BLACKWOOD – Camden County College kicks into gear for Spring Fling 2013, planning entertainment, food, graduation cap and gown pickups plus much more. This event, which will be held on April 24, will be filled with fun for students and faculty as another school year nears its end.
This year, Jackie Tenuto, assistant to the dean of students and organizer of Spring Fling, has invited over 51 organizations and clubs to participate. Included are the following outside organizations: Sam’s Club and the Gloucester Township Police Department. Free food will be provided by CCC cafeteria staff, who will also be at this event. Some of the food items that will be available are: barbecued hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken and pasta salad. In addition, there will be cotton candy.
The entertainment will include a live band sponsored by WDBK radio 91.5fm. “Jamie Myerson, WDBK station manager at Camden County College, is the person who will be handling the music,” Tenuto said.
Along with the many venues, there will be a section for the soon-to-be graduates. There will be graduation cap and gown pickups, ring purchasing, graduation dinner information and photo signups available. ”It’s like a big fair, where students can come out and have fun,” Tenuto said.
Spring Fling will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 24 in Wilson Courtyard on the Blackwood campus. The event is free and open to all students and faculty of Camden County College.
