Juniors Invited to Float through Finals at Transitions Event

Don't Sink...Float“Don’t Sink… Float!” Vanguard University’s Office of Transitions team invited juniors to come by Heath Lawn on April 30 for soda floats (Coke and Root Beer) and a break from drowning in finals prep.

With Coke and Root Beer floats, a best-guess gumball contest, chill music and a chance to sign the senior royalty sign, the “Don’t Sink…Float” transitions event put smiles on many faces. Despite the crazy winds, multiple juniors stopped by to sign the poster, put in their gumball guesstimate and get a float. On the first day of school in the fall, the senior royalty poster will be carried down the red carpet of Heath Lawn for the new seniors to follow as they begin their final year at Vanguard.

Speaking about the event, junior transitions program director Amber Garman said it was to celebrate juniors becoming seniors and to encourage them to “not sink” in the stress of finals, but “float.” Along with soda floats, juniors walked away with their class picture that was taken during their freshman orientation.
