VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton University athletics welcomed back its 450+ student-athletes with a barbeque Monday afternoon at the Events Center.
The event officially kicked off the 2014-15 school year for BU athletics. President Harvey Stenger and Director of Athletics Patrick Elliott addressed the students, who then enjoyed a buffet before heading out to watch the men’s soccer team host Marist in the team’s home opener.
“Don’t waste a second,” Elliott told the group. “I challenge you to see what you can do to make a difference every second. I appreciate all that you embody in the community with your service, your conduct, academic performance and in the athletics arena. We want excellence but always with honor. One hundred percent responsibility ... zero percent excuses. We’re going to get better together. Go Bearcats!”
