This fall, QuadWorks is hosting a carnival for students to kick-off the first weekend on campus.

“We are doing free food-funnel cakes, french fries, snow cones, pizza and popcorn, while it lasts,” said Carrie Ingoldsby, Director of Campus Life and Student Involvement. “[We will also have] inflatables and a few carnival games.”

Ingoldsby said this new event will replace the MAC Party.

“[The] MAC Party went away [because] the other schools [Wesleyan College and Middle Georgia State] declined to participate this year so we decided to do an event on campus for Mercer students,” she said.

The carnival will be held Friday in the baseball parking lot from 5-8 p.m.
