This year’s Spring-Fest saw great success, catering to over 1,500 students at Westfield State University. On Friday, Nicole Gallup, head RA of University Hall, brought Forest Park’s Traveling Zoo to campus, with animals including but not limited to: rabbits, goats, cockroaches, a snake, komodo dragon, and hedgehog. Students flooded the green to meet and pet the animals.
On Friday night, over 200 students played Brown Bag Bingo, with the grand prize of a 32’’ flat screen television. Following the last bingo of the semester, over 300 students packed the banquet hall for late night pancakes.
Saturday was met with perfect weather, nostalgic live music, and a zip line stretching along campus. Along with other vendors including a fried dough truck, a smoothie stand, a photo booth, chicken wings, the Whoopie Wagon, caricature artists, Henna stations, and snap back hats, students celebrated the end of the semester in style!
Finally, over 350 students flooded Woodward to see comedians Chris Scopo, Matthew Broussard, and Andrew Schulz. The room was filled with laughter and good times.
CAB is extremely pleased with the success of SpringFest and wants to thank everybody who came out.
It may have been a little different than other Spring Weekends in the past, but they are so glad that students enjoyed it just as much!
