The massive community service event known as Spring Storm, and subsequent Fiestas outdoor festival, are just around the corner. Both events take place Saturday, April 7.

“These events really embody what UNM is about – service and learning while having life-changing experiences,” said Ryan Lindquist, director, Student Activities Center. “In the morning our students will complete an extensive list of service projects for organizations in need throughout the city of Albuquerque, then they return to campus to celebrate this beautiful community they are proud to be a part of and contribute too.”

The Assoicate Students of UNM's (ASUNM) Community Experience hosts Spring Storm, an annual event that brings together countless students, faculty and staff to participate in community service projects for local charities, schools and parks. The event is a fun way for the UNM community to give back to Albuquerque through a massive day of service. This year’s event starts at Johnson Gym and after three and half hours of work, participants gather at Johnson Field for lunch, prizes and fun at ASUNM Student Special Events’ “Fiestas.”

Those interested in participating may sign up at Student Organizations and Volunteers. The deadline for studnets and volunteers to register is Friday, March 30. Those organizations who have projects for Spring Storm can register here. The deadline to submit project is March 23,  The event starts at 9:15 a.m. with check-in at Johnson Center's Main Gym.

Fiestas is UNM’s largest arts and music festival and has been a staple in Albuquerque entertainment for more than 50 years. This year, ASUNM Student Special Events’ student committee has provided a great lineup of entertainment including Hippie Sabotage, Quinn XCII, HDBeenDope, The Millennial Club and 2 Man Embassy. 

The music starts at 1 p.m. and runs through 9 p.m. on Johnson Field.
