Medaille Community Celebrates the College’s 50th Anniversary on College Colors Day
Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends came together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Medaille College on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, in conjunction with Medaille’s third annual College Colors Day event. It was a fun-filled day packed with excitement and activities on Medaille’s Buffalo campus, which included an appearance by J & L Blvd BBQ food truck, a photo booth by Ayres Photography and free Perry’s ice cream for those in attendance.
The Edge radio station hosted a "Campus Crash" live broadcast from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and other games, activities and giveaways were run by Medaille student clubs and organizations.
During the day, students, faculty, staff and alumni also filled out “Why I celebrate Medaille” notes, in honor of the College's 50th anniversary. Notes were combined to create a blue and yellow collage on a wall in the Sullivan Center, as well as a collage in the Rochester campus library.
College Colors Day culminated with the Medaille Pride Awards Social and Athletic Hall of Fame Induction that evening. The ceremony honored some of the finest athletes and contributors in the College’s athletic history, as well distinguished alumni and other individuals who go above and beyond to make significant contributions to the Medaille community every day. Read a summary of the ceremony and award recipients in the news story about the event.
The Rochester campus celebrated College Colors Day with a week of treats and giveaways, on September 4–6, 10 and 14, in order to accommodate Rochester students’ class schedules.
The Medaille community sincerely thanks the sponsors and partners who made all College Colors Day festivities possible, as well as everyone who attended or participated in activities.
