On March12, the Bob Jones University student body came together for a day of friendly competition, fun and fireworks during “Gold Rush Daze.”

The Gold Rush Daze competition happens just once every four years. BJU senior Victoria Sparkman said this time frame helps the student body look forward to it. “I think of it like the Bob Jones Olympics,” Sparkman said.

The BJU student body was divided into two teams, Green Thunder and Red Lightning, with faculty being able to join either team. While the competition games kicked off in the afternoon, the day was started with faculty members serving breakfast in bed to students in the residence halls.
