Students at Baldwin Wallace University take advantage of the spring weather and begin to participate and plan for the last half of the semester.
The halfway mark has hit for the 2014 Spring Semester and most midterms are coming to a close
April will be a busy month at BW with its upcoming events and performances.
Students work together in different organizations and groups and help strengthen the BW community with the participation opportunities offered during the springtime.
A few events and organization events to mark off on the calendar for this April consist of the fyoo-zh-en (fusion) 2014 Dance Concert, April Reign, and the Annual Art Attack Chicago trip.

Art Attack Chicago Trip
The core values of Art Attack are rooted firmly within the organization: having students with an appreciation for the arts and studio art majors/minors come together and share their different ideas, points of view and inspiration in order to move forward in an innovative and creative world.
The organization will be having its annual Chicago Trip in April from 4-6. This trip offers students the chance to experience local galleries and museums while expanding their horizons in terms of art in a growing and innovative world.

April Reign
Fun Fact: April Reign was originally known as May Day which celebrated the spring season and the crowning of the May Queen. When BW switched to semesters in 1999, the annual spring event was then renamed April Reign.
April Reign will take place the weekend of April 11. It is a celebration of springtime and the welcoming of warm weather. Different student organizations participate in different competitions.
The current April Reign Schedule consists of events such as Pyramid Building at Finnie Stadium, Obstacle Course at Finnie Stadium, The CEP Comedy Show, Men’s & Women’s Tug, and Men’s & Women’s Boat. More information on April Reign can be found at the Baldwin Wallace website at www.bw.edu.
