True Badger night is a once-a-semester event at Snow College. In order to be called a “True Badger” here in Ephraim, one must kiss with someone for all 12 chimes of the bell tower at midnight on a night with a full moon. This can be accomplished by either bringing a date or by going alone wearing a red shirt, which is the signal for “I’m looking for a date and I’ll take what I can get.” This event is usually done once per semester; Thursday, May 5.
As with every True Badger Night, there will be quite a turnout. Activities throughout the day precede the actual event, including a real-life Tinder in the GSC in the afternoon, and a dance, which started at 10:00. After an hour and a half of dancing, everyone at the dance wanders out to the bell tower for the grand finale of the event. Dozens of couples gather under and around the bell tower so they can become True Badgers. A big question that potential True Badgers wonder about is whether or not the bell tower will actually ring, as last semester’s event yielded a hiccup in the bell tower’s rhythm, leaving it silent as the clock reached midnight. That won’t stop all the couples, though.
