Happy April: Things to do this month

Happy April! In my experience, it always snows one more time in April, usually around mid month, then we’re smooth sailing for spring.

As the semester winds down, here are some things to keep in mind to keep you busy this coming month (and into May: Finals start May 7).

Edible Book Festival

Noon to 2 p.m. April 2 Student Life Center gym
Students and community members pick a book and make an edible version out of its plot, title, characters, cover, or any other way they can connect it. The fest is full of cakes, yes, but there’s usually a savory option or two to balance the sweet. Check out everyone’s creations for the first hour, then eat everyone’s creations for the second. There’ll also be events for kids.

Some hospitality students make edible book cakes for their final projects, like this student at the 2017 festival.
