King's University College's Residence Council hosted the second annual Carnival, a fun stress buster event for students, on April 2nd, 2014. Residence and off-campus students had the chance to take a break from studying and enjoy the beautiful weather with others from the King's community. 

Assistant Residence Manager Carrie Guthrie helped plan the event and suggested the exciting attractions on campus. "The event is supported by Residence Council," says Guthrie. It's our way of saying thank you to the students. This is a stressful time for many people, so we wanted to give students the opportunity to get outside before exams start." 

Students gathered outside in the main parking lot and enjoyed BBQ, cotton candy and a variety of fun games. The activities included the Zorb Ball Racer, the Bootcamp Challenge, and the Ninja Jump basketball game. 

First year students Simran Sandhu and Kendra Haskell spent some time running around in the Zorb Ball Racer. "I think a lot of people are feeling stressed right now with exams, and exercising and having fun helps relieve some of that pressure," says Sandhu. "Many of us miss our families, and this makes us feel like kids again."

"This event makes me so happy that I want to come back right after class," says Haskell. "It's exciting to see this happening, especially since we need some fun and relief just before exams."
