The annual Springfest celebration, hosted by UCPC, brought an array of talent on campuslast week.

Club Café hosted comedian Jessi Campbell on Wednesday, March 29, in conjunction with Springfest.

The University Center was filled with laughter as students were more than happy to catch a break from the spring semester.

"It was a great show," Jackson Colburn, freshman, said. "The UCPC provided a great distraction from school."

In addition to performing on stage at colleges, clubs and military bases, Campbell was also a finalist on CMT’s "Next Big Comic" and performed on NBC’s "Last Comic Standing."

For her humor, Campbell has been awarded 2015 Best Female Performer of the Year by Campus Activities Magazine and was the People’s Choice winner at the 2009 Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival.

"Jessi was a really good performer to start off Spring Fest," Rosie Cadena, sophomore, said.

After a show, the adrenaline rush can be quite high, so Campbell enjoys climbing into her pajamas and watching Netflix to physically rest and relax.

"My favorite part about performing is being able to connect with people after the show," Campbell said. "I love talking to people and knowing that I am able to make them feel better. That’s really what this is all about."

Following up the comedic performance was Anthem Lights, a Christian band that extends their music stylings into pop covers.

They performed for a little over an hour and took pictures with fans.

"I heard a lot of positive responses from the students, mainly girls, but they were all positive," Medina said.

Medina was in charge of the concert and believed all the hard work paid off.

"This was the first year we decided to try a SnapChat filter for each event and that was pretty cool," Medina said.

Freshman member of UCPC Alexandra Haag said she thought the concert was really cool.

"I really enjoyed Anthem Lights and thought it was awesome we got them," Haag said.

On Thursday, the Korean Student Association held a glow party in the UC Ram Room where they handed out glow sticks and necklaces to students as they played music and danced.

Sohee Youn, President of the Korean Student Association, said she enjoyed the event.

"I really like these events because we mix the Korean songs and American songs to let local and international students mingle together," Youn said.
