Thousands to gather for back-to-school bash
Sept. 3, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Crowds nearing 25,000 are expected to gather on the campus of Western Michigan University for the 29th annual Bronco Bash from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11, at Fountain Plaza near Miller Auditorium.
The gathering is an annual rite of passage into the fall semester, and a great way for students to check out what WMU and the local community have to offer. With live bands, lots of free stuff and novelty games with prizes, it is also a fun way for students to socialize, meet new people and celebrate the start of a new school year.
The bash is free and open to the public, and will feature more than 450 student organizations, WMU departments, community groups and local businesses giving out freebies and answering questions about their products, services and opportunities. The event will kick off with a Sept. 11 tribute and performance of the national anthem by the WMU Pep Band. A diverse lineup of live bands, including headliner Sugarcult, will play throughout the night.
