What’s a year at Cabrini without a Spring Fling? It’s an affair that is a good time for all and a year without it would be a year without the fun memories this all-day party entails.
The hard work and dedication put into the planning of Spring Fling and its events are undeniable yet should go without neglect.
“That’s a loaded question and I can publish the book for you later!” Lori Iannella, a junior English/communications major, said when asked just how much she put into the planning of the concert being held at 10:30 p.m. in the Dixon Center April 16.
“We’ve been planning the concert for Spring Fling since the beginning of the year. First, we handed out surveys to students to determine what kind of music they want to listen to,” Iannella said. “We chose the band Bouncing Souls because we wanted fun energy…something everyone can get involved in.”
Five different committees including advertising, security, tickets, production and hospitality are working together to make sure the concert planning is executed properly.
“Everyone put in a lot of hard work between our five committees,” she said. “We want to build a foundation for years to come…so we hope that this will be a successful event to add to the Cabrini community.”
The concert is just one of the many events taking place at this year’s Spring Fling. Caitlin Scott, a sophomore business major, was involved with the Carnival planning.
“It took a lot of hard work to pull off the Carnival part of Fling this year,” Scott said. “We all put in our ideas to come up with the idea of the theme: the Best Fling Ever.”
Student Activities have expressed their goal of changing people’s views of Spring Fling as just the “fling behind the mansion.”
“This year, it’s an entire day of events,” Scott said. “Since this year was the first year that Fling was completely changed, we decided that it was going to be the best fling ever…it was a whole new idea, so it needed a great theme,” she said.
After the group created its theme, they tried to come up with a design that would leave lasting impressions on Cabrini students. “We went out looking for t-shirt designs and found one we liked…now we have ‘the face of the fling,'” Scott said.
With its revolutionary sentiments, Spring Fling should be a different and exciting event that will leave students claiming it was the best fling ever.
