Surf’s Up at USU’s “Matador Nights – Aloha!”

April 16, 2015


Northridge—The University Student Union presents “Matador Nights – Aloha!” and invites all CSUN students to experience a spectacular tropical evening under the stars at the USU on Friday, April 24 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. for this Hawaiian-inspired party. Throw on your shades, dig your toes in the sand and get ready for free food, live entertainment, great music, carnival rides and Hawaiian- themed games at CSUN’s biggest party of every semester. 

“I am so excited for this spring’s Matador Nights. It’ll definitely reach capacity so everyone should get their tickets as soon as possible,” said USU Events Assistant, Stephanie Riley. “We really want to give CSUN students something exciting to look forward to as the year comes to an end. With the weather getting warmer and summer right around the corner, what better way to celebrate than with an escape to Hawaii!” 

DJ Butter, Nick Ferrer and special headliner, Havana Brown will spin top hits while thousands of Matadors dance the night away. In addition, students will see the true spirit of Hawaii with classic Polynesian dancers, live ukulele performers and hula dance lessons. 

You can knock the little white ball around a 5-star mini golf course and win big at the island casino. Thrill seekers can drop in on the “Giant Wave Slide,” get rocked by “The Hurricane” ride or zoom down the Zipline. Hungry Matadors will also enjoy tropical treats and island nectar at the Tiki Bar. 

This event is free for all CSUN students with a current photo I.D. Tickets are available now at the A.S. Ticket Office and Sol Center Information Desk at the USU. Matador Nights is for CSUN students only and a CSUN I.D. is required for entry. This is a very popular event and students are encouraged to get their free tickets now before they are all gone. 

Matador Nights has been entertaining CSUN students every semester since Spring 2006. The fun late night event has included many exciting activities and special guests. The Fall 2014 edition featured DJ Sourmilk, DJ Justincredible and surprise guest, IamSu! as the Plaza del Sol transformed into a night out in the Wild, Wild West.
