  • Spring Weekend

As the Spring semester comes to a close, the Campus Entertainment Networks Spring Weekend takes place. The theme of Spring Weekend is announced to the campus community at the start of week, and one way to know is to make sure you see what Roger is wearing. Spring Weekend includes the greatly anticipated and attended Spring Concert; past performances have included Lupe Fiasco and Third Eye Blind, O.A.R, Drop Kick Murphys and Ludacris. Tickets for the concert go on sale during the early part of April, and students know to buy them fast as the concert is often a sell-out. Spring Weekend is more than just the concert. Traditional events include Friday afternoon's Quad Fest, and Saturday’s Block Party and Fireworks. The Block Party is one of the highest attended events, as the North Campus parking lot becomes a carnival with rides, games, free food, music and dance performances. Many clubs and organizations take part in the Block Party by staffing booths and assisting with set-up. In recent years, trips to the Pawtucket Red Sox and Boston Red Sox games have been additional highlights of the weekend. Spring Weekend ends with fireworks over Mt. Hope Bay.
