Members of the staff of the Collegian have attended Mr./Ms. Bronco for the past three years as observers. This year, we noted the atmosphere of this campus-wide event was far from welcoming to the few prospective students and their families present in the audience.
The atmosphere was also actively hostile toward the student leaders representing their organizations on stage, as well as SAA staff and emcee Nick Hoff. Hoff also emceed last year, but had to adjust his routine to request respect and attention from disruptive audience members in the balcony of the Chapel.
