Center Stage: A busy week with the Purdue Bells
The Purdue Bells had a busy week! On Friday, February 8 the Bells enjoyed dessert and game night with their Purdue Bells Mentors. Students and mentors asked each other questions to determine which valentines-themed word they have pinned to their back so that they can find their pair with another student or mentor.
Ethan Graber and Jacob Werst are the first to discover the matching word on their backs and as a result are the first to dig in.
The rest of the crew gathers to indulge in the sweet homemade treats the mentors brought before splitting up into teams for a little friendly competition.
