On Thursday, April 16, Radford University’s School of Communication hosted a carnival in the MAC Court of the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, featuring tables run by various campus organizations. The carnival was free, open to students of all majors, and allowed attendees to interact with communication clubs and organizations while also enjoying free food and entertainment with activities such as corn hole, inflatable sumo wrestling, and a mechanical bull.

The night was a success, with many students taking the time to come out and relieve some stress with dancing and games. McConnell Library’s very own Craig Arthur got the room bumping with mixes of today’s most popular hits coming from his DJ booth. He got many in attendance to their feet by playing universally-loved tracks such as “Cha-Cha Slide” and “Cupid Shuffle.”

Student Media set up a table to promote its organizations such as The Tartan, ROC TV, The Beehive, and Exit 109. Interested students could visit the table, grab a free copy of any publication, and even win a free bottle opener for their keychain by beating staff members of The Tartan at “Rock-Paper-Scissors.”
