Mount Rings in the Spring

Ryen Sakyi

If students were wondering why the PAC was so spaced out with the garage doors open and more lounging chairs it's because of the annual Spring Fest!

The festival is a cherished tradition at the Mount, marking the new season of spring and Easter similar to September Fest in the fall. This festival is for students to socialize with one another and an opportunity to just have fun. 

The festival was filled with joy and laughter with activities of wooden Easter egg painting, cornhole, a fire pit bonfire with smores, classic board games and the activities that took the night. These activities include the cakewalk which is a remix of musical chairs.

The festival had a pink and green theme with decorations that made it look like a spring garden. It consisted of plastic Easter eggs and flowers on every table.


With the festival being during the Lent season, there were many foods that were available for students who are participating could enjoy. Vegetarian options such as tomato soup, seafood gumbo and dinner rolls. 

Campus Ministry, AMP and Student Activities planned this event to create memorable experiences for all attendees.

When asked why the Student Activities wanted to make this event happened, Jenna Scalia (C’25), one of the student leaders planning the event said “I was asked to help lead the event with Adie Bradica. We happily took on the roles and looked forward to putting our touch on the festivities.” When asked how they all planned this event Scalia said, “We followed the traditional layout as we have done for years we contacted the director of Student Activities Stephen, and we arranged for the event to pan out accordingly with their awesome student workers helping us out”. 

When being asked if they liked how the Spring Fest this year turned out, Scalia said “Every year, we try to do something different. But we try our best to keep it interesting. S'mores supplies were funded by the FOCUS missionaries, and the Mount Catering Team provided our Lenten soup bar, which is always a huge hit.” 

Acting Director of Campus Ministry Christie Preshan said, “We were excited to see so many new mountaineers here out here at Spring Fest and we hope to see you at our events in the future”.  

With the attendees saying that they had a good and fun time overall, the Spring Fest was a vibrant and enjoyable festival to bring to the spring and Easter season here at the Mount.
