Finally! Spring has arrived at Purdue, and with it, some amazing free events. One of the greatest things about a college like Purdue is the free events different organizations put together to entertain the students. This past weekend was filled with a ton of them! On Friday night, PSUB (Purdue Student Union Board) put together a carnival on Engineering Mall. It was decked out with classic carnival games, food, and bouncing obstacle courses. I got to eat cotton candy and delicious hamburgers all for free! I haven’t played some of the games, like a potato sack race, since I was in elementary school. The kid in me really came out and I had an amazing time! On Sunday night, Cary Quad sponsored a free concert, normally on Slater Hill, but because of weather it was moved indoors to Elliott Hall of Music. The concert opened with local band The Clutter, followed by House of Heroes, and finishing with Hellogoodbye. I haven’t heard any of Hellogoodbye’s songs for quite a while, so it was a great throwback! It was a great concert to unwind and relax before a hectic week of tests and classes.
