As the end of the semester draws near, Hiram College is gearing up for Springfest 2015. The weeklong celebration will take place April 27 through May 3, 2015, with the much-anticipated B.O.B. concert happening on Saturday, May 2.
The Hiram College Springfest tradition dates back to May Day celebrations in the early 1970s and has grown into a week of events that brings the student body together to celebrate the end of the spring semester.
A full schedule of events follows. Concert “meet-and-greet” tickets will be raffled off at each event, Monday through Friday.
