The event was a big success with over 1,500 students along with numerous faculty and several alumni and friends in attendance. Students received free polo shirts and were treated to a food menu of barbeque, beans, coleslaw, chips and soft drinks served by students from the Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality and Resort Management. Live entertainment was provided by Rockin Robins DJs who directed student dance contests and gave out free prizes. Student organizations, FCBE academic units and Fogelman Promise representatives staffed tables to provide information to students on their activities. The big addition to Promise Day this year was Fogelman Feeds, a new initiative to get students, faculty and staff involved in volunteering to bag food packages for the hungry. Over 10,000 bags were packaged during Fogelman Promise Day.
