“Springeth Flingeth” Calms Pre-exam Jitters

April 26, 2013

The annual Spring Fling took a turn for the medieval at the end of the banner 2012-2013 academic year that saw the introduction of graduate studies and the foundation of Residential Life.

The “Springeth Flingeth” theme roughly coincided with William Shakespeare’s 449th birthday and included turkey legs, minstrels, actors from the Nashville Shakespeare Festival, a House Life tug-o-war competition, and the inaugural AQUAnas Palooza slip-n-slide. Students took the “flingeth” part of the event title literally and constructed a medieval siege machine known as a trebuchet.
