What do you remember most about college? For some, the answer is fun. Sure, there were late nights cramming for tests and finishing those term papers we procrastinated on. There was stress over homework assignments and keeping up that grade point average.

But in between all the hard work it took to earn that degree and prepare for the job market, college was the doorway to new friendships, new experiences and memories that last a lifetime.

Those are the types of memories about 500 students made on a Friday night, April 21, as they kicked off the 43rd annual Vintage Days festival with a new tradition — a powder paint party.

With the live music selections of DJ Burns, students danced on the lawn north of the Lab School late into the night with new friends and old alike, all the while being covered in a rainbow of neon powder paint.

Sounds like the perfect way to dive in to the three-day Vintage Days festival that attracted about 50,000 people from the community to celebrate Fresno State and enjoy food, games, crafts and more.
