As the weather begins to warm and the spring semester begins to wind down, it can only mean one thing at Hiram College: the annual tradition of SpringFest.

Started in the early 1970s, SpringFest evolved from the College’s May Day celebration. Activities have changed over the years, but it has remained an anticipated end-of-the-year event.

This year’s SpringFest celebration, sponsored by the Kennedy Center Programming Board, will take place Thursday, April 25-Sunday, April 28, 2013, with the theme “Channel Surfing: Hiram Style.” The band 3OH!3 will headline the Friday night concert*.
