The Mix It Up Day event took place at Bak on Dec. 1 and was designed so students could break down social barriers.

Dr. Bendfelt, school counselor and coordinator of the event said the goal of the event was to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for the students.

New to the school as a sixth grade communications major, Nicole Webb added how she also thought the event would have a lasting impact on students.

Webb said Mix It Up Day benefited the students by making new friends. Especially as a sixth grader, school could be overwhelming without friends by one’s side. But, the event allowing students to wear crazy clothes and make new friends can make it feel more lighthearted.

Even though the event helped students break out of their shells, many may have been reluctant to sign up. Students would not want to leave their friend groups, and could be nervous or shy to try something new.

Nonetheless, Mix It Up Day will still serve as an asset, giving students the opportunity to socialize and support each other.
