Texas country singer Stoney Larue will perform on campus Friday, April 6, to wrap up the Center for Student Involvement’s second annual Springfest.
This three-day event will feature activities across campus
Heather Valle, coordinator for student organizations at CSI, said shehas high hopes that the campus festival will be greatly successful.
“This year, students will notice that programming has increased for all three days of CSI Springfest,” Valle said.
There will be a student organization carnival from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the grassy area by the pavilion, according to Valle.
“Student Organizations will be hosting activities like snow cones, pie throwing contests and traditional carnival games,” Valle said. “On Friday, we are thrilled to partner again with the men of Lambda Chi Alpha who will host their 3rd Annual Crawfish Boil.”
In addition to the Angelo Rock Climbing Competition on Saturday, Chartwells will provide blue & gold pancakes for breakfast, Valle said.
“[Last Spring]was the first year for CSI Springfest, and our staff was thrilled with the participation,” Valle said.“The Sunset Concert alone had over one thousand participants. Students are the heart of the Center for Student Involvement. Everything we do is for them, not only to attend but to gain co-curricular experiences by marketing, planning and programming their own events.”
Samuel Mendoza, coordinator for student activities and programs, said he wants to see Springfest evolve from last year.
“Last year I was just a spectator, but this year, working on it, makes you set your goals pretty high. We want it to be enjoyable, and we want people to have a great time, Mendoza said.
