The lines were long and the sun was hot, but the QuadWorks Carnival still attracted hundreds of Mercerians to the lot behind the baseball fields.

QuadWorks was fully equipped with carnival staples like funnel cakes, bumper cars, rock climbing walls and even a rollercoaster.

The QuadWorks Carnival replaced the annual MAC Party, a semester kick-off event that was cancelled this year.

“[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,” said Carrie Ingoldsby, director of Campus Life and Student Involvement.

Sophomore Elizabeth Daniels said that she enjoyed the change.

“The carnival was a great way to jump start a new year with my lovely fellow bears,” she said.
