UWF’s Cannon Green featured three inflatables and information booths on Tuesday during lunch hours as the Residence Hall Association and Housing and Residence Life hosted a carnival.

RHA and Housing both had booths for the events focusing on promoting room selection and a chance to relax during midterms.

“I think it’s really fun,” said Courtney Urban, finance sophomore in charge of the Residence Life booth. “It’s a way to get our name out there and have fun with everyone before spring break starts.”

James Wiggins, telecommunications junior, and Hannah Booher, chem

istry sophomore, helped host the event through RHA. They both have been a part of RHA for two years.

“It’s midterms week, and everyone’s stressed,” Booher said. “What better way to relieve that stress than with giant inflatables?”

On the opposite side of the Green, Peer Educators also had a booth for the event. Their booth focused on promoting a healthy spring break, from fun-in-the sun tips to alcohol advice.

Tori Vanscyoc, a junior majoring in history, gave tips on how to do so: “Make sure you wear sunscreen and know the symptoms of alcohol poisoning.”

The Peer Educators program focuses on alcohol use, misuse and abuse education; sexual health education; and sexual assault prevention. For more information, visit their website.
