Spring festivities are just beginning. The financial aid department hosted an Easter egg hunt for any an all students who have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.

Students lined up to confirm that they have completed their FAFSA, and then would be allowed to pick three eggs from the lawn outside of DEETS.

The eggs could contain candy, gift cards or up to $100 or if you chose wisely.
