With only a few weeks of school left, the Student Activities Council made sure to take it out with a bang this past weekend in the last First Weekend of the 2002-2003 school year. The warm weather brought students out for a friendly paintball tournament at the intramural fields and for the chance to be a kid again in the giant blow-up maze outside of Powell.

The weekend kicked off with Casino Night last Thursday where the best gamblers on campus showed up to play a few hands.

Breakfast was served Friday night by volunteers from the Colonel football team and Sigma Alpha Iota music fraternity, and the weekend concluded with the showing of the movie “Two Weeks Notice” at the football stadium.

“Overall, it went very well,” said Christina Thompson, First Weekend chair.

Thompson said an estimated 500 students attended at least one event of the weekend. She also said, “a tremendous number of students” took advantage of the free laundry during the weekend.
