Incoming freshmen are assigned to one of six residential college communities when they arrive on campus. This video shows some of the activities that the students competed in during the Sept. 8 event, including hula hoop relays, team cheers, karaoke and a dance-off. The event is designed to help students cultivate pride in their residential colleges, create new friendships and develop a greater sense of community.

At the end of the evening, Butler College was declared this year's winner.
