Did you survive Assumption College’s Siblings’ Weekend? Students and their siblings enjoyed a taste of the tropics despite being in New England in February. The Campus Activities Board kicked off the weekend with bingo in Taylor Dining Hall. Over 70 siblings joined us on Friday for a chance to win some of our amazing prizes. Our lucky winners went home with two Best Buy gift cards, a full Harry Potter series, a Nook Color, Dr. Dre Beatz or a video camera.
Students and siblings then joined us for the Tribal Council Friday night entertainment. Attendants could choose to go upstairs to the Hagan Campus Center Hall to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two while enjoying pizza, popcorn and candy or go downstairs to Charlie’s where they could make their own sundaes and play games. With all the fun choices offered on Friday night, everyone had a blast.
Saturday began at noon in Plourde with a luau. Students and their siblings enjoyed the Siblings’ Weekend’s classic carnival with a tropical twist. Students raised their siblings up the tiki rock wall or down the Wipe Out inflatable slide. Those in attendance enjoyed game provided during the carnival including the shark attack sling shot and Assumption College mini golf. Students and siblings got to make their own fish tanks to take home as well as a personalized post card with one of six tropical sceneries. And of course, what would a luau be without a tropical smoothie bar with a variety of fruity flavors? Siblings also enjoyed our amazing juggler and balloon artist taking requests throughout the event.
CAB would also like to thank all the organizations that helped out during the carnival. Siblings had a blast tye-dying t-shirts with Student Government Association, getting their face painted by Resident Hall Association and having their hair braided by the African/ Latino-Hispanic/ Asian/ Native American Network.
The fun did not stop there. Students and siblings joined us back in Plourde to watch the amazing comedic variety act, Campus Chaos. Performing their show entitled, “Juggle This,” the duo awed the crowd with their tricks and left them laughing with their hilarious commentary.
On Saturday, February 25, students enjoyed singer/songwriter Preston Pugmire in Charlie’s. Pugmire used a mixture of instruments and machines to create a unique sound in his one-man band. Singing some classic songs students could sing along to, Pugmire was a hit with Assumption students. Students enjoyed a variety of free food while enjoying the musical performance.
