Snow College Badgers have become acquainted with their new school environment over the last
few weeks. They have come from a variety of places, some coming only miles from home, while
others travel internationally, all to come to school.
Snow College staff, student leadership, and many returning Badgers have tried to make the
transition into college life easy and enjoyable. In order to do this, there are a series of activities
set up to welcome everyone to Snow College.
Badger Move-In Day
The campus at Snow College came to life on August 16. Roommates met, friendships made, and
many students said goodbye to friends and families. Across campus men and women wearing

by doing improv acts and competing against each other for who was the funniest. “You could tell
it wasn’t rehearsed. There is no way they could have known that couples’ love story,” Meghan
Roden explained, speaking about one of the acts where they reenacted a random couples love
sotry. Everyone enjoyed the show.
The last event of the week was held on Friday night. At the tennis court a couple blocks away
from the school campus. Foam machines spewed out bubbles until the foam covered everything.
With lights flashing and music blaring, the dance party was alive until eleven. Conveniently,
right as it was ending it began to pour, just in time to wash away all the bubbles.
