Summer isn’t over just yet for the bulldogs of Ferris.
For the first time in history, Student Government and Entertainment Unlimited (EU) are teaming up to bring the carnival to campus.
“Student Government and Entertainment Unlimited wanted to do something to celebrate the end of the summer and start the school year with a bang,” Harmin Gill of Student Government said. “The carnival is something we thought everyone would enjoy and have a great time at because there will be so many different games and novelties.”
According to the Vice President of Programming for Entertainment Unlimited Ronny Latimore, Entertainment Unlimited strived to bring something fresh and new to campus.
“Lots of students said they’ve seen the same thing over and over again,” Latimore said. “So, we decided to do something completely original and different.”
Students can expect to see exciting games and amazing prizes along with refreshing food, novelties, and inflatables at the First Class Carnival.
The carnival will take place in the North Quad on Monday, August 25 from 12-4 p.m.
“The new Airborne Adventure is a must-do for everyone,” Gill said.
Although this is the first time a carnival themed event will be at Ferris, this isn’t the first time it was attempted.
“Originally, Student Government and Entertainment Unlimited wanted to do this on the last semester in spring, but it didn’t work out because of the weather,” Latimore said. “Instead, we decided to do it first week of the first semester because lots of new students will be there.”
The carnival is free for all students and will occur in rain or shine.
Any students are welcome to help out with future Student Government and Entertainment Unlimited events.
Entertainment Unlimited meets every Monday from 6-7 P.M. at FLITE. Student Government meets every Tuesday at 6 P.M. in Business 211.
“Joining Entertainment Unlimited is a great way to help out with events and meet new people,” Latimore said. “We also like to get student’s input on what they would like to see in the future. We want everybody to be well represented.”
The event is free to all students and is rain or shine!
