On April 27, California State University, Dominguez Hills held their annual Spring Fling Concert, hosted by Associated Student Inc., and this year it was very different. The concert included DJ performances from fellow CSUDH students Lenny Jones and Cameron Jackson, was headlined by Grammy award-winning rapper 2 Chainz.
Spring Fling was hosted at the Pitch and Pale area in the StubHub Center and had everything from music and beer, to food and photo booths.

“The drinks were surprisingly good and they had a good selection to choose from,” said Carissa Diaz, junior communications major. “My favorite was the jungle juice because it was perfectly made and it’s rare when you find it at events like this so well tasting.”

However, the drinks may have been good but not everybody was fond of the food selection available to the students. Although there was a handful of food trucks to choose from, to some students there was something lacking.

“The food was appealing but I’m a vegetarian and they had little to no options for us,” said Maria Alejandre, a sophomore sociology major.
Those in attendance for the music were in for a better Spring Fling experience.

2 Chainz, who started the show off by performing his verse off the Grammy award-winning song “No Problem,” was electric throughout his set. He performed for just under an hour and constantly had the crowd jumping. Songs like, “Birthday Song,” “I’m different,” “No Lie,” and “4 AM,” were sang word for word and created a buzzing atmosphere throughout the event.

2 Chainz even went as far back as performing a song released in 2007 titled “Duffle Bag Boy.” The song was released by the rap duo Playaz Circle, which included Dolla Boy and 2 Chainz, who was known as Tity Boi at the time, and featured Lil Wayne. 2 Chainz performed his verse from the song and the crowd proudly sang the 11-year hook.

Spring Fling overall drew positive reactions from the crowd, the music was fun and it was an amazing way for students to let loose before finals, but there was one issue that bugged many students about the event.

The event, which was expected to have about 2000 people attend, had an unorganized way of letting people in. Before one was able to go through security to enter the Pitch and Pale area, they had to check in at a table based on the student’s last name.

This idea may have worked but when the M-R last name line is about five times longer
than the S-Z maybe it isn’t such a great idea.

“Spring Fling was really fun, I just wish it was more organized so people didn’t have to stand in line for more than 40 minutes just to get a wristband,” said Destiny Torres, sophomore communications major.

Lack of organization aside, ASI was able to pull off hosting a great event. Students, faculty, alumni, and guests were able to kick back, relax and have a good time.
