Wow! Gold Rush 2019 was an absolute blast. This year Student Government partnered with the Patriot Activities Council and the Resident Student Association to host one of the most popular events of the fall semester.
Gold Rush kicked off with a lively tailgate outside of EagleBank Arena followed by giveaways, games, and great pre-game activities at 5:30 PM. Well before doors opened there was already a line of eager students waiting to receive one of the free Gold Rush 2019 t-shirts, beanies, or caps. We gave away hundreds!
Parents, siblings, and relatives visiting for Family Weekend were treated to an extra special night of basketball madness. The Patriots won 76 – 65 against the Longwood Lancers. Check out one of our favorite moments from the game here.
Tonight’s success though wasn’t without months of preparation and handwork by all the partners involved. We want to specially thank both the Secretary for University Life, Logan Hoover, and the Chairman for the University Life Committee, David O’Connell, for their dedication over the last several weeks.
Most importantly, thank you Patriots for coming out and showing your support. Cheers to a successful Gold Rush 2019!
