Excellent!! 120 Student Organizations with tables to advertise, 24 Food vendors so plenty of free food, and great choices for fun vendors; sign shop and build a bear especially popular. Need to expand so there is more space to move around the tables or host over 2 days.

First Night was awesome! I loved all the free food and the music and dancing. Didn't like waiting in line for almost two hours to have a sign made...

First night was awesome!! I had an awesome time. THe food was really good, I picked up some Rhody SWAG and I joined a couple of clubs. Completely packed with people so I could barely walk sometimes, but nevertheless it was fantastic.

i had a lot of fun during first night, it was just really hard to get to some of the tables because there were so many people around! obviously that's hard to control with so many people. the food was all awesome
