Delta State hosts Springfest

On Thursday, April 3, students gathered in Wyatt Gymnasium for the annual Springfest.

Although usually held on the Quad, it was moved indoors due to inclement weather conditions.

Despite the relocation of the event, students were able to experience all that is Springfest with the rides, novelties and food.

“The weather tried to set us back, but it didn’t set us back,” Union Program Council (UPC) student director, Carlee Duhs said.

The UPC brings things to campus for students for free. Some of their events include, but are not limited to bringing movies, mentalists and the annual Springfest to campus.

“This year we have more novelties for students to take home,” Duhs said. “Things such as wax hands, sunglasses, street signs and more.”

Duhs said Springfest is like the Welcome Week held in the beginning of the school year in August.

This upcoming year, Welcome Week will include the annual foam party, movie on the quad, ice cream social with the president and a few new events the UPC plans to surprise students with.

“UPC is a great involvement that is open to everything, open to opinions,” said Duhs.
