Check It celebrated its three year anniversary on Friday night. A group of students with the African American Center for Academic Excellence (AACAE) belt out TLC’s “No Scrubs” while the crowd sang along . The stage was open to any brave soul willing to belt it to their favorite song, and when the karaoke ended? The floor transformed into a sea of dancing students.

Check It is a Humboldt State student run program working to prevent sexual assault on campus. On their third birthday, the program hosted a “lounge night”. Attendance was free, and they provided guests with food, stickers, a photobooth, and a rockin’ dance party.
