TWIRP Week fosters community through fun activities
Riverside, Calif. (Sept. 25, 2018) — TWIRP (The Women is Required to Pay) week at California Baptist University kicked off on Sept. 24 with a concert in Stamps Courtyard.
TWIRP is one of the many campus traditions designed to help students connect and form friendships. During the week, women have opportunities to ask men to join them at different social gatherings.
Kristin Holderman, director of campus activities for Community Life, said the week is geared toward developing a positive social environment on campus rather than just dating.
“We encourage students to attend these events with groups of friends and also with the intention to make new friends,” Holderman said.
This year the week’s activities started with a concert by My Brothers And I (a quartet pop band) on Sept. 24. Later in the week, students can attend an ice-skating outing, an Angels MLB game, a barn dance, a scavenger hunt and movie night, as well as a trip to Disneyland.
“Through participating in the tradition of TWIRP, it is our hope students build new relationships and a deeper sense of belonging to the university,” Holderman said.
