University of Michigan-Dearborn held its annual homecoming week with pride. UM-Dearborn held its Faculty/staff vs. student games from 12- 1:30 p.m. on the University Center Patio.
The games consisted of an inflatable race with two competing teams: faculty and staff versus current students.
The students won the race with a score of 1 to 0.
The faculty and staff that participated were from the Office of Admissions and Orientations, Office for Student Engagement, along with many others from throughout the university.
It was a fun-packed event that allowed faculty, staff and students to let loose and enjoy themselves.
“I think that having a bouncy-house obstacle course is a great idea. SAB gives students an opportunity to have some ridiculous fun, to let loose a little in the middle of the stress of school, and to meet people from all over campus,” says current UM-Dearborn student, Sarah Overbeck.
The event consisted of enjoyment, competition and laughter. It allowed everyone to stop thinking about their busy tasks or stress out from midterms and exams, and just enjoy the moment.
Everyone certainly showed their maize and blue by participating and having a good time.
Homecoming continued that night with Homecoming Movie Night at 7 p.m. at the House of Maize and Blue.
Homecoming Week is put together and approved by the Office for Student Engagement. It is a tradition to unify the community as a whole and to show appreciation for our university and community.
A current UM-Dearborn student who participated in the games, Christopher Thompson, says, “the obstacle course was a fun activity to participate in. Nothing beats a bit of friendly competition with the faculty!”
