Photo of the Week: Commuter Week Date Auction

This week’s “Photo of the Week” comes from staff photographer Giancarlo Falconi and captures the crowd’s reaction to an outrageous moment at Tuesday evening’s Commuter Week Date Auction held at the Rathskeller.

(Left) Freshman Craig Contreras gives sophomore Antonella Valdivia a lap dance during the date auction hosted by the Association of Commuter Students as part of Commuter Week Tuesday night at the Rathskeller. (Right) Students react to the lap dance and quickly pull out their phones to record the show. Students could bid money for a date with the person up for auction. The date auction raised $1054 for the American Cancer Society. ACS will continue hosting events throughout the week, including a concert at Spring Chicken Thursday and bumper cars on the Rock Friday.
