KALAMAZOO -- Celebration and exploration will mark Bronco Bash 2002, set for 3 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, in the Fountain Plaza near Miller Auditorium.

More than 25,000 students are expected to converge on the plaza for the 22nd annual event, which is a welcome-back celebration for the University and Kalamazoo communities. Bronco Bash will feature games, music, and nearly 400 booths where students can peruse the wares of area merchants and get information about University departments, student organizations and local volunteer opportunities.

Throughout the afternoon and evening, the crowd will be treated to music by five bands, including Orquesta Ranura, Melt, Doc Brown, Oval Opus and hometown favorite Knee Deep Shag. As they munch on goodies like cotton candy and elephant ears, students can try out novelty entertainment activities like the Gladiator Joust, Freaky Fotos, the Orbitron, Human Bowling and the Velcro Wall.

Area radio stations will broadcast live from the event, which is coordinated by the Campus Activities Board and the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Programs.

Bronco Bash 2002 is sponsored by Kinko's, CenturyTel, Computer Outfitters, 89.1 WIDR, 103.3 WKFR and 107.7 WRKR. For more information, contact Ian Belanger in the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Programs at (269) 387-2115.
