Last Saturday, my team put on an Easter-themed culture activity for the sophomores. We all teach at least one section of sophomores, so we have a strong connection with this bunch.
First, we hid a bunch of real and candy eggs outside the department while Tarah distracted everyone inside. When she gave the go-ahead, all students broke loose.

|Students and eggs. The fourth girl over looks a little underwhelmed.|
|Sophomores gather around to see the special prize for the finder of the "Winner!" egg|
|Winner! The crowd erupted when we revealed the prize, just as you would expect a bunch of typical American college students to do in the presence of a large stuffed bunny. Wait, maybe not. :)|
After the hunt, we introduced them to a few old-school egg games. First was the egg toss (a funny, messy affair), and then the egg carry.

Finally, we all went back inside to watch a clip of an Easter video, learn about some Easter traditions, and listen to Tarah sing "My Redeemer Lives." It was another fun evening with our wonderful sophomores.
