March Means Spring Fling

March 07, 2011

Spring_FlingAfter weeks of study and midterms, the annual Spring Fling celebration at University Campus gives students the opportunity to take a break, enjoy each other’s company, and participate in games, prizes, music, dancing and other recreational opportunities at our lakeside campus.
The event is a wonderful way to build community and friendships among the student body. Community is a core value of university life at Saint Leo. Faculty and staff from campus are invited as well, although selected activities require a valid student ID card.
The events are underway and continue through Saturday, March 5. Bingo–a Saint Leo tradition–is scheduled for Wednesday, March 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Student Community Center Greenfelder-Denlinger Boardrooms with big prizes available (a valid student ID is needed to claim prize money). Comedian Jen Kober comes to entertain on Friday, March 4, at 7 p.m., also in the Student Community Center.
Saturday is the biggest day of the week. From noon to 4 p.m., the campus hosts games and novelties, including an obstacle course, balloon art, student fundraising booths, and an appearance by VJ Kidd Leow in the “bowl” overlooking Lake Jovita.
Live music performances with artists Amber Lynn Nicol, We Shot the Moon, and Natalie Stovall are scheduled for 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. outside the Student Activities Building. Carnival rides and fair food will also be available.
The events are sponsored by the Campus Activities Board and Office of Campus Life. More information is available from Stan Kaszuba, assistant director of campus life, at or (352) 588-8856.
