Fun Fair will offer students ideas for spring break activities

Students at California State University, Fresno can pick up ideas for fun, safe and meaningful activities for their spring break and throughout the year at “Get Out There Fun Fair” on Thursday, April 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the balcony of the University Student Union.

The event, planned and sponsored by student groups, will offer suggestions and opportunities for spring break, which will be observed April 10-14 at Fresno State. Students also can participate in sumo wrestling and bungee races and enjoy free ice cream.

Vendors will include African American Museum, Agape Playing Fields, American Indian Center of Central California, Gateway Ice Center, Herb Bauer Sporting Goods, Kinesiology Pedagogy Club, Kings River Expeditions, Recreation Administration and Leisure Studies Department and the Student Recreation Center at Fresno State.

The event is sponsored by the Alcohol Advisory Council-Student Subcommittee, the Social Norms Project, the Health Science Department-Master of Public Health program, Student Health Science Association and Associated Students.

“Since April 3-7 is National Public Health Week, our activities are particularly relevant,” said Tara Powers, a graduate student in the master of public health program, who is among the organizers of the Fun Fair.

“This is a sensible approach for overall wellness and alcohol abuse prevention efforts to show students that there are exciting alternative forms of activity in and around Fresno,” Powers said.
