kickoffKICKOFF.07 celebrates with Friday Sam and Saturday Slam

Come and kick it with students, staff, faculty and alumni to KICKOFF.07!

You are invited to celebrate the start of the school year and participate in activities with new and returning students to campus over this two-day event on Friday, Sept. 7 and Saturday, Sept. 8, 2007.

Billed as Friday Sam Saturday Slam, KICKOFF.07 is a back-to-school bash for you from your U! Friday Sam is filled with exciting events including a pep rally featuring the introduction of your faculty Rex, the Green Fools and a free BBQ, and culminating in a rocking show on the south lawn with Canada’s own Sam Roberts Band.

Saturday Slam is a day to catch the tailgate party, complete with free Spolumbo’s sausages, and participate in Bling Bling (a cystic fibrosis fundraiser), a race of the Rexes, the best dressed Rex competition and the Dino football game, their home opener against the Huskies. Half-time features the Punt, Pass and Kick competition between the four best dressed Rexes.

All students in attendance have a chance to win a semester of free tuition in draws on both days.

You don't want to miss out on this two-day event filled with lots more to do and see.
