Tradition Week – day two: Bear Essentials/Outdoorsy. Bishop Blanchet ASB ban backpacks, so students find creative alternatives. From baskets to coolers to recycling bins to wagons to even shopping carts. Here is a collection of some of our favorite alternatives. Check back in tomorrow for an update for the 2022 Tradition Week.
