Even college students cannot resist the excitement of hunting the Easter eggs on campus provided by Student Activities and participating in the library’s “It’s Easter, Fool” event.
Alejandra Perez, sophomore nursing major from Ennis, said, “I know that many students really enjoyed hunting for eggs, and seeing students actually searching around campus was quite entertaining in its self.”
The festivities began Monday morning, and went through Thursday. Students hunted Easter eggs hidden all over campus, and if they found one then they turned it in and receive a prize. One of the prizes was a new pair of Chaco Sandals.
Hailey McNally, sophomore speech pathology major from Abilene, said, “This week was a lot of fun. It was cool to see quite a few students around campus looking for the eggs. I really wanted to be the one that won but it was still fun trying to find it!”
The library also hosted “It’s Easter, Fool,” starting Monday and ending on April Fool’s Day. Students could take pictures in a photo booth and also guess how many robin eggs were in two containers at the circulation desk. On Wednesday, students participated in a “Chubby Bunny” contest which is designed to see just how many large marshmallows one could fit into their mouth and still be able to say the words “chubby bunny.” The Library also gave students the opportunity to decorate cookies and later announced the winner of the gift basket for guessing the amount of robin eggs.
Stephen Lewis, senior criminal justice major from Burleson, said, “As the end of the semester draws near, it's nice to have some laid back activities to participate in and enjoy. It was quite entertaining to watch people see how many marshmallows they could put in their mouth while trying to say "Chubby Bunny.”
