 McKendree Student Info

 Current McKendree students must have a wrist band, which can be picked up at the Campus Activities Board tent. A current, valid student ID must be shown to get a wrist band. The McKendree student wrist band gets you cool stuff like a Spring Fling t-shirt (while supplies last) and entry into a drawing for free Pointfest tickets courtesy of 105.7 The Point. We are currently working on providing a free food item from one of our off-campus vendors (details to be posted later or info will be available at the CAB tent).

Available Activities

Enjoy a variety of activities including: Air Brush Tattoos, Street Signs, Dog Tags, Photo Booth, pictures with Bogey, and yard games like volleyball, bags, and washers. We will also have an inflatable obstacle course, inflatable jousting, giant trikes, and a bouncy house for the kids!
