Check out some of our past BGR events below. Please note that planning is still underway for BGR 2020. Some event details are subject to change in response to continuing concerns about coronavirus.

Social Events

During this event, new students will roam between the Co-Rec and the Krach Leadership Center to hear live DJ’s, sing karaoke, climb the rock wall, play volleyball, bounce in inflatables, participate in cooking demonstrations, and much much more!


A diversity awareness program developed by current students that helps you become more aware of who you are as an individual, as well as appreciate the differences around you. Throughout the week you will hear from fellow undergraduate students as they share their story through Freezone Monologues and small group discussions.
