Boise State University Towers Hall Council will host a welcoming party on Oct. 15 for Boise State’s newest college students.
The event will have your basic edibles; pizza, candy, soda and a fancy popcorn machine.
The party will also consist a variety of games that every participant can enjoy.
Xbox 360 games will be set up in the Towers classroom, nearby the lobby, along with classic board games. On the other side of the building, where the food and beverages will be held, there will be pool, foosball and ping-pong tournaments.
Courtney Briley, a freshman education major, is the new program coordinator of Towers.
She is excited to see what this year will bring and aims to change Towers’ appearance on the campus.
“I’m hoping this first event is going to set an impression on how others planned their new year in college,” Briley said, “It’s just to show people who we are and what we represent and hopefully they will enjoy what we got in store for them.”
Brian Pengram, a freshman mechanical engineering major and president of the council, expressed his excitement for the upcoming academic year.
“I believe that this is going to be a great year for Towers, with lots of games and activities. The UHA (University Housing Association), too, will also assist with such programs like this.”
Fliers for advertisements are also being put up for reminders of this event, which is being facilitated by the vice president of the Towers Council, Jake Billmyer, a freshman political science major.
The Residential Director Philip Storm is more than excited by the upcoming event, also because he also believes that it’s a fresh start for the new year.
“I am excited,” Storm said, “As far as I know, depicting from only a couple meetings, we have a pretty solid team.
What’s interesting about our team is that, well, they each have different interests, like with Courtney’s love for education and her interest in coming up with new ideas, also with Brian’s fantastic leadership skills. As a Resident Director, I am very excited to see what this new year, at Boise State, has to offer.”
The event should a mix of rivalry and friendship and will take place at the Towers Hall main lobby at 9 p.m.
