VESTAL, N.Y.—The Binghamton Athletic Department held its annual Welcome Back BBQ on Sunday afternoon at the Events Center for the student-athletes who will be competing this academic year. On hand to welcome the over 400 student-athletes were Athletic Director Patrick Elliott and University President Harvey Stenger.

As they arrived at the Events Center, each student-athlete was given a Bearcat T-shirt which on the back had the words “RESPECT ALL. FEAR NONE.”

Following introductory remarks by Stenger and Elliott, the various teams took part in icebreaker games before partaking in the cookout spread on the concourse of the Events Center.
