The view looking down on Foote Green from the ferris wheel set up last Friday as part of Canes Carnival.  The event, planned by the campus entertainment organization Canes Night Live, itself functioning under the umbrella of Hurricane Productions, gave students one last chance to relax and enjoy themselves at the conclusion of classes for the 2012-2013 school year and before the start of reading days and finals.

Canes Night Live organized the appearance of an elephant on campus at this year’s Canes Carnival. The animal, affectionately named the CNLephant on social media, offered rides to students willing to wait in line.
