As part of Summer Knights programming, First Year Experience hosted two large scale events to welcome students to Summer B 2015.

On June 28, the Pegasus Palooza Summer Bash was held at the Leisure Pool where students swam, played pool volleyball, danced to the DJ and enjoyed Jeremiah’s Italian Ice. Over 1,000 students attended; a record-breaking number for the event.

“We were so excited by the turnout; it’s a great event for students to have fun in a safe environment before the first day of classes,” stated Abby Nobili, program coordinator.

The annual LINK Summer B Block Party was held on June 30 in the Academic Village Courtyard. Students had the chance to talk to representatives from over 25 different offices, spin wheels for prizes, partake in “inebriation goggle” activities and join in the Amazing Race, a campuswide scavenger hunt. The Block Party had 424 students in attendance and 12 teams participated in the race.

Both events were great starts to the six weeks of summer programming that will culminate with “LINKO” on August 4.

LINKO is LINK’s fun and fast-paced version of BINGO. Students receive LINKO cards at check-in and play classic rounds of four corners, filling in a row, creating letters and more for a chance to win great prizes. First to win must stand up and yell LINKO.
