Students participate in the April Reign festivities at Wallace Lake.

April Reign, an annual event for the Baldwin Wallace University community, took place on April 13 for any students that wanted to participate. Prior to the event, the junior class officers sought to find ways to involve as many organizations as possible.

“April Reign is a fun, campus-wide event that students can create teams for and participate in friendly competition,” said Brenna Holliday, music educationstudent and junior class president.

Some of the events included a t-shirt competition, a scavenger hunt and lunch served by Lang Dining Hall.

Holliday said that it is a common misperception that April Reign is only for sororities and fraternities.

Bailey Wall, a creative writing student and member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, said the first time they attended April Reign, they were surprised to see other groups participating because they had thought it was a fraternity and sorority event.

Holliday said she believes this rumor has circulated because of numerous fraternity and sorority teams wearing t-shirts alongside cheering audiences, making it look like an FSL event to those who do not know about April Reign.

Holliday said that April Reign has never been exclusive to just fraternities and sororities.

“One of our main goals is to make it available to everyone on campus,” Holliday said.

With a goal to engage all of BW’s community, the junior class officers had meetings about April Reign and how to involve more groups in the event.

April Reign is also available for individual student participation.

Students did not have to be affiliated with a specific group to participate as a team. This year, there were two groups of friends participating that were not affiliated with an organization.

After attending last year’s April Reign, Wall said there was enthusiasm, entertainment and good vibes.

Wall said it is nice to have an outdoor field day in college. Additionally, Wall said she believes this event helps encourage students to become more involved on campus.

“I think it brings people together to have a fun time,” Wall said. “I think we need more of that.”
