It’s the greatest day of the year, some say it’s better than Christmas. I know I think it is.
3,000 students outside eating food, playing games, winning prizes, enjoying friendships, and many more things that perfectly illustrate a college experience. This is Spring Fest.
One of the longest-standing traditions at Canisius, Spring Fest traditionally takes place on the last Friday before exam week in the Spring semester. There is free food, games, music, and more free food (something you’ll pretty much find everywhere). Along with almost every undergrad, a good amount of professors from Canisius go to the festivities.
The number one reason that it’s a really awesome event is because it gets students relaxed and ready for exam week, and gets all of the current students excited for their next semesters. As for seniors, it’s a good way to say goodbye to their second home and life-long friends.
The number two reason that it’s a really awesome event is because of the atmosphere. Even if there is rain, snow, sleet, or any other form of precipitation, people are constantly in a good mood – something that is hard to find near exam time. This makes the weekend before the last week of school much more tolerable, and makes me look forward to having a week left.
