hank Goodness It’s Spring was a complete success this year. The warm weather, along with the amazing fair food and fun games made this T.G.I.S. better than the previous year, in which many events were cancelled due to the poor weather.
Brinser Field was filled on Saturday afternoon with a blow-up obstacle course, a zip line, a Velcro wall and delicious food for everyone to enjoy. Many students took advantage of this fun day on campus and partook in many of the events and games. Saturday evening, “Dueling Pianos” attracted many students back to Brinser field to enjoy the show.
“I thought all the activities on campus were a lot of fun. The food was also delicious and the weather was beautiful,” junior Brooke Morgan said.
T.G.I.S. events did not just happen on Saturday; the fun started Thursday evening. Thursday’s events started off with a “Stairway to Heaven” dinner followed by the showing of “Bruce Almighty.” Jamie Thorkowski, the founder of To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) spoke in Leffler Chapel and Performance Center, and later in the evening a “Knocking on Heavens Door” craft and italian ice event was held in the KĀV. Tworkowski was well received by students.
“Having Tworkowski come share his story was truly inspirational. It makes you realize that everyone has their own struggles and sometimes all you need is someone to listen and support you,” senior Hannah Reagan said.
T.G.I.S. had a broad spectrum of choices so everyone could find something they enjoyed. Friday evening’s events included a showing of the movie “Devil,” a boat construction event, cardboard boat rigatta and a casino.
“It was a lot of fun and I was able to learn how to play Black Jack,” senior Nadine Yunginger said. Hopefully next year, the weather will be on our side again and help to outshine this year’s T.G.I.S.
