Ad Building turns into toboggan run

GD Star Rating

Sometime during the weekend of Jan. 20-21, 2007, following a six-inch snowfall, Herman Bubbert reappeared on campus after a long absence. With the help of some students, he built a toboggan run on the Ad Building steps in time to welcome prospective students for an Admissions Visit Day Jan. 22. A photo of then-Bethel President Barry Bartel and now-retired Vice President for Academic Affairs John Sheriff sliding down the run (garbed in their dress shirts and ties) made the rounds of Mennonite publications and The Newton Kansan. Cardboard signposts nearby directed travelers to “Barry Bartel Bungalow,” “Patty Shelly Point,” “Convocation Cabins,” “Dale Schrag Slalom” and “Mt. Menno Simons.”
