Freshmen closing out their first week of college in the formation of a Block U is a relatively new tradition at the University of Utah. The Friday afternoon affair began back in 2013 when the Class of 2017 made its way onto the Rice-Eccles Stadium turf. Sponsored by the University's Office of Orientation and Transition (OOT), the photo shoot is a nice opportunity to meet other first-year students, get an up-close-and-personal feel of the football field, and nab a free tee-shirt. And it caps a week's worth of welcome events also sponsored by OOT.
