Welcome Week Pride & Spirit recap

The Pride & Spirit rally is a really fun event during Welcome Week, where our incoming freshman class spends some time in TCF Bank Stadium meeting Tim Brewster (the Gophers' football coach) and learning traditional U of M chants and cheers in preparation for the first home football game. I was lucky enough to attend the Pride & Spirit this year. This was my first time in TCF Bank Stadium! As you can see, I was really excited about it.

It was great to see our freshman class so excited about being Golden Gophers! I also needed a refresher on the chants and cheers, and I now feel prepared for football season. At the end of the event, the Class of 2014 went on the field and created an "M". Check out this very cool time-lapse video to see it for yourself:
