There’s something special about springtime at UNCG.

It’s the perfect time to take a stroll down College Avenue, grab a cone at Yum Yum or throw Frisbee on the Quad.

It’s a time when the campus is abuzz with activity, and this past weekend served as a kickoff for the campus’ springtime events.

School of Nursing alumni celebrated their 50th anniversary, Woman’s College and UNCG alumni returned to campus for the annual Reunion event, students and community members participated in the 35th annual UNCG International Festival, and students soared high on carnival rides at Spartapalooza.

And it doesn’t stop there. Throughout the month of April, UNCG is hosting numerous events that are open to the campus community and the public.

This weekend, the Spartans return to the UNCG Baseball Stadium for a three-game homestand against Southern-Conference foe Wofford. World-renowned trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis performs on campus April 20, and the Science Everywhere festival returns on April 22.
