If only Spring Fling was better promoted


Saint Augustine’s University hosted a Spring Fling this past Saturday had a lot for students to enjoy – live music, food, games and activities – but there were not a lot of students there to enjoy it.

I think this Spring Fling wasn’t promoted and communicated to students as well as past Spring Fling’s were.  There were students there, but the attendance was nothing like the past Spring Flings. And, compared to some other events here on campus, no one was hyped about this event.

It’s not like we regularly have events at this university consisting of music and activities that brings the student body together. So I couldn’t understand why students didn’t come out and enjoy the activities on a nice spring day. I believe this event would have been better attended if it were promoted more and sooner.

Here’s my suggestion: They could have done a 15-second video of last year Spring Fling and put it on Instagram, especially to show the freshman class, transfer students and prospective students why this event is a must!! The promotional poster was good but video is better.

If the school expects events to have a good turnout at an event they need to do their best to promote it.
