After two years of pandemic-style student activities, Student Programming Council (SPC) is bringing Yung Gravy to campus for Springfest.

 

The SPC, formerly known as Ripon Live!, has been working hard to book a well-known performer for Springfest and decided on Yung Gravy. Yung Gravy is scheduled to perform on Memorial Lawn from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on April 23rd. Students are allowed to show up at 8 p.m.

 

Katelynn Kruse, the president of SPC, shared a Google document via email with the following schedule for Springfest:

 

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., there is a wide variety of events going on. There will be inflatables, stuff a critter, embroidery kits, giant Jenga, duck game, air plants, bath bombs, WRPN tie-dye t-shirts, flavored water, ladder golf, bottle ring toss, balloon darts, and a tarot reader scattered throughout commencement lawn. Groups including EGOR, La Unida, Pinky Swear, Alpha Chi Omega, and Ripon College Paranormal Investigators, are all sponsors of the different events occurring throughout the day. 

 

From 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., grocery bingo will be taking place in Great Hall. This event is sponsored by Res. Life.

 

From 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., music will be played on Memorial Lawn. A DJ from WRPN will be the opening act for Yung Gravy from 9 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Yung Gravy will perform from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
