Fall carnival kicks off school year

The Student Activities Board will start the school year off right with a weekend of events. And it is all free.

Friday, Sept. 3, the Fall Carnival will take over the softball field from 5 to 8 p.m. There will be a giant inflatable obstacle course, a DUI simulator, face painting, a deejay and a dunk tank, just to name a few cool features. Also, local banks and other sponsors will be giving away prizes, one grand prize valued up to $400.

Saturday will provide students with a chance to get off of campus with their friends. Eastern vans will be taking people to either Seaside Heights Beach, N.J. or the Revelation Generation concert in Frenchtown, N.J. The vans will depart from a to be determined location at 9 a.m., and transportation is free.

Starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday, movies will show back-to-back in the McInnis Auditorium. “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” will open the afternoon, followed by the romantic comedy “Just Wright,” starring Queen Latifah, and the evening will wrap up with “Avatar.”

The KaGe kick-off will end the weekend’s festivities on Monday night from 4 p.m. to midnight. The KaGe, located in Kea-Guffin Hall, houses the only full kitchen on campus available to all students. KaGe also features a lounge space and board games, two laptops, a Wii, an Xbox 360, air hockey, foosball and a pool table. The space also offers discounted movie tickets for students and staff. Prizes will be awarded and food will be available.
