The opening ceremony was held at a huge "gymnasium" in the city, so we traveled there Monday morning. The main event was a cheer dance competition. Even though most of them had lots of men in the group dancing inappropriately, I enjoyed this group's act because they used a lot more mechanics and technique instead of just being "sexy."
As we walked around campus that week, these are some of the sports we saw..
|for the basketball games, they kept track of the score by hand, on a chalk board! Talk about old school! =)|

One day during Intrams, they also had an "open dorm" event. All of the dorm residents prepared their rooms, and judges went around to award prizes for the best decorated. The girls go all out for this event. I mean all out. One room was really creative, and turned a bed sideways to create a "throne" look.. (not sure if that'd be allowed in our dorms in the States, but it sure looked really nice!)
Almost all of the rooms also decorated their ceilings too. This one looked particularly cool.
In addition to sports and dorm events, there were a lot of vendors who set up their table/shop on the campus, selling bracelets, food, drinks, and even offering karaoke.
I hope you enjoyed getting a small glimpse into University life here. I know I did.
