ULM Campus Activities Board hosted the free event that kicked off at 6:30 pm and the festivities lasted until 9:30 pm.

Students were able to enjoy inflatable games like Twister, Wipeout and an all-star basketball shoot. For entertainment, a live band played for the audience and students were able to get free customizable street signs with ULM logos made for a souvenir.

Bria Mays, sophomore biology major, attended the Spring Fever Hangout working a shift for CAB.

“We have a lot going on at this event. Everyone is socializing and just having a good time,” Mays said.

Candy Clark, sophomore pre-occupational therapy assistant major, said she enjoyed free food and getting away from studying.

“The pizza was pretty good and I attempted the inflatable wipeout game, but I sucked at it,” said Clark.

“This is a good chill night for students to come out and relax on a Tuesday night. Nothing too crazy; we’re leaving that for tomorrow with the Extreme Inflatables,” said Maggie Warren, coordinator of Student Development and Student Life & Leadership.

Hillary Goudeau, sophomore kinesiology major, attended the event with her friends to have a good time. Goudeau said her favorite part of the night was the inflatable wipeout game.

Warren also said that the live music from Blue Run Road is another unique aspect of the night. One of the musicians is actually a student here at ULM.

“That’s cool that we are bringing talent from the school back on campus,” said Warren.

Nick McCullough, a nursing school senior, is a Blue Run Road drummer. He says the band has a large variety of music that they perform.

“We play anything from 70s, 80s, 90s, to today,” said McCullough. “Although the event is just getting kicked off, I think there is going to be a bunch of people, so it will be a good time.”

Blue Run Road played covers of popular songs and kept the crowd of students entertained.
