‘Just Because’—The Office of Student Affairs recently hosted a student fun day at the college’s lake/park area “just because”—just because they wanted to do something fun for the students during the beautiful spring weather and before finals. In addition to a plethora of ice cream, the students could relieve some stress on a rock climbing wall, a dunking booth, disk golf, ladder toss, and more. In this photo, students play cornhole, a bean bag toss game now popular at athletics tailgating parties.
