Art Paz, a senior majoring in business administration, with an emphasis in sports/entertainment/hospitality management, has worked at DH sports lounge since winter 2012.
“The campus bar gets particularly busy when the semester comes to a close.”
Arantza Pelayo, also a senior majoring in business administration, with an emphasis in sports/entertainment/hospitality management, has worked at DH Sports Lounge since spring 2015.
“We notice now that projects are being done with and papers are over with, people will come in and celebrate [finals],” Pelayo said. “Students will say, ‘Oh, I just had a final, I need a beer.’”
Paz and Pelayo deal with a hectic work week and school schedule. They close the week with a drink.
“We celebrate like everybody else,” said Paz. “We drink a little, and sometimes we will drink here”
Pelayo emphasized that the DH Sports Lounge is the perfect place to not only unwind but, catch up with friends, classmates, meet new faces , and sometimes relax with professors.
“Well, honestly, we’re here all the time, whether we are working or not working,” Pelayo said. “All of our friends will ask, ‘Where are you?’, or, ‘Where are you going after? Let’s meet at the bar.’”
