Springfest and Okrafest

Joining President LaForge is Allie Rowe, coordinator of student activities.

Spring Fest, which is an annual event produced by the Office of Student Life, brings students together on campus for a fun time before the end of the semester. And, this year, the Student Government Association has arranged for the first-ever Okra Fest concert. Here are some facts about these two upcoming events.

  • This year will be one of the biggest Spring Fests in recent years, with various games, attractions, novelties, and a food truck.
  • Rapper Rich Homie Quan and singer Corey Smith will perform at Statesmen Park on April 13 for the first-ever Okra Fest concert, sponsored by SGA.
  • The concert is free to students, $15 for faculty and staff, and $25 for community members.

In other news on campus, the alumni crawfish boil will take place on Thursday at 5:30 PM in front of Walter Sillers Coliseum. As part of National Library Week, the staff at the Roberts-LaForge Library are providing an escape room for Delta State faculty, staff, and students at the library from 3 to 9 PM on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. This fun event brings people together to find clues, solve puzzles, and reach the final prize in order to Escape the Room. And, as a reminder, Go Green Weekend takes place this weekend, and I look forward to seeing some future Statesmen and Lady Statesmen on our campus for Spring Preview Day.
