This week, Commuter Council is hosting TWO events!

🪴Wednesday:
Pot-A-Plant
1-3pm
Burpee Student Center Lobby

🌼 Friday:
Spring Fling
7-10pm
Burpee Student Center 2nd Floor: Regents Hall

03/18/2024

Only FIVE more days until the Spring Fling! 🌸

🌼 What is it? Spring Fling is Rockford University’s first annual spring formal. This dance is designed to give students a space to have fun and hang out with friends. Students can dress up if they would like and ask a date, come with friends, or come and meet new people. While it is hosted by Commuter Council, this event invites and welcomes commuting and residential students. Our goal is to create new staple event on campus that encourages students to let loose, have fun, and strengthen the relationships in the RU student community.
🌼 Can I bring someone? Yes! You can bring one person that doesn't attend Rockford University. The guest will just need some form of ID (ex.drivers license)
🌼 Will there be food? Yes, there is an appetizer styled buffet menu. There will be a charcuterie board, mashed potato bar, popcorn chicken, mini corn dogs, fruit and brownies.
🌼 Where will it be held? The Spring Fling will be in Regents Hall, which is on the the second floor of the Burpee Student Center.
🌼 What should I wear? The Spring Fling was designed to mimic prom or homecoming. However, we don't want anyone to feel like they need to buy something new for this event. Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
🌼 How long will the event last? The Spring Fling will start at 7pm and end at 10pm.
