New students, Western alumni and friends are invited to join the 4th Annual Paint B’ham Blue for WWU celebration to kick off the start of the academic year!
- Students will join a procession from Red Square, led by WWU President Sabah Randhawa, and walk downtown to a warm welcome by alumni and the greater Western community. And…
- Students will sign their names on the WWU Vikings Banner, to later be displayed on campus.
- A special downtown festival – exclusively for the WWU community – will take place in Depot Market Square featuring dance tunes, food trucks, local vendors and giveaways (even some FREE FOOD!)
- We’ll count down to light the iconic Herald sign in WWU Blue…and that’s when the fireworks begin.
Where to meet?
Commuter students meet at 5:15pm in Red Square by the big, red sculpture.
