DSU SIFE student organization opens laser tag business
The DSU Students in Free Enterprise group recently took on a new venture that will help them build real-world business experience. After raising money through selling local merchants discount cards and hosting a haunted house, the SIFE organization purchased equipment to run a laser tag business in Madison called DSU-SIFE Lazertag.
SIFE students completely operate the business and hire employees to work just like any other business. The Madison Community Center is the location for both the laser tag league and open play nights. Every Thursday starting Feb. 2nd, there will be league play from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The league competition is open to the public with five people per team and a $50 entry fee. The teams will compete for eight weeks with two weeks of tournaments. DSU-SIFE Lazertag will also be at the Community Center 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. every Saturday starting Feb. 4th for open play. The cost is $5 for 15 minutes. The DSU-SIFE Lazertag will also be renting equipment for $75 an hour Monday through Wednesday, $90 per hour on Friday through Sunday. Parents or guardians of those 17 and under will need to sign a waiver.
The SIFE organization’s goal is to affect people, profit and planet. The DSU SIFE club works with many local businesses in the Madison community, assists in city clean-up, hosts a table at the tour of tables for domestic violence awareness and participates in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program which trains students to help complete free tax services for those in need.
