PAC brings back Spirit Week starting on January 23rd

To start off the new semester, The Pioneer Activities Council (PAC) is hosting a campus-wide Spirit Week to rally Marietta College’s Pioneer pride.

Spirit Week kicks off on Monday, January 23rd, with a campus-wide Navy Blue and White Day. Be sure to wear MC gear and show it off on social media for a chance to win a $50 gift card to the campus bookstore. Use the tag #PioSpiritWk17 on Instagram and Snapchat @MariettaPAC, Twitter @PioPAC, and Facebook at Marietta College PAC. The winner will be chosen on Instagram.

On Tuesday, January 24th, PAC’s weekly trivia will test students on their basketball knowledge. Join us for Basketball Trivia at 7:00 p.m. in Izzy’s. A special prize will be awarded to the winning team and cumulative points will be kept throughout the semester.

On Wednesday, January 25th, there will be a Half-court Speed Shot competition during halftime of the women’s basketball game at Fenton Court. The game starts at 6:00 p.m. and halftime will start around 7:00 p.m. Anyone can line up to take a shot and go to the back of the line to try again. Those who can make a basket are awarded a $25 gift card.

Later on Wednesday, PAC will be giving away 300 exclusive Pioneer Beanies starting at 7:30 p.m. at Fenton Court, just before the men’s basketball game. If you’re a student, come early with a student ID to receive these limited beanies!

Wednesday is also Whiteout Day so wear white as we root on the Pioneers.

On Friday, January 27th, PAC will help you “Gear Up for Game Day!” In preparation for Saturday’s game against Baldwin Wallace, you will be able to craft your own spirit gear such as design-your-own pennants & posters, beads, pom-poms, and more. All the supplies are free to use! Be there from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at Upper Gilman.

On Saturday, January 28th, come to the men’s basketball game early for the Rally Towel Giveaway.
