 A Smashing Success! 

smashing computersSpring Fling was a smashing success, especially for the Cougar Geeks, students in Debra Dyer's computer electronics classes.  They sold "three hits for 50 cents" at their booth, where  students like Psychology major Taylor Stuts could take out their aggression on some old, unusable computer equipment! The Cougar Geeks take usable equipment and refurbish it for charity.  This old junk was able to serve the same purpose by generating a few bucks!
