Spring Weekend has new events"This year Spring Weekend will be different than the years before," Steve Satterlee, assistant director of the campus center, said. Not only will there be several new activities, but there will be more involvement from campus organizations, Satterlee said.
"In the past, Spring Weekend has been solely run by [Student Activites Commitee]," he said. "This year we have enlisted organizations to increase student participation."
The organizations involved in aiding the set up and running this years Spring Weekend include Kappa Delta, Zeta Tau Alpha, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Phi Omega, Habitat for Humanity and The Brotherhood.
On the first day of activities, Friday, April 30, there will be an outdoor movie. "Animal House" will be shown at 9 p.m on the Degenstein Campus Center lawn. Popcorn and soda will be offered. If it rains, the movie will be shown in the Degenstein Campus Center Theater.
On Saturday, the day will begin with a barbecue by Aramark. The event will run from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the lawn next to Aikens Hall. Inflatable boxing, a gladiator joust, a mechanical bull, an obstacle course and human bowling will also be set up on the lawn next to the Degenstein Campus Center.
Meanwhile, guest Rory Scanlan will be performing from noon until 1 p.m., followed by the Poptart Monkeys until 3 p.m.
The Class Challenge will take place from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The challenge is similar to the MTV series "Real World/Road Rules Challenge."
Five women and five men from each class will be chosen to participate in a series of events.
