Utah Tech University to welcome spring with egg hunts, activities for everyone

Open to the entire community, Utah Tech University’s annual Trailblazer Nation Spring Fest will usher in the spring season with its largest egg hunt ever as well as a variety of activities and live performances.

“Springtime on campus has always been one of my favorites because we get to celebrate D-Week and Trailblazer Nation Spring Fest,” Brooke Sullivan, UT’s alumni events and marketing coordinator, said. “We love to provide fun events and opportunities that connect our alumni and community to the university.”

Trailblazer Nation Spring Fest, which is free to attend, is set to take place during D-Week, the university’s annual celebration of the institution and community’s tradition of coming together. Spring Fest will kick off at 5:30 p.m. on April 7 on the university’s North Encampment Mall with music, food and carnival games provided by the Utah Tech Student Association, Alumni Association, STEM Outreach and University Events and Promotions.
