5 Reasons You Need To Be At Spring Fling

5 Reasons You Need To Be At Spring Fling

Spring is nature's way of saying "Let's party!"

Boise State's 39th annual Spring Fling is right around the corner, and they're bringing the same heart-pounding excitement around for the second year in a row. Seriously, you're going to want to be there.

1. It's free (with student ID)

Look, we've all spent all our money for the semester, and now you're living off BRC swipes and the Ritz Crackers you bought in September. You deserve some free entertainment.

2. It's Boise's version of Coachella

So you couldn't afford Weekend 2 tickets to Coachella this year—no worries. Spring Fling is the perfect opportunity to break out the #festivalvibes in the PNW.

3. It's your last chance to let loose before finals

Look, finals is going to cause you more stress than you can ever imagine (freshman, I'm looking at you), so go let loose one more time.

4. The Instagram potential is unreal

Grab bae and head to this year's Spring Fling! The lighting is perfect and when's the next time you're going to have a professional photographer following you around during the night?

5. You get the aux cord

Kalliope is returning to campus to make this event the coolest thing you do all year. In case you don’t already know, Kalliope is a larger-than-life boom box bass with 70,000 watts of power pumping out music ignited by neon strobes and laser light beams. And because it’s your party, you get to pick the music.

Walter the Bus, a two-to-one scale replica of a classic VW bus, and Medusa, a flame cannon spitting machine, will take your Spring Fling experience to a whole new level of energy. Mix in some up-in-the-air thrill rides and it’ll be revolutionary.

According to event coordinator, Jenna Massaro, “We want students to come to the event because they heard last year was AMAZING. And we want students to stay at the event because this year is even more AMAZING.”

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.
