Freshman Follies, a night of messy games with food and other objects for the Baylor University class of 2011, will be from 6 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at Bear Park next to the South Russell Residence Hall. The event is sponsored by Student Foundation.

This annual event held for the freshman class is free of charge and open to all members of the class of 2011. This fun night will be filled with messy games featuring nacho cheese, flour, ketchup and chocolate is sure to be a memorable experience.

Will Simmons, Student Foundation campus promotions co-chair, believes this event is a bonding experience for all Baylor students. "It brings the freshman class together to mingle and play and helps to build community," Simmons said. "Like all Baylor traditions, the memories of Freshman Follies bind together the Baylor Family, giving the class of 2011 shared experiences with the class of 1991, 2001 and 2021."

This year's theme is 2"007" and all participants are encouraged to dress in their best spy and secret agent costumes for the event. An obstacle course, interrogation chair and "Master of Disguise" game will help round out the spy theme.

"Freshman Follies is one of the most anticipated traditions for Baylor students," Simmons said. "Besides covering everyone with food, it is a great time to build camaraderie and community in the freshman class by sharing Baylor tradition and creating life-long memories."

Student Foundation members will be selling shirts in the Baylor Residential Restaurants during lunch hours until Oct. 9 for $10 each.
