It was an old fashioned Pizza Palooza. "Well, maybe not old fashioned, and who knows what a Pizza Palooza is anyway? But it was fun," said Adams State University School of Business Chair Dr. Mike Tomlin.

The event celebrated the first day of registration. Hosted by the School of Business, 800 slices of pizza and hundreds of cans of soda were provided to students from all departments over the lunch period on November 3. Cash prizes too - five $20 bills were given away in a drawing for students who had registered for spring classes.

Tomlin said: "Our faculty envisioned this as part of our student engagement and retention initiative. Giving away pizza, exchanging high-fives with students to celebrate their registering and just chatting with students from all across campus makes for a good day, and we believe that the registered student is the retained student."

Cash winners were students Josh Peterman, Snowy Grover, Connor Schultz, Justin Bralish, and Katy Francis.
