Spring fever has hit and Cabrini is going to be “Hot, Hot, Hot” Friday, April 23 through Saturday, April 24 for its annual Spring Fling. This weekend is infamous for being the highlight of Cabrini student’s spring-semester-social lives. It’s a time when the campus is full of people looking to have an enjoyable time. Events will take place 3 p.m.-7 p.m. behind the mansion on the lawn.

Spring fling is going to jump start on Friday, April 23 during a dance in Grace Hall hosted by Cabrini’s radio station, the Burn. The dance will be from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m. Students will get a chance to show the campus their rhyming skills during a freestyle competition during the dance around 11 p.m. or 12 a.m. The winner is awarded with a $100 gift certificate to the King of Prussia Mall.

Mark Tripolitisotis and Cathleen Scout are both co-chairs for CAP Board’s festivities on the mansion lawn. They will be assisted by many of the campus groups and clubs. They would appreciate volunteers to show up Friday at 5 p.m. or anytime to help set up. There will be three inflatable attractions, a rock wall, a velcro wall and a sumo wrestling ring.

Spring Fling for the first time is having an outside business food vendor, Fat Jack’s. They have college campus favorites, and new munchies to try throughout the day. Fat Jack’s concession foods have a unique menu with everything from cheese steaks and funnel cakes, to fried Oreos. Having an on-campus vendor for food options can help eliminate runs to Wawa off-campus.

Music will be blastingto a variety of beats with the local radio station Wired 96.5 FM, Cabrini’s radio station 89.1 WYBF-FM the Burn and a local band performing live. There will be a little bit of everything, hip-hop, pop, and your personal requests will make it a well-rounded success.

Don’t forget your wallet and photo identification behind. CAP Board will be selling t-shirts for $6. A Cabrini student colorfully and cleverly designed the shirt. “This year the shirts cost a little, but it’s worth it to dish outthe money,” said Tripolitisotis. The mansion lawn will have perimeters fenced off with a temporary orange fence in hopes to control the crowd. Cabrini students will get in for free with their student ID and guest have a $3 admission fee. Guests will be able to come and go as they wish throughout the event with guest passes to show at the gateway entrance. The college is expecting a large turnout to attend the event and want to make sure that everything is run smoothly.

If things get too heated, you can take a break and chill with frozen non-alcoholic pina colladas sold by Latinos Unidos throughout the day. Another opportunity to spend some extra cash is at a special vender new to Cabrini. A selection of fashionable accessories by Lunar Designs will be selling a variety of purses, and jewelry to go with your new spring wardrobe.

Students are making sure they are free for the weekend so they don’t miss out on a thing. “It’s the one time of the year that everyone stays and parties,” sophomore Andrew Mindnich said. “I’m hoping it’s a repeat of last year’s,” sophomore Christopher Leeds said. Upperclassmen have high expectations for the weekend because it is a tradition that the college is proud of having on its campus.

Freshmen do not know what to expect since they have not seen the campus at its peak. “I heard its fun; I don’t know that much about it. Spring Fling is intriguing, I’m going because I want to figure out what it is all about,” freshman elementary education major Jori Edwards said.

The fun continues on after the CAP Board’s activities on the mansion lawn with 89.1 The Burn’s wing eating competition at 8 p.m. This is an annual event that awards the winner with generous prizes. For those who cannot attend the event will still have the opportunity to not miss a thing by tuning into the radio. People will get the chance to tune in and listen to their friends on the air. Be sure to listen to the radio for any updates in case of a student scheduling alteration.

Latinos Unidos will end the day with their event, Azucar. Free sombreros will be passed out to the first 100 people and there will be a salsa instructor giving lessons followed by a dance contest. You can also win prizes that will be raffled off.
