This weekend has hands down been my favorite at Hopkins. Why? Because it’s Spring Fair! Ever since the fall when three of my friends joined the Spring Fair Committee, I had been hearing about the amazing fried oreos, chicken-on-stick, kettle corn, and blooming onions. All year there had been whispers about which artist was coming to campus to perform, and what the theme of Spring Fair would be. I was extremely excited to learn that J.Cole was coming to Hopkins, and even more excited that the theme was superheroes! This weekend has been so indescribable that I’m not going to try and describe it! Here is just a snapshot of what Spring Fair is like!

It’s a Sunday afternoon and this is the first time I’ve remotely thought about work all weekend. Right nowall I can think about is what vendor I’m going to choose for my last meal of Spring Fair.  I want to give a huge shout out to my friends Julia, Alex, and Anne who have been working tirelessly this entire weekend and this entire year to plan Spring Fair. I’m so impressed that a group of 40 students were able to plan and orchestrate such a huge event, arguably Hopkin’s biggest! Happy Spring Fair everyone!
