Briar Cliff is celebrating your arrival back on campus with Freeze Fest, a community winter-themed celebration on January 15. Besides having the chance to reconnect with your friends and win amazing prizes like giftcards to Amazon, Jimmy Johns, UberEats, Door Dash and Elfredo’s Pizza, the first 100 students to register will receive a free t-shirt.
While the competitions below are taking place, you can make crafts, cut snowflakes, decorate cookies, sip on hot chocolate and root beer floats, roast s’mores by the fire, win drawings for prizes and so much more!
Grab a friend and participate in the following Freeze Fest Competitions:
Sled Building Contest: Design and build a corrugated cardboard sled capable of withstanding the descent down the BCU hills. Sleds will be judged on durability and creativity.
Snowball Dodgeball: Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge with your 6-person team for an outdoor game of dodgeball. The last team standing wins a prize.
Stein Holding Contest: Competitors will hold a full 1 liter stein mug filled with root beer in front of their body with a straight arm, parallel to the ground. The last person holding wins a prize.
Hungry, Hungry Hippos: Work together with your hippo (teammate) to collect all the balls and win this outdoor game. Teammate #1 will lay down on a sled holding a basket. Teammate #2 will push and pull Teammate #1 on the sled by their legs to help them get the balls. Capture the most balls to win the prize.
Corn Hole Tournament: Teams of two compete in a winner’s bracket to find out who is the best BCU cornhole player. The winning team wins a prize.
