The National College Band of the Year and other live acts, a barbecue lunch and midnight breakfast, and a host of activities will be part of All College Day this year.

Events will be held Saturday, May 7 on March Field. All activities and food are free with Lafayette ID.

“All College Day is a great tradition at Lafayette — a day for the Lafayette community to come together to celebrate the end of the academic year,” says Amy Ahart ’97, assistant director of student life programs. “The day is filled with music, food, activities, and fun.”

The action starts at noon with a barbecue lunch and a one-hour set by Eden Row, a post-punk pop band. “Intelligent songwriting, intense emotion, and amazing live shows describe this highly driven band from Boston,” according to organizers.

After a half-hour of music with DJ Fly Guy, Jorge Moreno, named Best New Artist at the 2003 Latin Grammy Awards, will perform from 1:30-2:30 p.m. “The music hints at ’50s pop and the sound of the classic Latin crooners, jumps forward to alternative rock and then back again,” state organizers. Moreno was asked this year by legendary guitarist Carlos Santana to be featured on the Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights soundtrack.

After another half-hour with DJ Fly Guy, The Nerds, the National College Band of the Year, will take the stage from 3-4:30 p.m., playing cover songs from the 1960s and on.

March Field also will be the site of a mechanical bull, bungee run, inflatable obstacle course, caricature artist, ice cream, basketball, volleyball, quoits, and more.

From 11 p.m.-1 a.m., faculty and administrators will serve free breakfast in the Farinon Center’s (upstairs) Drake Dining Room to students with Lafayette ID; guest admission is $3.

All College Day is sponsored by Lafayette Activities Forum, Student Government, Residence Hall Council, Lafayette Dining Services, the Office of the Dean of Students, the Office of Residence Life and Student Life Programs, and Recreation Services.
