One of the best things about being a student at Washington College is attending all the FREE campus events! I recorded exactly what I was seeing while walking down the Cater Walk towards Martha Washington Square where the Naval Band played! I even went to get some free food and Rita’s Italian Ice!

I love this photo. President (Former Prez?) Mitchell Reiss taking the ALS ice bucket challenge at the All Campus Picnic.
The All Campus Picnic takes place the first evening after everyone moves back and welcomes professors, staff, community members, alumni, and students alike to fine dining - aka hot dogs and hamburgers. This is always a highlight of the first week activities as it brings together everyone again after a long summer of being apart.

Did I mention there was also an epic fireworks show on the Washington College campus to kick off the new academic year? Well, there was no better way to end the night than being reunited with friends underneath the lit nighttime sky! It’s good to finally be back!

Oh, what a day! All moved-in on campus and celebrating the start of the fall semester at the all-campus picnic! The Freshmen Class of 2018 were cheered on as the exited from the Gibson Center for the Arts and entered into Martha Washington Square! Great food, great people, and having a blast! Let’s get to it! College life at WAC is sweet!
