On April 1 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., the Student Activities Council held several Easter Egg Hunts on the Quad. At the event, a total of three groups had the opportunity to locate Easter eggs on the Quad.
According to Student Government Association Vice President for Events Claire Pool, each egg was either stuffed with candy or redeemable prizes from business vouchers to raffle tickets. If a student found an egg with a raffle ticket, then they could exchange it for a prize.
After each group was finished exchanging their prizes, they were able to eat different ice cream treats and participate in various games such as cornhole and spike ball.
According to Pool, the only difficulties event organizers encountered were having to run the event at three different times and also having to hide Easter eggs.
SAC member Kaia Hicks provided information on how the Student Activities Council made this event work with COVID-19 protocols.
“We were outside for this event, wore masks, social distanced as much as possible, and the Easter egg hunt was split into three different time slots,” Hicks said. Although COVID-19 did affect this event, I don’t feel like it made it less fun.”
Pool said she believes the event was successful and fun for students.
“I honestly believe this is the best event we’ve had all year, due to COVID-19 restrictions,” she said. “I think students were so excited to be able to feel like they were at a normal event- even though we still followed all of the guidelines. It felt great to be able to be outside, playing music and having fun with one another.”
