Meet the Colonials took place on Oct. 19 this past fall. The event is held every year as a sort of pep rally for both the women’s and men’s basketball team, and took place in the newly opened rec center. The banners were hung up for the women’s team winning the NEC division and making the NCAA tournament the previous year. Seen in this photo is RMU president Chris Howard making his thematic entrance shrouded in smoke and getting RMU students ready for the season to come.

In a season that saw the Colonials football team go 2-9 and finish last in their division, there weren’t many happy moments. However, that wasn’t the case when RMU upset Dayton on Sept. 2. This photo captures the moment immediately after freshman kicker Nick Bisceglia nailed the game-winning kick to upset the Dayton Flyers 13-10.
