Saturday, April 9, the University’s Campus Activities Board hosted Lawn-a-palooza, a free event open to students and the Searcy community. Lawn-a-palooza featured live music of Four West and The Medders in addition to student performers, local bands and a faculty band.
“Lawn-a-palooza is an event inspired by students,” Director of Campus Life Logan Light said. “When my team met earlier this semester, several members of CAB had the idea of having an event that would be similar to a giant Harding club function. It would be a little bit of something for everyone. I think we have accomplished what we set out to do and more. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
In addition to live music, the event included free food, giveaways, games and a mechanical bull. A student-organized fundraiser provided an interactive game, and all of the proceeds went to the Sam Winchester Autism Awareness Connected Scholarship.
