One Week Down: Let the Games Begin!

Students weathering the first week of fall classes got back-to-back reminders to infuse their studies with occasional playtime, courtesy of the Student Activities Office. A Wildcat House Party was held Friday night on the lawn of the Thompson Professional Development Center, while Saturday brought a spirited “Campus Feud” game show to the Klump Academic Center Auditorium. Both events are part of the jam-packed “PC3” schedule of activities that balances the academic side of the semester startup.
