Two Point Campus: 6 Best Events In The Game

Various Events in Two Point Campus

There seems to be no limit to simulation games, from caring for adorable pets to causing mayhem as a goat in Goat Simulator. Nonetheless, one of the most popular sub-genres of simulation games is that of business management. Games like Roller Coaster Tycoon and Two Point Hospital let players design and manage their own business, whether an amusement park or hospital.

With the release of Two Point Campus, players can now experience what’s it like to manage a university, from hiring professors to teach the courses to organize events that’ll boost student happiness. Some events offer better rewards than others, so players do well in learning which ones to host.


6 Cook-Off Events

  • Unlocked After Completing Piazza Lanatra

The Gastronomy Course is one of the first courses unlocked in Two Point Campus, so players won’t have to spend too much of their initial capital unlocking it. Players can take advantage of this opportunity to begin hosting Cook-off, earning them a decent amount of cash and Kudosh in the game’s early stages.

Players can host three different Cook-off events, but the fastest and easiest one is the Campus Cook-Off event. Gamers can start this event as long as the Gastronomy Course is at Level 1 and there are at least three students. Once completed, players will receive $2,000 and 4 Kudosh (one of the simplest methods of earning Kudosh in Two Point Campus).

5 Party Event

  • Unlocked After Completing Piazza Lanatra

Keeping students and staff members happy is critical if players want to earn extra cash and Kudosh at the End of the Year award ceremony. Fortunately, the Party Event is one of the best Events to keep everyone on campus happy, plus get a handy 10% Movement Bonus.

The Beach-a-Palooza Party Event is perhaps the best event to invest in, especially if the campus isn’t doing too well with Happiness. This event costs $25,000 to start and will last 30 days. At the end of the event, the entire campus will receive a 30% Happiness increase and the slight Movement boost mentioned above.

4 Cheeseball Match Event

  • Unlocked After Completing Fluffborough

The Cheeseball Match Event is hands-down the wackiest event in Two Point Campus. Students must wear a mouse-like outfit while trying to score with a cheese-shaped disc. But despite its odd demeanor, the Cheeseball Match Event is among the best events in Two Point Campus.

Players must complete the Fluffborough Campaign with three stars to take full advantage of this event. Then players will have access to three teams (in reality events) that can bring home a Cheeseball Match trophy. Players that use the Jumbo Mega Team will receive $5,000 and 10 Kudosh for each win, making it an excellent way of earning cash fast.

3 Talent Show Event

  • Unlocked After Completing Upper Etching

To host a Talent Show Event, players must purchase a Stage for $18,000, which is unlocked after completing Piazza Lanatra with one star. Players can place the Stage within the Student Union building on their campus.

Once placed, players can host a Talent Show Event for $10,000, but they’ll also need to have at least 3 Musicality Students. At the end of the event, players will receive $5,000 and 10 Kudosh. Players can increase the reward by upgrading the Stage as it’ll allow them to host a bigger Talent Show Event.

2 Live Music Event

  • Unlocked After Completing Piazza Lanatra

Players that want to increase their campus’s Happiness and productivity tenfold will want to host several Live Music Events throughout the academic year. There are a total of eight different Live Music Events that players can host, which can last from 15 days to 30 days depending on the event. Here’s a brief list of them:

  • Ripped Chords
    – 20% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • DJ Sue Chef
    – 30% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Honour Rollers
    – 30% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Helium Baboon
    – 30% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Boogie Knights
    – 40% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Alchemical Friendship
    – 20% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Shoegraze
    – 40% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Open Mic
    – Provides Entertainment

As players will notice, most of the events provide similar buffs, so it all comes down to what the player thinks looks “entertaining.” The biggest issue with this event is that the Stage may break (depending on the event chosen), so players will need to be ready to repair it frequently.

