tv_Around Campus 10dbMONTICELLO-The University of Arkansas at Monticello held its end of the year crawfish boil which featured about 2,000 pounds of delicious crawfish.

   This year marked the 30th crawfish boil at UAM and it always draws a big crowd. With finals right around the corner students had a chance to take a break from all the studying and just have a little fun. Heidi Howe, student at UAM, said she enjoyed the crawfish but also liked being around great company.

   “It was a lot of fun,” Howe said. “I was able to escape the stress of finals and just enjoy good food and friends in the process.”

   The boil proved to be a success as 2,000 pounds of crawfish was gone in less than one hour. The boil started as a fish fry 30 years ago but the purpose still remains the same today which is getting people together and having a good time.
Rob Leonard puts the boil together every year and he says this year had a different twist.

   “This year was a little bit different because we tried to get people to donate towards the tragedy in West Texas,” said Leonard. “Its about getting people together and making them aware and also about celebrating the end of the year as well.”

   The big turnout this year indicates this years boil definitely won’t be the last at UAM.
