Booth is one of the biggest showpieces of Spring Carnival. Student organizations build multi-story structures around our chosen theme, Myths and Legends. These booths include interactive games and elaborate decorations. The booths are located on Midway, at the College of Fine Arts parking lot. Admission is free to see booths!
There are four competitive categories for booth: Sorority, Fraternity, Independent, and Blitz (smaller) booths. Alpha Phi Omega also builds non-competing concession stand, with proceeds going to charity. Below are this year’s participating organizations and their chosen games:

All organizations move onto Midway the Friday night before Carnival weekend, and keep building until opening for the public Thursday afternoon! Midway is a frenzy of activity for several days. Students go from putting up walls to constructing staircase railings to painting paper mache decorations! The finished products are really a sight to see.
