Celebrating milestones at Rohrer Fest
The School of Innovation & Entrepreneurship (SIE) partnered with the Rohrer College of Business (RCB) to kick off the fall semester with Rohrer Fest.

The festival featured a variety of groovy attractions including food trucks, lawn games, Saxbys Energy Garden where students could sample flights of cold brew and maté spritz energy drinks, a Wonka candy station, a photo booth with stylized Andy Warhol portraits, DJ, a tie-dye station for t-shirts given out at the event, Primitive Axe and a roller rink right inside Business Hall 104.
