Matt Balthazar (above) gets a face full of pudding, while Zach Callier (below) soaks Joey Kline with water during the annual Thurtene Carnival April 17-18. The carnival is one of the University’s oldest traditions, dating back to 1904. Nearly 120,000 people attended the event, which featured carnival rides, themed facades, food, game booths and student-performed plays. Proceeds from this year’s carnival will benefit Youth In Need, a local charity. The combined efforts of Delta Gamma sorority and Sigma Nu fraternity won the Burmeister Cup for best facade and skit.
