Ouachita Baptist University’s Campus Activities Board (CAB) will host the 2010 Spring Fling this weekend, April 9 and 10, in Ouachita’s Grant Plaza.
Tim Harrell, Ouachita director of campus activities, has been working with the members of CAB to prepare for the event. “Spring Fling gives everyone a chance to put the books down for an afternoon, venture outside and enjoy the outdoors,” Harrell said.
Spring Fling offers a variety of both old and new events for students to participate in. On Friday, April 9, events will begin at 3 p.m. and will include: inflatables, a velcro wall, a bungee run and a mechanical bull. In addition, the movie “Leap Year” will be shown at 8:30 p.m. in the amphitheatre.
After lunch on Saturday, April 10, Spring Fling will continue following Tiger Serve Day activities. Campus organizations will set up booths offering root beer floats, face painting, sno cones and more. That night, CAB will host Ouachita’s first campus-wide Battle of the Bands. The winning band will be determined by a popular vote and will receive a cash prize of $200.
“Spring Fling is one of our top two biggest events of the year,” said CAB President Madison O’Connor, a junior political science and sociology double major from Louisville, Colo. “As a CAB team we have spent many hours beginning at the start of the semester planning and coordinating to make this year’s Spring Fling better than ever.”
Spring Fling is free and open to all Ouachita students, faculty and staff and their families. “We hope to have a few hundred students out as well as faculty and staff families,” Harrell said.
