Continued from "Traditions 'Neath the Purple and White" story

New Lumberjacks are introduced to these traditions during Orientation, but those who want to learn more attend Jack Camp in August right before their first fall semester starts.

Begun in 2001, the three-day camp in Trinity welcomes incoming first-time and transfer students to the university each summer and helps them find their place within the Lumberjack family.

"Jack Camp is an opportunity for students to connect with their incoming class and learn about the university's rich history and traditions," said Lacey Folsom '08 & '11, director of SFA's Office of Student Engagement. "They not only learn cheers and chants that prepare them for sitting in the Purple Haze student section, but they get to create lasting memories with new friends."
