Friday, May 13, 2011 Spring Fling was in the Air The last day of 2011 spring-semester classes saw MCC’s first Spring Fling, staged to “spring” our students into their final exams on an up-note. More than 1,000 students poured out of their classrooms into a festive carnival-esque atmosphere on the Lowell campus. Outside the City Building, celebrants were met by a menagerie of exotic animals and a band of acrobats who really flipped over the college! The event was pulled together by the fun-meisters in the Student Activities office and supported by the MCC Foundation. A cadre of psycho-delic volunteers worked the blockbuster dance party. Dozens of students joined with Middlesex faculty, staff and administrators to run the first-ever – and certainly not the last-ever – Spring Fling. With the gorgeous urban backdrop of our neighbors to surround us, it was a great way to break the stress and let our students have some fun before finishing off the semester. 128
