Residence Life runs ‘Festival of Spirits’

By Brenda Herring


The Office of Residence Life held a Festival of Spirits Thursday, March 26, that featured music, food and even sidewalk-chalk drawing to help students find their inner selves.

The three-hour event outside Dr. Burton E. Grossman International Conference Center was billed as a “night of free spirituality with fun activities and music.” Performers included the band, A Story of a Soul, and Dreanicolle.

The event took several weeks to plan, organize and execute, said Selena Perez, a communication arts major serving as a resident assistant at Avoca E apartments.

“To even set up and put together the music took three hours alone,” Perez said. “As a team we worked completely together to put together the best live event during University of the Incarnate Word Week.

“One thing people can learn from Festival of Spirits is that to not take life serious and to enjoy everything about life — family, companions, and nature,” Perez said. “In life there are trials and tribulations, but you have to find a way to make the best of every situation and move on to the next thing in life.”
