BUNCO!! Are you game?

Bunco!! It’s the social dice game that’s generating great interest among many Health and Exercise Physiology students.

Dr. Laura Borsdorf has been taking her Health and Exercise Psychology, Wellness and Fitness for Adult Populations, and Death, Dying and Grief classes to Frederick Living, an continuing care facility located in Frederick, PA. Dr. Borsdorf’s classes have been participating in Bunco at Frederick for over eight years. At Frederick Living, students have an opportunity to enhance their definition of wellness, especially with regard to how wellness is defined for seniors. Ursinus students partner with Frederick retirees not only to enhance their knowledge and understanding of specific wellness and aging issues, but also to gain an awareness of the impact of social activities on the population; that is where BUNCO comes in.  Throughout the semester, students will spend several evenings with the retirees at Frederick playing BUNCO, a fun fast moving dice game.  Students look forward to returning each time and many build lasting relationships.  Fun is had by all, especially those decreeing in a loud voice, BUNCO!
