DUNCAN — Spring was in the air on Thursday, which was fortunate for the first-ever “Springfest” at Cameron University-Duncan.

The local satellite campus of Cameron University opened its doors and its spacious grounds to the friends and families of its students, faculty and alumni to enjoy free hamburgers and hot dogs, outdoor games and activities for kids.

“Some of them have never been to the campus,” said Susan Camp, director of CU-Duncan.

Cameron University’s steel drum band, the Pan Express, traveled from Lawton to provide music.

The campus at 3100 W. Bois D’Arc opened in 1994 and became an official branch campus of Cameron University in 2004.

About 575 students are enrolled this semester.

Some used Springfest as a way to introduce the campus to their kids, who took full advantage of the inflatable obstacle course outside and the artist who was painting faces inside.
