School spirit ran wild at this year’s Homecoming 1998 Residence Hall Day.
Residence Hall Day, which is held annually at the Superblock, kicked off Wednesday with an outdoor lunch. Following lunch were games, a cheer competition, a raffle prize giveaway and the showing of “Friday the 13th” outside.
“Residence Hall Day is a good way to get the halls involved in Homecoming,” said Molly Bruggeman, a Territorial Hall community advisor.
Nick Velander, a residence hall coordinator said participation this year in Residence Hall Day has been great.
“This is the best it’s been for Residence Hall Day in a long time,” Velander said. “It’s been a good experience for all those who have participated.”
The games consisted of an eating contest, Velcro olympics and a volleyball competition.
Flo Iverson, a CLA freshman, said Residence Hall Day was fun. “Everyone was enjoying themselves, and the food was good,” she said.
The cheer competition which followed generated a lot of enthusiasm.
“It’s awesome we have this many people outside,” said Bruggeman.
Prizes were awarded to students throughout the cheer competition. Velander said there has been a lot of participation from outside sources to help fund the prizes. Students had the chance to win prizes from gift certificates to the U of M Bookstore to free pizzas from Domino’s.
