The Marshall University Pagan Association, a Neo-Pagan organization, performed the ritual of Ostara, the virgin goddess of spring, on Buskirk Field Thursday evening.

"It's a time of renewal and rebirth, a lot has happened to me this past year its good to cleanse yourself," said Casey Shreve, senior photography major from New Creek, W.Va. "It is a time to get together with open minded people. People you can relate to."
