G(r)eek Olympics

Date Published: Mar. 2, 2017

The G(r)eek Olympics are a long standing tradition at the UD Rome Campus. The day before their departure for Greece, the students dress in togas (made from colorful bed sheets) and gather on the soccer field for an afternoon of competition and revelry. The student Olympians are divided into teams and contend against each other in athletic, artistic and creative games, such as the Orange Pass, Egg Toss, Slay the Dragon and the Shaving Cream Statue Competition. These games are a fun send off and contribute to the student’s general excitement for the upcoming days in Greece. Congratulations to team “Eternal Sadness” for their victory and prize of a staff-prepared forno pizza dinner!
