Students, faculty, staff, and family members of Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) enjoyed a night in the spotlight at the February 28, 2013, men’s basketball game between the Boston University Terriers and the Stony Brook University Seawolves. Thanks to coordination between GSDM Student Affairs and BU Athletics, it was BU Dental Night at Agganis Arena.
For BU Dental Night, members of the GSDM family were treated to free tickets to the game. In addition, representatives from each of the pre-doctoral classes were featured in a halftime knockout contest. The contest participants were Kabir Ram AS 13, Joseph Hackstie DMD 13, Paul Toor AS 14, Jay Patel DMD 14, Ramandeep Samra DMD 15, and Kevin Treger DMD 16. Kevin Treger won the shootout and received a prize of $100 to Andre’s Café.
For members of the GSDM community, BU Dental Night at Agganis provided a refreshing time-out from the demands of day-to-day work—the type of respite that is a vital element for success.
