ROC'n the Boat

Campus pond boat race caps exciting week of ROC Fest activities

Eastern students proved they are more than okay with a little healthy competition last week as the Resident Housing Association (RHA) hosted its annual Residents on Campus (ROC) Festival.

During ROC Fest, students banded together by the dorm-load to vie for the coveted ROC Guitar trophy. This year’s competitions ranged from bingo, an obstacle course, a scavenger hunt, dorm window decorating, and the infamous boat race across the campus pond.

Results are still being tallied by RHA to determine who'll walk away as top dorm for the year. In the meantime, relive this year’s boat race action with the above video. Darius Holland, a Communication Studies major, provides the soundtrack; you can find more of his work here.
