Residential Living and Learning and the University Police Department (UPD) teamed up to host National Night Out Oct. 23 in the Phase II courtyard. The event included hot dogs, a live band, a petting zoo, airbrush tattoos and bungee jumping.

“Time with students and the community and getting to see officers in a different light,” UPD Chief Bryan Vaughn said.

Groups attending included UPD, Commerce Police Department, Commerce Independent School District Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety.

“Great turnout,” Vaughn said, “The committee did a great job.”

Kaylyn Costilla, junior, came from her off-campus residence to visit her friend, Maya Haggerty, sophomore, at Phase II. Costilla received an airbrush tattoo from Kayla Simpson, Dallas, at the event.

“It was fun and exciting,” Amber Perez, freshman, said when asked about bungee jumping.

The Wonderfuls kept the crowd entertained with live music. UPD Assistant Chief of Police Kyle Lowe complimented the band and expressed his appreciation for their participation.

The grill masters were Lowe and intern Dacia McDuffie.

Cathy’s Critters provided a petting zoo with goats, rabbits, chickens, pigs, a donkey and other animals.
