Cindy Lopez, library media technician: “Any special event that celebrates alumni and brings students together is a good thing. I think it’s a moral booster, I think that our students need an outlet for all those hours of study and stress, you never want to take that away from the students.”

The campus will also host a pep rally today, Thursday, Oct. 12, at 1:00 p.m. on the Library Lawn before the football game, where the EC Warriors host LA Harbor Seahawks at 6 p.m.
