From 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. on Sept. 19 in the parking lot outside of Eugene D. McMahon Library, the
Office of Events and Activities held a free mini donut giveaway. Jimmy’s Bag of Donuts, a local
food truck business, was giving out the mini donuts.
Cameron students and faculty could choose from any of the donut flavors and toppings that the
vendor had to offer. This was anywhere from the regular flavors like glaze, strawberry, or
chocolate to more uncommon flavors like cinnamon roll, cinnamon toast crunch, and chocolate,
caramel sea salt.
To get donuts, students had to scan a QR code, fill out a Google form, and show their student ID.
Cameron students paid for the free giveaway with the student activity fees in their billing every
Director of the Office of Events and Activities Leslie Cothren said the events are a way for
students to see their activity fees in action and it usually gets a good turnout.
This giveaway is one of many events that take place on campus throughout the fall and spring
semesters by the Office of Events and Activities, formerly known as the Office of Student Life.
“We do free giveaways once a month. So, there will be three throughout the semester, but this is
the only donut one. I like to give people options,” Cothren said.
Many students waited in line before class in the overcast weather to snag some free, warm,
One of these students was Sofia Adams, a concurrent Cameron student and senior at Geronimo
Adams waited in the long line for a specific reason.
“I like donuts and I like free things.”
The next events that the Office of Events and Activities will be holding will be throughout the
month of October.
“We will do some online things, but our next in-person event is probable, we’re thinking about
probably a student organization fair in October and another giveaway later in October. Free
swag,” Cothren said.
