Guam – Dancing, entertainment, and booths highlighting the different regional cultures represented by GCC students drew over 600 students, faculty, staff, and guests to the GCC annual Spring Festival last night on the GCC campus.

 

For the first time, students were able to use the stage and facilities at their new Student Center for the festival.

“It was much better than our usual setup in the courtyard. I felt like we were at home, like we actually have a place to hold our events,” said Ariane Nepomuceno, president of the GCC Council on Postsecondary Student Affairs (COPSA).

COPSA holds its annual officer elections during the Spring Festival, and students also elect a new representative to the Board of Trustees. Election results will be announced at the next Board of Trustees meeting, on April 4, 2012. A record 556 students cast ballots in last night’s election, up nearly 34 percent from last spring’s election turnout.
