This Signature Weekend, that occurs the weekend before spring semester finals, seeks to unify the college spirit and restore the morale that winter undeniably attempts to defeat.  Created in 1983, Springfest has evolved over time and now consists of live music, campus bar-b-que, a giant slip ‘n’ slide, and more.

Senior Week
