Aiming to help foster relationships between students, faculty and staff, Racers Empower hosted a back-to-school Ice Cream Social in the Waterfield Library Breezeway.

The event was “an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to come together, get to know each other and have an ice cream treat,” according to a statement from Racers Empower. Attendees also played lawn games like cornhole to kick off the new semester.

Sophomore biology major Claudia Ebbecke said the event seemed well-received.

“There were lots of things to do,” Ebbecke said. “It was a very nice event and was perfectly refreshing on such a hot day to sit in the shade and eat an ice cream sandwich.”

Racers Empower is a collaborative effort by students, faculty and staff, who aim to help students practice good habits for their mental health and wellbeing. Meetings have included healthy snacks, games and pet therapy to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.

Racers Empower meets from noon to 1 p.m. on the last Monday of every month in the atrium of Alexander Hall. All members of the University community are encouraged to attend.
