On April 19th, the IUP Ambassadors participated in a yearly event called the buddy Olympics. This gives the new members an opportunity to bond with an older member who is given the title of their buddy. The job of a buddy is to help mentor and teach the younger member anything they might need to know. It also helps eliminate the difficulties of joining a new organization and increases friendship within the group. This year the event was organized by Kelly Evangelista and Amanda Rice. The teams of buddies participated in a lot of different activities. Some of these activities included an egg toss and a blind-folded obstacle course. Greece, with members Julia Snickles and Maddie Trego, won best shirts and outfits. Djibouti, with members Katie Fox and Courtney Warren, won Buddy Olympics by winning the balloon shave and Ships and Islands.
