Although it doesn’t look much like spring outside, the Student Government Association and Campus Activities Board are busy planning Spring Weekend.
In year’s past, the most popular part of the whole weekend has been the Paint Party. This year, it will beheld on Saturday April 28 at 10 p.m. in the Shape Gym.
“There was a lot of hype from the first one and the second didn’t meet expectations,” senior Dre Trudeau said.
There was no paint party last year due to its lack of success and attendance the year before, organizers said.
At past events, the parties featured giant buckets of paint with super soakers, so participants are urged to wear something that can get paint on it. Streams of paint are seen flying through the air and covering every dancer.
Senior Saige King has gone to every Paint Party hosted at CU and has always had fun.
“I’ve always looked forward to them. The only critique I have is using something other than a tarp for the floor. Once it gets covered in paint people fall,” she said.
Organizers say the event may also feature door prizes this year to boost attendance.
There will be more to Spring Week too. The week will start April 21 with a concert.
“We really want to feature local artists,” Student Government President Izzy Gogarty said.
The next weekend will feature the Community Advisor Cookout as well as the famous Duck Day, a magical day where you search for ducks to win prizes.

Its purpose has seemed to morph over decades; to some the holiday being a meager door stop between Halloween and Christmas. The trek from Vermont to Connecticut, from Connecticut to […]
It was Wednesday night, the yearly SEXploration Fair was underway. The PAC (Peer Advocates For Change) Club had been spending a lot of time setting up for this event. Members of the club sat waiting for people to come into the room to see all the hard work they had put in. Smiles erupted from […]
It’s that time of year again, where everyone is bantering about when you are allowed to decorate for Christmas. The time where all the stores have Christmas decorations out right as Halloween hits, giving Thanksgiving no time. As Thanksgiving rolls around, some people start to decorate for Christmas. Others have already decorated and started their […]
Within the depths of the English department is a professor loved by many, and equally disliked by others. On the surface she seems very stern, and even mean, but behind that front, Professor Flo Keyes is as loveable as a teacher can get. “She’s wicked funny, and I feel like people can’t get past the […]
Over the past couple weeks, skunks have taken over the Castleton campus. Some students say they have seen up to three different skunks circulating throughout the campus and assume they are a family with one fully grown skunk and two much smaller ones. Students around campus have mixed emotions about how they feel about sharing […]
