Twas a rainy week in Syracuse but the weather did not stop the students of ‘Cuse from celebrating the end of the semester at Mayfest and Block Party on Friday.

Here’s what went down:

Students gathered outside of Hendricks Chapel on Thursday night for a “Slut Walk” against rape culture and slut-shaming. The event began with some words, spoken poetry and a musical performance.

The walk was sponsored by various student organizations.

The Quad was covered with Solo Cups


… and it was to draw attention to sexual assault on college campuses.

Its On Us SU put this display of solo cups on The Quad to show a visual representation of the intersection of sexual assault and alcohol intake.

A rainy afternoon at Mayfest did not stop ‘Cuse students from enjoying.

University Union presented Mayfest 2016 featuring PUBLIC, Louis The Child and Vince Staples on Friday afternoon.

Students gathered in Walnut Park for the event which featured musical performances, bouncy houses and free food. This yearly event is a staple at SU and is a showcase of UU’s hard work to bring entertainment to the Orange community.

After Mayfest, students flooded the Dome to see Jon Bellion, Chance The Rapper and The Chainsmokers take the stage.
