At last weekend's home football game the athletic department kicked off the fourth quarter frenzy, a new program designed to keep students in the stands for the entire game.

The Richmond Rowdies were the first organization to sponsor the event and one student won a colored nook, said Sarah Huang, president of the Richmond Rowdies.

Michele Cox, Richmond's director of study abroad, immediately emailed the five Japanese students studying at Richmond, the two Westhampton students studying in Osaka, Japan, and their families and notified the study abroad office in Osaka.
