Students, Faculty & Staff:  It’s Time to Roll up Our Sleeves and Celebrate!

All students, faculty and staff in our college are invited to Brag + Boil, an end-of-the-year, all-college celebration!  Some will receive awards, and we’ll all enjoy an authentic shrimp boil.

Monday, April 30

4-6 p.m.

A+A Atrium

This is not just for people who are getting awards.  We all deserve to celebrate the end of a school year!  So come celebrate!

Why is it called Brag + Boil?

  • Obviously, we’ll be braggin’ on you…a lot…and we’ll all be enjoying a roll-up-your-sleeves, bring-me-the-hand-sanitizer, no-plates-allowed authentic shrimp boil right here in the A+A.

Music!  Food!  Awards!  It’s an end-of-the-year celebration no one in the college should miss.  (Plus, it’s free!)

Q&A about Brag + Boil

  • Do I need to RSVP?  No need to RSVP, but you do need to show up.  Don’t miss this fun, all-college celebration!
  • I’m a vegetarian/I don’t like shrimp or sausage.  Should I still come?  Yes! We’ll have a vegetarian option for you. Plus desserts for you and everyone else.
  • What should I wear?  It’s a shrimp boil…and it’s Study Day…and your reviews are over…and this is a celebration with your friends…So be casual.  Shorts, jeans and t-shirts are fine.  Sundresses and khakis are fine, too.  (Just know that liquid goodness might drip down your elbows as you enjoy the eats). Bibs will be provided.  (Seriously.)
  • Is this an annual thing?  Our first Brag + Boil was in 2017, and it was such a hit, we knew we needed to do it again.
  • Will we always have a shrimp boil?  Not necessarily…this year, everyone who comes to Brag + Boil will have a vote in what next year’s “B” will be.  Will it be “Brag + BBQ” or perhaps “Brag + Brats” or maybe “Brag + Blues?”  Or you might overwhelmingly vote for another “Boil.”  We’ll have lots of ideas for you, but be thinking about your favorite “B” food, too.
