Siena Heights Draws Student Crowd with A Carnival


Siena Heights’ SPARG group brought a carnival to the campus on Friday night.

The Student Programming and Recreational Committee and the Student Government put this event together. The event ran from 5 until 9 p.m. The festival featured carnival rides such as a pirate ship swing, a mechanical bull and bounce houses along with others. The event featured a DJ as well.

There was also had carnival food there, such as nachos, funnel cakes and a variety of other foods, provided by Chartwells (SHU Dining) food service. The event also had a raffle, which included gift cards for Applebee’s, Game Stop, the Siena bookstore and Red Lobster.

It drew in many students. Even when it just started there was already quite a few students there.

It was a fun environment. Students were in a good mood and excited. The SPARG event staff said they were also excited about the event and the turn-out itself.

The campus looked very much like a fair and smelled like one, too, due to the food.

SPARG said it hopes to make this event one that happens every year.
