Burkett, of Middletown, an aviation maintenance technology major.This past week's Wildcat House Party, though moved inside by Thursday's heavy rains, helped keep the summertime vibe alive despite the start of classes. Held in the Field House, the event featured food and Polynesian dancers, as well as a "wax hand" novelty, inflatable climbing wall, obstacle courses and a photo booth. Sponsors for the fall tradition were the Wildcat Events Board, Student Government Association, Residence Life and the Off-Campus Housing Organization.
