Taking Pride in Lynn’s Beginnings

Lynn Community Looks Forward to Founders Day

On Nov. 1, the Lynn community will be celebrating Founders Day in the University Center and Christine E. Lynn Park to honor the University’s past 28 years of history.

It has become an annual tradition that the university celebrates the day by holding a variety of lively activities for the Lynn community to participate in. This year, festivities will begin at 9 a.m. in the University Center with breakfast and a speech from President Kevin M. Ross. He will share historical tidbits and will announce special guests that have taken part in shaping the university. 

At noon, students will have the opportunity to participate in three-wheeler relay races. Partnered with a teammate, one can expect to ride adult-sized tricycles through a challenging race course. Students can sign up and pick their pedaling partner during the event. Winners will be announced by the end of the day.

The recreational day will conclude with the Family Picnic and Festival taking place at 4 p.m. in the Christine E. Lynn Park. Family members are invited to join the Lynn Community to indulge in delicious food, live music, and the colorful Student Golf Cart Parade.

“I’m really looking forward to the golf cart float competition. Last year Game Club really blew it out the water so I’m wondering who will win this year,” said Symantha Gant, junior. 

For students that have attended in previous years, Founders Day is a wonderful opportunity to create meaningful memories. First year students can expect to partake in new experiences.

“I’m looking forward to watching the canoe races. I participated in my freshman year and it was really fun so I love to watch people having fun with it as well,” said Susan Werner, senior.
