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.
