Students wage Olympic battle

Gingerbread Brookings Sophomore Melanie Reeves (center left, in red), junior Nancy Ye and sophomore Greg Opara play tug-of-war during the 2012 Residential College Olympics March 31 on the South 40. In this annual — and very popular — event sponsored by the Congress of the South 40, all of the residential colleges go head-to-head in a variety of activities. This year’s Olympics included 17 events, such as soccer, limbo, a 5K, dodgeball and water balloon-filling competitions. Park/Mudd Residential College took first place overall.
