Students gathered in the University Center for Clyde’s Kickoff Sept. 18-19, which offered a way for students to get to know what goes on in the University Center, learn about the athletic teams and meet other people with similar interests.

The first night was dedicated to athletics and was held in the Gallogly Events Center. Announcers introduced the different sports teams and their players.

Students also participated in a raffle by shooting a full-court shot with a basketball. The winning prize was $50,000.

Lacrosse player Tijana Lukich failed to make the $50,000 court shot, but was awarded $1,000.

The second night focused on the different departments of the University Center. Each office had a station where they had different activities including glow golf, karaoke, trivia and billiards.
