Penn State York Students Celebrate Spring April 24 - 28
Spring is here and students at Penn State York will be celebrating with Spring Week activities April 24 – 28 to mark the end of the winter and the semester. Spring Week gets started with offering students a ride on a mechanical bull on Monday, April 24 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the grassy area next to the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. At noon the band Redwood will play in the Lion’s Den and University Creamery ice cream will be available free while supplies last.
Tuesday brings "Jousting," from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., an outdoor inflatable game where participants can battle each other. Karaoke will take place at noon in the Lion’s Den and dodge ball is set for the outdoors on the lower soccer field. The week continues on Wednesday with a caricaturist from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Lion’s Den where you can have you picture sketched. The Ironman Obstacle Course from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. takes place outside the student center and a scavenger hunt gets started at noon in the Lion’s Den.
Spring week activities continue on Thursday with Wayne Hoffman, a mentalist and illusionist who will stroll around outside the student center and show off his amazing skills. For those of an athletic nature, a rock wall will be set-up outside and students, faulty, or staff can dare to take a climb. Penn State York’s Kendo Club will also have an activity outside. If you’re feeling a little crafty, stop by the Lion’s Den from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and make your own personalized street sign. The week winds up on Friday with a carnival-like atmosphere with a club cook-off on the patio of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community, dunk tank, cotton candy and free sno-cones. The club cook-off gives various Penn State York clubs to compete in a cooking competition and provide food to students free.
Spring Week happens each year at Penn State York with a variety of activities designed to offer students an opportunity to take a break prior to the start of finals week.
