DU Freshman Pep Rally Video

Based on this video, it looks like on campus School Spirit is building at the University of Denver. The Freshman Pep Rally looks like it was a huge step in the right direction.

We've been banging the school spirit drum for the past six years at LetsGoDU. Looks like a good start for the upcoming hockey season.

Thats Mr. d-bag to you.

DU embeds their videos using Microsoft Silverlight which makes it difficult to place on the Blog.

Just follow the link.

I didn't even know they did these pep rallys; but it looks like the whole hockey team was there, with Coach - and a pretty good crowd, too. Good PR I guess.The trick is to entice all those kids to stay on campus & attend some atheletic events come the weekends.

As far as I know this is the first year of the Pep Rally.

Last year they did a great job of motivating the Freshmen class and it seemed to pay off. Now they are taking it to the next level.

The Athletic Department has really made a ton of improvements in the past six years. If they can build boisterous student crowds at sporting events (hoops, gymnastics and hockey), the general population in Denver will follow.

I think this is the third year that the Pioneer Pep Rally has been a part of the first-year student orientation program. They teach the frosh the fight song, they introduce players and coaches, and tell the kids what it means to be a Pioneer, and how vital they are to carry on traditions.

Things are picking up steam in the spirit dept, and getting into the freshman mindset before they get too jaded and ski-centric is crucial.

Hats off to DU for making this happen.

I actually am a Freshman an I have a few things to say; first of all, Anonymous, you're the d-bag. Second, we didn't LEARN the fight song...they played it and we "sang along" not knowing at all how it goes. It was a complete fail lol. Next time, whoevers in charge of discoveries week has to incorporate it into the First-Year Seminar Dialogues or the group meeting BEFORE the Pep Rally so that we're ready. ALSO, let us know that it's in Magness Arena so that we BRING A SWEATER! I was effing freezing and it made me not want to participate! Aside from the fact that there were many silent awkward moments because the transitions were't well planned. Last, the hockey coach actually did a good job at getting us excited for the hockey season, with the speech, and the doughnuts, and the promise of more doughnuts. So tonight, I am camping out for season tickets and so is pretty much my whole floor from halls. I hope this feedback helps. I'm joining USG so if you guys don't make changes then I WILL!!! And again anonymous..your a d-bag and a nazi.
