Spring Day on its way

April 19, 2011

It may have snowed on Monday, but that just means we need Spring Day more than ever. Celebrate the (hopefully impending) spring weather, the final school days, and the sun.

Spring Day, put on by Greek life’s Interfraternal Panhellenic Council (IFPC for short) with funding provided by the Beloit Student Congress, is an annual Beloit tradition. Classes are cancelled and everyone is basically required to have fun, with free popcorn, T-shirts, and ice cream galore. It’s really almost mandatory to have a good time. And just so you don’t miss anything this day has to offer, IFPC Spring Day Coordinator Nadia Rashed is going to give us a little preview of the day’s slate of events.

Begins at noon in the 609 Quad. This year’s campus bands and DJ line-up includes a Blink 182 cover band, Campus DJ Adam Nicholas, Highway X, Old School Aquatic, and The Nicholas Cage Fighters. The headlining band is Wook, a group from Madison.

After a 10 a.m. Turtle Trot starting off at the college sign (corner of Chapin and College streets), head on over to one of this year’s most anticipated events: the Dunk Tank. Professors, staff, and faculty members—so far, organizers have wrangled Sam Strover (admissions counselor), Tracy Hazen (communications professor), Paul Stanley (physics professor), Kevin Braun (chemistry professor) and others. You will not want to miss out on this!

Other activities include:
Laser tag, frisbee spin art, caricature portraits, and a bouncy castle.
