On Nov. 14, Claflin University students kicked off their homecoming week with the “Pajama Meltdown” held at Panther Plaza from 10 p.m. to midnight.

In order to attend the meltdown, students and staff members at Claflin were all required to wear a mask. During the event, students were gathered around Claflin’s dining area dancing, eating and conversing.

The university's dining crew served chicken and waffles for the students. A majority of the students attending the meltdown were dressed in their pajamas. Live music was played and Greek members were strolling in the middle of the plaza.

“It’s good to see everyone come out together and have fun,” Maki Davis, a freshman, said. “Even though it’s really cold out here, everybody still

turned out here just dancing or posted up chillin.”

Donavan Bryan, a junior, spoke on COVID-19 and how he felt about the meltdown.

“So far, everyone is staying safe and following the COVID rules,” Bryan said. “Everyone can still get lit at these events on campus as long as they remain safe and follow rules to keep COVID-19 away.
