Get the Most out of Spring Fling 2018

To get the most out of your Spring Fling Weekend, we encourage you to stay hydrated, rest, eat well, and most importantly ask for help when you need it. Specifically, TUSC urges concertgoers to remember that a crowd does not equal consent, and just because the performers use certain language doesn’t mean you should!

Green Dot

Green Dot is a pro-active and reactive Bystander Intervention program that focuses on changing our campus culture and building skills for a safer community. This year, TUSC Concert volunteers and a number of other event staff will go through Green Dot training prior to Spring Fling Weekend.

Animals & Society Short Course

Interested human-animal relationships?  Would you like to deepen your understanding of animal issues and how to create change?

For nearly 25 years, the M.S. program in Animals and Public Policy (MAPP) has provided students with the knowledge and skills to improve society’s treatment of animals.

For the first time, the faculty of the Center for Animals and Public Policy will conduct a one-week summer course to examine some of the high-profile animal issues that we explore in depth in the MAPP program. We will mix lectures, short field trips, and group discussions that will enable class participants to sift through the material covered and apply it to their own experience.
