Northern Kentucky University freshmen gathered Aug. 24 en masse at Regents Hall and the University Center. They were attending Fresh Fusion, a staple event during Welcome Week, created by the New Student Orientation Committee. The “Fresh” fun started in Regents Hall at 4 p.m., where students saran-wrapped each other, competed in an obstacle course and drank a seven-day-old pizza, coke and ice cream concoction. It wasn’t hazing, but rather a theme of Fresh Fusion called Northern Reality’s “Fear Factor,” hosted by NKU alumni Elizabeth Costello, who appeared on NBC’s “Fear Factor.” “I thought it was really fun for something I wasn’t really expecting,” freshman Jacquelyn Valentine said.