1 Cinema Event

  • Unlocked After Completing Piazza Lanatra

Undoubtedly, the Cinema Event is the best event in Two Point Campus. Players can choose from six different movies (events), each of which offers distinct rewards. Here’s a snippet of each Cinema Event and the bonuses they offer:

  • Funny Film
    – 30% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Romantic Film
    – 20% Happiness Increase

  • Western Film
    – 20% Happiness Increase & Increases Energy

  • Action Film
    – 20% Happiness Increase & 10% Movement Speed

  • Sci-Fi Film
    – 20% Happiness Increase & 10% Learning Rate

  • Horror Film
    – 20% Happiness Increase & Increases Energy

As players can see, each event focuses on increasing a specific factor of a student, so players should pick the ones they need the most. Hosting a Cinema Event varies from $4,000 to $6,000, and they only last 15 days.

Two Point Campus is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.

‘Great turnout’ for Point Edward club’s event

Close sticky video

Article content

A local service club’s event was supposed to go ahead rain or shine.

Article content

When Point Edward Ex-Servicemen’s Association officials looked at the forecast, however, they decided to move the party indoors just to be safe.

“Good thing we did,” said Gary Capp, the association’s vice-president.

A significant storm ripped through Southwestern Ontario on May 21, uprooting trees and downing hydro wires throughout the region. Despite the destructive weather, the club’s three-hour celebration, which featured a local country band and a fundraising meal, went ahead at 2 p.m. as planned, just inside their Michigan Avenue headquarters instead of outside.

Capp estimated that 50 to 75 people came out through the first 90 minutes of the event.

“This is a great turnout for us,” he said. “Some people just come in, buy the sandwiches and go, and other people are staying and sitting down, listening to the music.”

Kountry Krusin band members, and brother-in-laws Thane Hughes and Jim Stevens performed for the appreciative crowd.

“Just starting out, having some fun with it,” Stevens said with a smile.

It was a free event, as the club covered the cost of the band, but members sold roast beef sandwiches for $5 each to help raise funds for their regular donations to St. Joseph’s Hospice and local minor sports and youth organizations in Sarnia and Point Edward.

“When we have the money, we’re giving donations all over Sarnia and Lambton,” Capp said.

He also pointed out the club is open to all members of the community, so the public is welcome to attend any of their events.

“It’s not a private club by any nature, and all of our events are open to anybody,” he said.

The association, alongside Point Edward officials, marked the centennial of the dedication of the village’s cenotaph with a service on April 19 in Veterans’ Memorial Park on St. Clair Street.

Coping when current events bring up past trauma – VAntage Point

Coping when current events bring up past trauma - VAntage Point

When armed conflict arises — no matter where in the world it happens — Veterans can experience a range of challenging emotions as events unfold. This can be especially true for combat Veterans who may be reminded of their own deployment experiences.

Common reactions to disturbing events

Feeling distress is a normal response to negative events, especially those that feel personal. Veterans may experience the following reactions in response to current events in Ukraine:

  • Feeling frustrated, sad, helpless, distressed (including moral distress), angry or betrayed.
  • Worrying about civilians, such as interpreters, who worked with the U.S. military in the region.
  • A spike in symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions.
  • Sleeping poorly.
  • Drinking more or using more drugs.
  • Trying to avoid reminders of disturbing events, including media coverage and social situations.
  • Having more memories of military experiences and homecoming.
  • Questioning the meaning and sacrifices of serving in the military.

Veterans also may feel that they need to expect and/or prepare for the worst. They may:

  • Become overly protective, vigilant and guarded.
  • Become preoccupied with a sense of danger.
  • Feel a need to avoid being shocked by, or unprepared for, what may happen in the future.

It can be helpful to let yourself experience those feelings rather than trying to avoid them. Often these emotions will run their course naturally. However, if they continue without easing up or if you feel overwhelmed by them, the suggestions below can be helpful.

Strategies for managing ongoing distress

When current events bring up traumatic memories, it can be helpful to focus on the present and engage in the activities that are most meaningful and valuable to you. Is there something you can do today – as a family member, parent or community member – that is important to you?

Can you put more energy into something meaningful in your work or your spirituality? These activities will not change the past or the things you can’t control, but they can help life feel meaningful and reduce distress, despite the things you cannot change.

It can also help to ask yourself if your thoughts are helpful to you right now. Are there ways you can change your thinking to be more accurate and less distressing? For example, are you experiencing extreme thinking that views the situation as all bad or all good?

