One of the long-held traditions on campus is Springfest. It is a week-long celebration and includes a variety of events which range from the ever-popular Battle of the Bands to Student Government’s Carnival to Shag on the Mag, a campus-wide semi-formal dance. Shag on the Mag brings a huge turnout.
For those unfamiliar with the term “shag,” its a type of dance that is typical to the coastal regions of the South. It’s about beach music and dancing as couples, a la the old days of swing and the lindy, but with a beachy attitude. Wikipedia discusses shag dancing online. This a wonderful campus event – gets the students outside in a tent on our beautiful Manchester (Mag) Quad, everyone dresses up and has a great night with live music.
Springfest will occur from March 21-26. The Springfest poster, shown here, has a full list of activities – from free ice cream to an outdoor movie to music and more. This will be a great week for your students to have a lot of fun and a wide range of on-campus activities to choose from.
