Eastern’s tradition of providing alternative activities for entertainment through First Weekend was back in swing this past weekend. Activities included an art festival, a soccer game and a free screening of the movie “Troy.” “It’s a great opportunity, an alternative to going downtown on Thursday nights. Plus, it’s all free,” said Darnetta Sanders, a math-education and broadcasting-and-electronic-media major from Lexington, of First Weekend. “There have been activities almost every night.”
