Waka Flocka Flame serves as the headliner for this year’s Serendipity concert.

Wild N’ Out kicked off Serendipity on Sunday, April 8 in Dana Auditorium.

The maroon team went against the black team in freestyle comedy show.

Each team had team captains from the show on MTV, the maroon team being lead by BDaht and the black team headed by Darren Brand.

Students on each team went head to head during different comedy games that were played throughout the night.

Students were able to audition to be on the cast and after many practices they were able to showcase their hard work during the event to start off Serendipity week.

Wild N’ Out lasted from 9m-11pm and was open to prospective students and traditional students during this year’s Spring Into Guilford.

Wild N’ Out brought Dana Auditorium to life thanks to the team captains’ humor and the audience engagement.

Color Fest is a favorite Serendipity activity where students come together and throw color powder in the air and at each other.

The event is inspired by the Hindu festival Holi, or Festival of Colors, that celebrates the beginning of spring.

Holi is an Indian and Nepali spring festival celebrated across the Indian subcontinent.

A moment of silence in honor of Holi, or the Festival of Colors, was held prior to the event.

Additionally, the first annual water balloon fight took place beforeColor Fest.

Color Fest and the water balloon fight took place on Friday, April 13 from 3-5 p.m.

Students enjoyed different activities at the annual Lake Fest that was held by the lake on Saturday, April 14.

There were games like human hungry hungry hippos, bubble soccer, tie-dying your Serendipity shirt and Serendipity’s very first ferris wheel.

There was also a marching band from Carver High School that came to play for the Guilford community.

The event lasted four hours and featured table activities from various student organizations.
