It is great to be back! Last night The University of Akron Department of Athletics held its annual Student-Athlete Welcome Back Picnic Sunday at Rhodes Arena. The event marked one of the few times during the academic year when all 450-plus of the department's student-athletes, coaching staffs, support staff and administrators are all in the same place at the same time.
Selected student-athletes from each sport as well as members of the department's management team participated in a variety of games based off the popular "Minute to Win It" TV game show. It was a great night of fun competitions. As you can see in the video's our girls had fun competing against their fellow Zips! Even Coach Kest competed in the challenging pencil catch!
We are very excited for the start of the school year! GO ZIPS!!!
