KALAMAZOO -- Bronco Bash 2001 is set for 3 to 10 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27, in the Fountain Plaza near Miller Auditorium on the campus of Western Michigan University. A Bronco Bash Web site is available at <studentworld.wmich.edu/broncobash> and will be updated throughout the summer with news about the event.

More than 20,000 students and campus community members are expected to attend the 21st annual event, which is a welcome-back-to-campus celebration for the University and Kalamazoo communities. It also is designed to introduce new students to campus and community resources. With nearly 400 booths available, students will be able to peruse the wares of area merchants and get information about University departments and student organizations.

Novelty entertainment activities at Bash will include the popular Orbotron, Freaky Fotos, Gladiator Jousting, Bouncy Boxing and the Climbing Wall. A festival atmosphere will prevail as students sample a variety of food from local businesses. Area radio stations will be broadcasting live from the Bash and those attending also will hear performances by several popular bands.

The Bash is being coordinated by the Campus Activities Board and by the Office of Student Activities & Leadership Programs. Major sponsors are Kinko's Copies, the Department of Student Affairs, CenturyTel, FM 107.7 WRKR, FM 103.3 WKFR, and FM 89.1 WIDR FM.
