The 2017 Mud Games, an annual VWU tradition, took place on Friday, September 29, on Rose Lawn. Open to teams of students, faculty, and staff, Mud Games is sponsored by the Wesleyan Activities Council (WAC). This year’s event brought out 18 teams and nearly 100 participants, who competed in activities such as the three-legged race, crab walk, chimp race, and dizzy bat relay. The 2017 winning team was Alpha Phi Fraternity, Inc., our newest Greek organization. They walked away muddy and with $250, bragging rights and the Mud Games trophy! The very first Mud Games were held in the fall of 1995 when rain during the “Outrageous Olympics” turned to mud.
