This weekend was filled with great events mostly revolving around food and who doesn’t love that?! Friday night started off with a showing of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. While the majority of students probably already saw this blockbuster film, this was a great opportunity to see it again. Just like Catching Fire, this movie had a cliffhanger that makes us all want to watch the next one as soon as we can.
Early Saturday morning, the Math and ITS department put on a Pi-K. Students and faculty ran for the opportunity to celebrate Pi- day in a race to get eat pie. While Pi Day celebrations are held every year, this year it was special because not only was it 3.14, but it was 3.14.15, the first 5 digits of pi. To make the race even more interesting, they celebrated at 9:26.53 a.m. which are the next digits in Pi. This year was the ultimate celebration in Pi Day history and the Pi-K was a great way to celebrate.
While students still came out to the Pi-K in the rain, CAB wasn’t too sure about having Medieval Festival in the rain and they post-poned till Sunday at 3 p.m. in Academic Circle. Sunday was an absolutely beautiful day and it was great that they post-poned because it truly felt like Spring had come. Medieval Festival was complete with food such as corn dogs, turkey legs, corn on the cob, funnel cakes, soft pretzels, and root beer. Goblets were provided for students to sip and they were heard saying that this event had the best food of all events so far this year. The activities were great fun as well. From taking pictures in a stockade to jousting with friends and foes, a great time was had on Sunday afternoon.
In sports this weekend, The baseball team had three wins at home while the girls lacrosse team lost.
