(It will also be set up in Hodson Hall to be signed earlier in the week.) Following the second set of the volleyball match, the Shore Steppers (the campus's step team) will perform. During the second half of the women's soccer game and first half of the men's soccer game, anti-hazing shirts will be fired into the crowd via t-shirt cannon.
