While the weather may not have agreed with the name, last week was our Spring Fling. Campus was busy with many activities including: Minute to Win It, Ultimate Spoons, Iron Chef, and the ever popular Bubbert Awards.
Other activities scheduled were PowderPuff football and Limeades that had to be postponed because of the weather, which refused to cooperate cancelling the water fight that was scheduled for that Friday as well.
However, Bubbert Awards and the dessert bar was still able to be held! Bubbert Awards is an annual film festival at Bethel that showcases student-made videos. The event was created in spirit of Bethel’s ficticious student, Herman Bubbert, who was known for playing pranks all over campus.
Bubbert Awards takes the form of a Red Carpet event, allowing students to dress up and take part in watching the wide variety of films.
This year there were 11 entries, some inspiring, others hilarious, but all creative. If you would like to watch the video, you can visit this link http://vimeo.com/64145221 which shows the entire show with the hosts and audience members.
Following the Bubbert Awards is a dance that typically lasts a few hours and this year was in the Drama Lab, with student DJ’s.
Spring Fling is always a good time on Bethel’s campus, even if the weather is not “spring” like.
