Buenafication Day 2014 started with a bang, literally. Student Senators smacked pots and yelled their way through student dorms, waking everyone for the day of service.

After everyone was awake, the opening ceremonies began and motivated everyone to have fun with service! There were service competitions, a beaver train, and President Moore took the best selfie ever taken at BVU.
