Campus Events

New Student Orientation
  • Paint Wars: The new incoming class is broken into teams that prepare for battle throughout orientation. Students prepare a team name, a team flag, and varying degrees of costume/armor made from cardboard (save those boxes from move-in day!). Students then march to the beach to participate in a colorful sword fight.
