On Thursday, March 21, Kean P.U.L.S.E. hosted its Throwback Thursday event from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Miron Student Center. The event allowed students to relive their childhood as most grew up in the 2000s, and also a way to have a good time as the second half of the spring semester is now underway.

Jahod Matthews a sophomore at Kean majoring in Marketing from Piscataway, New Jersey, tells the CougarsByte what he enjoyed the most during the 2000s.

“ Definitely the swag, there was a bunch of things I didn’t really have the money to cop back then like the ICECREAM Pharell pieces, supreme, Stussy but I cop it now because I’m older and I got money now,” said Matthews.

Founded by music mogul Pharell Williams and streetwear icon Nigo in 2004, ICECREAM is a subsidiary of the Billionaire Boys Club. The brand would become a staple in streetwear culture, especially within the fashion and music industries, as the line consists of hoodies, hats, t-shirts, accessories, etc.

Durval Pinnock a senior majoring in Physical Education from Brooklyn, New York, explains what he misses about the 2000s.

“I would have to say just like the music videos, the vibe, and the creativity were tough, I wish we could bring that back for sure,” said Pinnock

Pinnock would also go on to explain what he wishes today’s kids could experience from the 2000s.

“ Outside fun, riding bikes, manhunt, playing tag, football, barbeques, I feel like nowadays technology took over so today’s kids never got to experience that,” said Pinnock.

With the event, Kean P.U.L.S.E. presented multiple stations that would present 2000s staples. One station had slinkies, another station had hug fruit barrel juices students were able to drink, as another station had a spin-the-wheel game where students had to guess the app or game wherever the arrow went. Another station allowed students to decorate and keep their bucket hats and there was also an area where students were able to play the Just Dance video game on the T.V. screen that was brought out.

The Throwback Thursday event was a great way for students to reminisce about their childhoods as they got to participate in classic games, fashion trends, and beverages.
