Marquette hosted its annual Student-Athlete Welcome Back Dinner at the Al McGuire Center Sunday evening, marking the official start to another athletic campaign.
The evening's program included a scavenger hunt, introduction of freshmen and transfers by the coaching staff and a brief program. Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) president Rachel Stier (volleyball) and vice-president John Mau (men's soccer) hosted the event.
Vice President and Director of Athletics Larry Williams welcomed the group of nearly 300 student-athletes back to campus and the women's track & field team was recognized as the winner of the 2012-13 Magis Team Spirit Award, which is given annually to the team that exhibits the greatest commitment to the support of its fellow athletes, excellence in academics and involvement in community service.
