As the spring season rolls around, MBU Student Activities is hosting the annual Spring Fling week on campus, running Monday, March 30, to Thursday, April 2.

“It’s a kick off to spring and our little Easter break,” said Anna Bertels, freshman, student activities worker, who is the mind behind this year’s Spring Fling.

The fun-filled week kicks off Monday with the annual MBU Talent Show, which will be filled with many student acts from singing, to piano, to rapping.

The event starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Pillsbury Chapel and will be free to MBU students.

First, second and third place will be awarded cash prizes, along with a people’s choice award. Students should arrive prepared to vote for their favorite student act.

On Tuesday, “Divergent” will be playing on the hill.

Students can enjoy the movie as well as popcorn, candy and refreshments while spending an evening with friends. The event is BYOB (bring your own blanket).

Dogs in the Quad is happening on Wednesday at 11 a.m.

Student Activities is providing this stress-relieving event where students can hang out on the Quad, pet some dogs and eat some dogs … hot dogs of course.

To finish off the week, after chapel on Thursday, “throw-back Thursday” is happening in the Mabee Great Hall.

Students will be able to enjoy some ’90s music, candy and a whole lot of neon.

Soft pretzels, Gushers, Fruit Roll-Ups and Capri Suns will be served as a throw-back to their younger years.

Neon sunglasses will also be handed out to students as they prepare for some nice, spring sun.

On Friday there are no classes, so students will be able to head home for Easter weekend.

Updates and information on Spring Fling and future events can be found on MBU Student Activities Facebook page.
