April 10, 2015 – Students on the Davie Campus of Davidson County Community College took a classroom break Thursday afternoon to enjoy some surfing and rock climbing. Both were simulated, of course, but provided a lot of fun during the annual Spring Fling celebration sponsored by the college’s Student Government Association.

Student Jy’Quarius “Q” Dalton discovered his surfing skills to be a bit wobbly on the Super Surf Sensation ride.

“At first, it was easy but then it sped up on me, and I fell off,” he says. “It was fun, though.”

Linda Miller proved she’s a pro at rock climbing as she quickly ascended to the top of the rock and zipped back down. 

“Every time we have the rock climb on campus, I’ll climb it five or six times,” Miller says. “It takes concentration, but I’m not afraid of heights.”

Other activities available to students included an inflatable slide, corn hole game, a fun photo booth and music provided by a live disc jockey. They were also treated to a pizza lunch.Davie Campus Students Sliding on Inflatable

“I like to see the interaction of our students here in Davie and the fun they’re having,” says David Handy, SGA vice president. “It just shows that you can have fun on the road to success.”
