Admission is $5 or five non-perishable food items for adults. Children under 12, military, senior citizens will receive an all-day wristband for $3 or three non-perishable food items. Admission includes a barbecue in the Student Center Ballroom at 5 p.m. after activities close.
Parking will open at 9 a.m. and activities will be from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., according to Karson Langley, vice president of Student Senate and a member of the Spring Daze committee.

A hayrack shuttle will circulate around campus picking people up at each activity location on campus and the residence halls. Carnival game booths, music and food options will line the main sidewalks through campus. Games in the sand volleyball area near High Rise will include inflatables, jousting, potato sack races, dunk tank, high striker, bungee run and sumo wrestling.
