Incoming freshmen and transfer students at McNeese State University have an opportunity to receive a crash course on what it means to be a Cowboy at the seventh annual Cowboy Camp Aug. 23-24, 2014.

This new two-day format will be held the weekend prior to the beginning of fall classes, with students learning all about McNeese history and Cowboy traditions before entering a classroom.
"We expanded the format to include so much more," said Kedrick Nicholas, director of Holbrook Student Union and Activities. This includes providing students information about different resources available to them on campus, a pep rally in the Quad, a pop culture game show with a chance to win over $1,000 in scholarships and cash prizes, a meeting with Greek organizations and Watermania. Also, participants get to move in early to the residence halls.
"Cowboy Camp is about connecting students to all facets of college life before fall classes begin," said Nicholas.
The cost is $40 per student, which includes the two-day Cowboy Camp experience, four meals, two T-shirts and entry into drawings for McNeese gear and scholarships.
