoying heaping plates of super nachos, catered by Taco Johns. Flamenco dancers invited attendees to take photos with sombreros and mustaches. Photos can be found on the Minnesota School of Business-Blaine Facebook page. “Like” the page to see your photo and others!

“I think it’s great that the school does this kind of thing,” said Becki Borowicz, medical assistant student. “I always have a great time and appreciate it so much. Thank you, MSB! They were the best nachos ever!”
