The annual Spring Fling week was organized by Student Government Association and kicked off on April 3 with an Ice Cream Giveaway. Students lined up in the Renegade Crossroads to receive chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry ice cream with the option of whipped cream, chocolate syrup, or caramel syrup. The event was free for all BC students. The next day, a campus-wide Egg Hunt was held. A booth was also set up where students could purchase a tie-dyed tshirt for $5. On April 5, students participated in a blind-taste test for Pizza Fest.

Pizzas were donated from pizzerias around town and placed in unmarked boxes. Students received bite-sized pieces from every box and were given a piece of paper to vote for their favorite one. The final event for Spring Fling week was Laser Tag, which took place on the CSS lawn on April 6. Barriers were put up in a roped off section of the lawn for people to hide behind while they played. Adults could play a game for $2 or play the first game free if they had student discount stickers. Some people brought children, who could play for $1. Popcorn, snow cones, and cotton candy were for sale at the event.
