CBS' "Star Search" winner for 2004, comedian Horace H.B Sanders entertained students for the first activity during Welcome Week. After his performance Saturday night in Ransdell Chapel, a watermelon fest was held outside the chapel in the amphitheater.

Andrew Ward, director of student activities, is offering a game, the “Welcome Week Trading Card Challenge,” in which students collect “trading cards” at each of the events.
