Taking place on the Football Team's bye week Saturday, Chariot Week is capped off with the esteemed Chariot Race. Teams throughout Keough, West Quad Dorms, and the rest of Campus come together to construct wooden chariots during the week. Teams designate four people to push the chariot as well as one person to stand at the back to bask in the wind and the glory of royalty. Races contain two teams and ontinue in bracket style until only one team remains. Separate race brackets are competed in by female dorms. There is also a long distance race that ends with tired legs, muddy faces, and big smiles. Our Chariot Races are accompanied by fantastic pizza and a petting zoo featuring our signature kangaroo, "Jack". Yes, it is a real kangaroo!
Our Annual Toga Danceis a big part of our Chariot Week Celebration. It is the final event and is always held in LaFortune Ballroom. For this dance, the Men of Keough use bedsheets as makeshift togas as they gear up for a night of fun, food, and crazy dancing!
