Hot Air Balloon: A first-time for most

On Wednesday, May 8th, a hot air balloon was brought on campus upon request by the senior class.  Rides began around 9am and lasted until around 10:30am.  There were supposed to be rides lasting until 12pm, but the wind picked up and the balloon fell over.  That was the end to the day as they…
