BLACKWOOD – With April just around the corner, Camden County College students anticipate the annual Spring Fling.
Students are looking forward to another day filled with up beat music, good food, fun games and close friends. CCC student Pat O’Hara says, “The thing I enjoy the most is really the whole social aspect of this event. It is a good chance to hang out and eat good food with good friends, as well as meet new people.”
For most students, Spring Fling marks the end of the semester. It reminds them of how far they have come and how close they are to finishing. Tom Riley, a respiratory therapy major in his second year, states, “Last year’s Spring Fling helped distract me from the stresses of school for the day, but it also allowed me to realize how close I was to being done. It was a good chance to enjoy myself on campus, and I am definitely looking forward to see what this year will have to offer.”
At this year’s Spring Fling, students will be able again to enjoy free food, such as hot dogs, hamburgers and cookies, as well as music, giveaways, games and other fun activities.
Spring Fling also provides students with a chance to learn about the various clubs and activities CCC has to offer. All the student activity clubs will have stations set up with information packets and souvenirs for students to take. This will allow the clubs to recruit future members and make students aware of the programs available.
Most clubs will have games and giveaways to draw students to their booths. Last year the CCC International Club held card games, other clubs gave away candy, the Campus Press handed out papers, and many other clubs were giving away flying discs and selling T-shirts. O’Hara says, “I attended Spring Fling last year and I definitely plan on attending again.”
This year Spring Fling will take place on Wednesday, April 25 from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m. The event will be held at the Wilson Center Courtyard. Spring Fling is sponsored by the Office of Student Life and Activities and the WDBK radio station.
