Students enjoy annual Pig Out festival

On Wednesday, Oct. 9, Augusta University showed students just how much they’re valued with the annual “Pig Out” Student Appreciation Day. One of the longest-running student life traditions at AU, Pig Out is hosted every fall semester around Fall Pause.

This year, the event included music, a rock-climbing wall, a wax hand station, and free fried chicken and sides catered by WifeSaver. The final count for Pig Out 2019 was 972 attendees, up from 954 last year.

At Pig Out 2019, more than 100 students participated in rock climbing, and the day’s DJ, TJ Pinder Borders, is an Augusta University student.

Talecia Cistrunk, vice president of membership for the Jaguar Production CREW, is pleased with the event this year. “We always want our events to be bigger and better than last year, and Pig Out 2019 definitely delivered.”

The CREW would like to thank the faculty, staff and student body for coming together for this year’s event.
