Be A Part From the Start Introduces Freshmen to PSU
For the first time in the fall semester, Rec Hall was filled to capacity with a loud and boisterous crowd. But this wasn’t the typical Rec Hall event, with Alisha Glass and her cohorts laying waste to their opponents on the volleyball court. Last night, Be a Part From the Start, put on by the Lion Ambassadors, introduced the new freshman class to some of the organizations on campus as well as many of the traditions that we hold so dearly.
Campus leaders such as Christian Ragland (University Park Undergraduate Association president), Max Wendkos (Interfraternity Council president) and Kirsten Kelly (THON overall chair) spoke about their respective organizations and how they fit into the fabric of the University. Attendees were entertained with performances from the Penn State Blue Band, the Glee Club, the cheerleading team, and the Lionettes dance team.
The keynote speaker of the event was the head coach of the women’s volleyball team, Russ Rose. Rose spoke about the importance of getting involved on campus and encouraged students to attend volleyball games. All in all a fine introduction for the class of 2014.
