A Spirited Start on the Hilltop

Students were pumped up for the start of school at the inaugural B United event at the Renaissance Coliseum, a new Welcome Week activity. More than 1,500 students participated in cheers, played audience interaction games and heard from athletic team coaches. The cheerleaders, Bravettes dance team, soccer and volleyball teams, Kaboom! and student fan group, The Red Sea, were on hand for the festivities, as was the pep band.

Week highlights.

Amid the myriad other Welcome Week experiences were President Joanne Glasser greeting students and families on Move-in Day, and students sampling the delicacies at Taste of Bradley, which they showed off with selfies. Plus, Ryan Miller ’14 brought his venture, PlayGround Games — a blacklight, indoor version of popular playground games that placed third in the 2014 Project Springboard competition — to the Markin Family Student Recreation Center for Late Night BU. 

While the Activity Fair enticed students to enjoy a bit of hoopla and splurge on free food on the quads, the carnival-like atmosphere at the Block Party/Stroll Show on Fredonia Avenue promised an evening of excitement.
