The Student Involvement and Leadership Center (SILC) on campus will be hosting the first annual Blue & Orange Color Fight on the Intramural Field this upcoming Saturday, Sept. 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The event will take place before the first home game against the Miami (OH) Redhawks, so students can wear the remnants of the fight splattered on their person to the game.
The color fight is an opportunity for students to get pumped-up for the game by chucking blue and orange powder all over themselves, their peers and anyone within armshot. Participants are encouraged to wear white clothes; protective eyegear will be provided. The powder is safe and biodegradable.
“The Blue and Orange Color Fight was designed for students to get out and not only show support for their team, but also to meet other students who share the same Bronco spirit,” said Courtney Johnson, a marketing assistant for SILC. “It’s an awesome opportunity for students to come out, listen to some great music and color fight before the first home game. This will be a fun event, giving students the opportunity to get involved and come together as a community.”
Music will be provided by the University Pulse, Boise State’s student run independant radio.
“It’s basically going to be something that’s felt and not only seen,” Denny Spinks, General Manager of the University Pulse said. “You’ll use all your senses to feel what we’re doing.”
Old Navy will be donating white t-shirts and Qdoba will be giving out free burrito passes.
“I’m most excited to see everyone come together and just have a blast,” said Sean Olmstead, a program assistant for SILC. “We don’t have a lot of game day traditions and I think we’re starting something that students are going to look forward to every year.”
