  • On Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. in the Boitnott room, CEAT hosted board games and DIY activities. All around the room students were going from table to table playing games and interacting with each other.

  • First-year students (from left to right) Anna Rexrode, ShiLi Quade, Sophia Martone, Mohammed Qudaih, Jordie Roberts and Megan Wimmer were deciding whether they wanted to play Taboo or Yahtzee next.

  • First-year students Jackson Gonyea, Jay Riley, Abby Nester and Billy Mitchell showing off their money that they collected while playing a game of Monopoly.

  • One of the many DIY activities offered at the event was do-it-yourself potted plants, where students had the opportunity to make their own pots for miniature plants. First-year student Mandie Hamilton was able to grab one of these kits and make her own potted plant before they ran out.

  • Junior and CEAT member Jane Ackerman (picture in orange, long-sleeved shirt) checked-in on students at the event, to get their feedback and know what they want more of in future CEAT events. First-year students McKenna Boswell and Maddy Gundler were at a table with coloring activities.

  • Pictured left to right is senior Ciara Harney, junior Larissa Niles, junior Janae Ackerman with Coordinator of Student Engagement and Leadership Sam Schlernitzaur. Three hours prior to the event, students received an email from Assistant Dean of Students Whitney Smith stating that the initial meal for the event, which was Chick-fil-A, will be substituted for Firehouse Subs.

  • Some students, such as first-year students Lonii Sparks and Madeline Hutchins, were upset that they did not get Chick-fil-A. “I was hoping for Chick-fil-A tonight, especially for their Polynisian sauce,” said Sparks. While Madeline Hutchins said, “finger food would have done it.”

  • Regardless of the change in menu from Chick-fil-A to Firehouse Subs, some students, such as Kelsie Huffman, first-year health and exercise major, enjoyed themselves. “It’s a good way to meet new people,” said Huffman.
