Recess Comes to College
If you remember, last year I wrote about Puppies and Pokémon. Each year, Community Life puts on a giant Recess event just before finals week hits, as a means of stress relief for all us overwhelmed students!
This year, Recess was carnival themed! And boy, did they go all out! There were swing rides, a giant inflated slide, and this crazy circular contraption that you got strapped into and then spun around like a rag doll (I personally avoided that one!).
Carnival music was blaring across the front lawn as students flooded the event, faces lit up, and the fun commenced.
Along with all of the carnival rides were also lines of carnival themed booths…. everything from Mexican smoothies to a ticket booth where you could pick up a strand of tickets to use at the game booths (yes, we had those too!).
I was reminded of being at the Del Mar Fair, except that I recognized so many of the faces on the lawn. We had our own private Del Mar Fair, which meant short lines and lots of yummy snacks!
Someone experienced a stroke of genius when they decided to create this carnival. What better stress relief could there be for kids our age than a rush of adrenaline and a whole lot of sugar?
As the semester comes to a close, I am realizing this is my last blog of the year. That being said, it is fabulous events like this one that make me feel so thrilled about returning for more excitement next year!
Happy summer, Lancers!
