FMU’s Housing and Residence Life sponsored an Easter egg hunt to celebrate Easter on the FMU quad.

The Resident Assistants (RAs) packed 1,800 plastic eggs to give to students for Easter. This is not the first year that the RAs have done this event, but this year it moved from the Octagon to the lawn in front of the Cauthen Educational Media Center and Founders Hall, where the fountain is.

“The goal was just to get residents in the Easter spirit,” Austin Halliburton, an education major and RA, said.

The day before the Easter egg hunt, Halliburton said that every RA on campus spent more than an hour each stuffing the eggs with candy such as Hershey’s Kisses, Laffy Taffy, Tootsie Rolls and Juicy Fruit.

One student said that the event did put her in the Easter spirit.

“I feel like a child all over again,” Kourtney Page, a finance major, said.

Others also felt that the RAs were successful in their mission to bring students together.

“A lot of my friends are coming out here just to have fun,” elementary education major Ivonna Cooper said.

As students picked up the eggs, many had to find other ways to hold their collections. Some used hats, other opened their backpacks or stuff grocery bags.

The youngest egg-hunter was 11-year-old Claira Mann. She said she thought she collected at least 100 eggs, and she said she was excited for Easter to get a special present.

“I want the Easter Bunny to come,” Mann said. “(I want a) hoverboard.”
