Popular campus eatery increases community feel
THE SANTA CLARA
October 3, 2013
The first few weeks of class can be chaotic to say the least. Balancing a new schedule, a new housing situation, extracurriculars and a social life can be tough. Find time to wind down and simply enjoy the community that surrounds us at The Bronco.
The Bronco provides just that — a relaxing, interactive space to hang out, get involved and enjoy some late-night grub.
This year, students may have noticed that The Bronco got a bit of a makeover — both physical and ideological.
An upgraded kitchen, new tables and a brand new schedule of events make the eatery the new and improved nucleus of campus. Get a burger, talk with friends and enjoy the evening, Santa Clara style.
“Little things like karaoke can be a good way to raise school spirit,” said senior Gavin Zerbe, manager of Bronco Student Services.
“The Bronco can become more of a hangout spot and become the central hub of social life.”
Activities such as live music from the a capella group and a Pinterest extravaganza have been big draws for students in the recent past, but The Bronco is aiming higher this year in terms of its popularity across campus.
“I’d like to see the school attaining more school spirit, and I think The Bronco can be a really good way to make that happen,” said Zerbe. “I think Friday and Saturday nights in The Bronco can become more of a hangout spot and become the central hub of social life.”
The Bronco and Associated Student Government are both working hard to move towards this goal. The hope is to bring a highly social environment reminiscent of times when The Bronco served both as a place to grab some fried food and an alcoholic beverage, for those of age.
Performances, talks and fun ways to meet up with friends are becoming a bigger and more frequent part of The Bronco experience.
Make sure to come check out some of the events and entertainment throughout the year. You never know — meeting with friends and watching a football game on TV at The Bronco may become your new favorite way to kick back and relax.
