Spring Fling was in full swing on Brandywine’s campus on April 27.
A live band, food, refreshments, inflatables, novelties, puppies and to top it off a fashion show took place on the campus lawn.
The band called Lost in Paris also known as the LIP’s entertained the students. They played upbeat popular music from well-known artist such as Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars. Randy Major, lead vocalist and guitarist, amped the students up for the last week of classes.
Along with a great entertainment, there was great food. Zac’s Hamburgers, a family-operated business set up a tent. The Zac’s staff gave out free hamburgers and veggie burgers.
Senior Chris Burton enjoyed himself.
“They were delicious,” Burton said.
Even though the weather was a little chilly, students also indulged in Rita’s Italian Ice. Inflatable and novelties such as a moon bounce obstacle course and human hamster balls were located on the left side of the lawn. Students were able to let out some energy by playing against each other in different games using these inflatable contraptions.
PAWS, an organization that helps animals, was also present and they had puppies. Students got to relieve some upcoming exam stress by petting various furry friends, along with learning more about the mission of PAWS.
“I think PAWS is a wonderful organization,” junior Julia Allman said. “I am an animal lover so it was awesome to get the opportunity to play with puppies today.”
Lastly, a fashion show took place near the fountain area. Meaghan Paige, a senior at Brandywine and designer, displayed her new spring fashion line. This line was filled with colorful patterns and illustrated a 50s vibe. Paige had Brandywine students, such as Hannah Rogers, model her clothes.
“I had so much fun at the show and I am so proud of my friend Meaghan,” Rogers said. “She is so talented.”
Spring Fling, filled with activities, food and entertainment, allowed students to relax and have fun before final exam week.