If so, try and think in less extreme terms. Rather than thinking, “My military service was useless,” consider instead “I helped keep the world safe.”

Consider more general coping strategies:

  • Engage in positive, healthy activities that are rewarding, meaningful or enjoyable, even if you don’t feel like it, as they can lift your spirits.
  • Stay connected by spending time with people who give you a sense of security, calm or happiness, or those who best understand what you are going through.
  • Practice good self-care by engaging in soothing activities, such as listening to music, exercising, practicing breathing routines, spending time in nature or with animals, journaling or reading inspirational materials.
  • Stick to your routines and follow a schedule for when you sleep, eat, work, and do other day-to-day activities.
  • Limit your media exposure, especially if it’s increasing your distress.
  • Use a VA mobile app by visiting
  • Try PTSD Coach Online, a series of online videos that will guide you through 17 tools to help you manage stress.

When to consider professional help

If your distress is prolonged or you are unable to function well, consider seeking support. At VA, Veterans can connect with compassionate professionals who have the education and experience to help manage depression, anxiety, PTSD, moral injury, complicated grief and other conditions that may be aggravated by current events.

  • Every VA facility has mental health specialists. Visit to find a provider near you.
  • Talk about your reactions in community-based VA Vet Centers, where over 70% of staff are Veterans themselves. Call 1-800-WAR-VETS or find a Vet Center near you.
  • Go to, an online resource designed to connect Veterans, their family members and friends, and other supporters with information, resources and solutions to issues affecting their lives — including challenging life events or experiences and mental health issues.
  • If you feel as if you might hurt yourself or someone else, reach out now. Through the Veterans Crisis Line, confidential support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, text to 838255 or chat online at

Coca-Cola and PepsiCo suspend Russia business, point to

Coca-Cola and PepsiCo suspend Russia business, point to

Coca-Cola and PepsiCo — two of the biggest beverage producers on the globe — are joining the largest fast-food chain in suspending business in Russia in the wake of that nation’s invasion of Ukraine.

Echoing concern for the people of Ukraine voiced earlier in the afternoon by McDonald’s, Atlanta-based Coca-Cola on Tuesday announced it was curtailing operations in Russia. “Our hearts are with the people who are enduring unconscionable effects from these tragic events in Ukraine,” the multinational stated.

“We will continue to monitor and assess the situation as circumstances evolve,” the statement added.

PepsiCo cited “the horrific events occurring in Ukraine” in suspending sales of Pepsi-Cola, 7 Up and other brands in Russia, along with capital investments and advertising in that country, where it’s operated for more than 60 years. The company will continue to sell dairy products including milk, as well as baby food and formula, it said.

Starbucks followed suit, saying it was suspending all business activity in Russia, including shipment of its products. “Our license partner has agreed to immediately pause store operations and will provide support to the nearly 2,000 partners in Russia who depend on Starbucks for their livelihood.”

“We condemn the horrific attacks on Ukraine by Russia,” stated the coffee chain’s CEO, Kevin Johnson. 

The companies made their announcements shortly after McDonald’s said it would temporarily close its 850 restaurants in Russia. Like Coca-Cola’s briefer statement, McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski’s open letter to employees stopped short of condemning Russia for its attack. 

More than 2 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia’s invasion of the country, according to the United Nations. 

While a broad range of companies have shut down in Russia as the Ukraine crisis escalates, McDonald’s and Coca-Cola were among those continuing to do business there. 

Both companies faced boycott campaigns on social media, while McDonald’s was among those getting called out by the New York state pension fund, one of the largest investors in the U.S.

On Tuesday, New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli applauded the move by McDonald’s and other companies to withdraw from Ukraine. 

“Companies doing business in Russia need to seriously consider whether it’s worth the risk. As investors, we want assurances that our holdings are not in harm’s way. I commend the companies that are taking the right steps and suspending their operations in Russia,” DiNapoli said in a statement.

More than 200 U.S. and foreign companies have curtailed operations in Russia so far, according to a running tally by Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a management professor at Yale University. He previously had listed McDonald’s and Coca-Cola as among the companies remaining in Russia with significant exposure.
