This was my first SOULstice since coming to UCR, and I absolutely loved it. The performances from all 4 of them were amazing. Getting Urban Decay merch was nice. Not going to lie though, I thought there'd be food/snacks available so I left out eating before the event - I won't make that mistake next time. I'm grateful that I did not have to bring my bottle - the free water was great.
It was intimate. Really hot so maybe like more dispersed water stations and fans? The event started a lil later and ended later too. Other than that BOMB. Great. Amazing. The opener however was very diff from the other artists.
My two kids came home yesterday after their first day of camp and said it was AWESOME!! They could not stop talking about all the activities they did, the great food they ate, and the wonderful camp counselors. After the parent orientation, I was very impressed with the program and facility. My son even said he would like to attend college at UCR (he is only 10 by the way). So glad we decided to come to UCR Camp Highlander.
There should be more organization with the check-in component. There wasn't much structure and as a student that was there with their loved ones on a very special day, it wasn't a great idea to have them standing in a stuffy space for a very long time. I suggest for there to be more volunteers at the check-in. Or even possibly start the ceremony ealier, so there doesn't have to be large amounts of time gaps in between.
