Celebrate the start of a new term and connect with the NEOMED community at the Campus-Wide Picnic 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. today, Aug. 31, in the Courtyard.
Enjoy a picnic buffet lunch, music and activities for faculty, staff and students. Activities include cornhole, a selfie station and a variety of table activities.
Thanks to all who participated in The Pulse picnic polls. Here are the results:
Favorite Hot Dog Topping
“Other” was the winner of this poll, with nearly one-third of respondents choosing this option, including a few who expressed their disdain for the processed food. Among the write-in votes were Coney sauce, coleslaw, and tears of existential dread. Among the remaining choices, ketchup beat mustard by three votes.
Favorite Picnic Food
Hamburgers/veggie burgers and watermelon/other fruit tied for first place as the favorite picnic foods of the NEOMED community, followed by hot dogs and potato salad/other salad. Baked beans got a shout out as the only write-in vote.
The Campus-Wide Picnic is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Office of Student Services, NEOMED Student Council and the Office of Human Resources.
