Cumberlands Campus Activities Presents Spring Fever

 


Williamsburg, Ky. - As the semester begins its final push toward exams at University of the Cumberlands, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) has announced this year’s “Spring Fever” theme and daily activities. The week of April 11-15 will be full of daily events and activities for students taking place throughout the campus.

"Spring Fever is one of my favorite times during the semester to enjoy the usually nice weather, spend time with friends, and forget about the end of term chaos!” said Cumberlands senior Jordyne Gunthert (Seymour, Tenn.). €It serves as a necessary break from studies and a chance to clear my head before plunging into finals week. As a CAB member, I get to be at almost every event, and I never like to miss a single one!"

This year’s theme “Here’s The Situation” (based on the hit television show Jersey Shore) will begin on Monday April 11 at 4:00 p.m. with laser tag on the band practice field. The event will feature a fully equipped inflatable indoor laser tag facility where students will be able to compete in teams against fellow classmates.

Tuesday April 12 will feature one of Cumberland students’ favorite performers, Frederick Winters. The mentalist, who has been seen at Cumberlands during recent spring fevers, will entertain audiences at 9:00 p.m. in the Gatliff Chapel.

The highly anticipated season four finale of the campus’ hit show, Cumberland Idol, will be live in the Gatliff Chapel at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday April 13. Immediately following the crowning of season four’s winner, students will be able to perform for the crowd themselves with the second annual “Live Band Karaoke” performances in Gatliff; an event where anyone in attendance will be able to perform live on the stage with the band. Both events can also be watched live on www.cumberlandidol.com.

On Thursday April 14, the Student Government Association (SGA) will be sponsoring “Cumberlands Movie Night” for students. Held at the London, Ky. Cinemas, students will be able to see the movie of their choice for free of charge thanks to SGA. Shuttle services will also be provided (more information can be found at www.ucumberlands.edu/cab).

CAB finishes the student-focused week in style with a new event on Friday April 15; “Dippin’ Dots”. Beginning at 12:00 p.m., CAB members will be handing out free Dippin’ Dots to students on the viaduct. An assortment of the popular brand’s flavors will be available to all students in attendance.

Spring Fever events are open to all UC faculty, staff, and students with a valid UC ID card! Many events are also open to the general public as well. More information on CAB’s “Here’s the Situation” Spring Fever can be found at their website, www.ucumberlands.edu/cab.

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; seven graduate degrees, including a doctorate and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
