Scores of freshmen were at Chabad on thursday nght before classes to enjoy a pizza party. The next day,hundreds of freshmen joined by upperclassmen enjoyed the first Shabbat back at school with pre-Shabbat cocktail hour, spirited services, delicious Shabbat dinner followed by a dessert buffet and the opportunity to make new friends and reconnect with old ones. Chabad was packed to the rafters all Shabbat emptying out only after Havdallah.
A record number of freshmen gathered at Chabad the day before classes begun to enjoy a bagel brunch, hilarious ice-breakers and tye-dying their spanking new Chabad t-shirts. Amazing how quickly Binghamton can begin to feel like home...

Not one, but two intense days of blood donations marked what has become the biggest blood drive held at Binghamton University each year. The drive is held in memory of the victims of 9/11 and was co-sponsored this year with PhiDe Fraternity. A total of 128 donations were collected, and sent to the hospitals saving up to 326 patients (because of how we use the blood and the double-red cells). This beat BU’s record of 123 in 2009.

What can be more fun than mixing, kneading and shaping the very best bread in the world?- Challah! And the best part: participants not only made their Challah from scratch, but also got to enjoy their own Challah on Friday night, or take it home and eat it immediately! Everyone at the workshop had a great time.

Not for the fainted hearted but definately for the intrepid and fun loving. A group of BU Chabad students took the fields for paint balling. Tired limbs and no regrets is what was reported from the battle field.
