Students enjoyed food, music, and more at this year’s Spring Fling held April 10, on St. Petersburg College, Seminole campus.
The campus Student Government Association served food from Einstein’s Bagels, gave out t-shirts, and insured that a good time was had by all. Students had the chance to wrestle on carnival-style moonwalk inflatables, and play laser tag as the DJ spun tracks. Campus organizations were on hand to provide information about the wide variety of student activities and clubs available on campus.
Among those present, SPC Seminole Gamers represented by President Brandon Conyers, Vice-President Maria DelGado, and Secretary Hannah Lahmeyer. The table was covered with games they play at their meetings, which are held every Thursday at 3 PM. The video game console on their table attracted a steady stream of students throughout the day.
The Web Arts and Visual Entertainment (WAVE) club was represented by club advisor Delynda Keefe, who was giving students the latest news about WAVE’s upcoming activities. WAVE is holding a video game tournament on May 6 at noon in the Student Activities room in the UP building to celebrate the launch of their new website. The club meets every third Tuesday in UP 301.
The Seminole chapter of the Student Veterans Association was there providing information about services and support that they provide to student veterans. The club is open to vets and supporters. Find out more about the SVA on their Facebook page, or by emailing the club.
The InterVarsity Christian Fellowship was on hand to welcome the faithful. The Sandbox News covered the club in March of this year. The club meets every Wednesday at 11 AM in UP 102, in addition to their weekly meetings they participate in a variety of faith related activities in Tampa Bay and throughout the state of Florida.
SPC’s study abroad program was at Spring Fling to tell students how to travel the world while earning college credit. The study abroad program’s next International Coffee Hour takes place on Gibbs campus on April 30 at 1:30 PM. Over the summer, students in the study abroad program will travel to Israel and Costa Rica. Check out what students have done on past trips on the Study Abroad blog, and see the program website for information about SPC’s Study Abroad program and their upcoming events.
Spring Fling is the last hurrah for campus life before the start of the summer term, and many of the students said that this year’s event was a perfect way to end the term.
