Student Activities

About

From Fall Welcome Week, to Homecoming week, Spring Welcome Week and the annual Spring Fever, students will find a variety of activities on their campus for recreation, competition and fun! The past few years we have experienced the thrill of laser tag, mechanical bulls, water slides, bungee runs, gyroscopes, bungee trampolines and much more. We’ve been entertained by local bands, mesmerized by a one-of-a-kind hypnotist, had wax molds of hands, gotten free personalized t-shirts, air brush tats and relaxed in an old fashioned way with a drive-in movie.
