As the weather gets warmer, the events on and around campus get better.

Before the highly anticipated Spring Weekend festivities begin mid-month, the Curry College Department of Fine and Applied Arts is hosting Kelley Donovan and Dancers in the ARC Dance Studio on Friday, April 6, at 12:30 p.m. Kelley Donovan and Dancers will be performing “White,” a 20-minute performance.

Things get interactive on campus next week. A bungee swing is coming to the Student Center on Wednesday, April 11. You can take a ride and let the wind blow through your hair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On Saturday, April 14 all students have the opportunity to see Improv Asylum in Boston. Tickets are $10 and transportation is provided. A bus will leave from the Student Center at 5 p.m. to arrive for the 8 p.m. show.

Finally, to start off Spring Weekend, on Thursday, April 19, the Multicultural Student Union will host the Big Bang Event. The event features performers, a DJ and a fashion show. Tickets sell for $5 for Curry students and $8 for non-Curry students. All proceeds will be donated to charity. The Big Bang Event starts at 8 p.m and will end at 11 p.m.

The highly anticipated 11th Annual Mr. Curry takes place on Friday, April 20. Come see Steven Nicholson and Chester Li as your emcees as they reveal this year’s Mr. Curry.

But the best part of Spring Weekend is on Saturday, April 21, when GrooveBoston will turn the Miller Field House into a nightclub. Sporting a DJ, bright lights and dark atmosphere, there’s a reason why it’s everyone’s favorite part of Spring Weekend.

There are also activities around campus that aren’t supported by Curry College, but are free of charge. A popular activity in Milton is to hike the many trails of Blue Hills. This park takes about three hours to explore and boasts unrivaled views of the city. When you reach the top of Blue Hills there is an observation tower which students on campus call “the Boston spot.” Blue Hills also has its own weather station!
