WMUL-FM Car Bash Prepares for Homecoming

Students paid $1 to bash a car colored to represent ODU in preparation for Homecoming 2023.

Destroying a car can be quite the stress reliever, said a director for Marshall’s student radio station at its 21st annual car bash.

“It’s just a very good way to release all of our stress and built-up anger that we have going towards our opponents,” said Samantha Riddle, WMUL’s social media director.

The station hosted the WMUL-FM Car Bash on Thursday, Sept. 28, at Buskirk Field. Students paid $1 to hit a car decorated for Old Dominion University, the University’s opponent for the approaching Homecoming game. This year’s car displayed different shades of blue on the body and neon green on the wheels.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., participants received sledgehammers, gloves and protective equipment to put a dent in the vehicle. They also signed a waiver before picking up the safety glasses.

Students Simone Svingos and Kiana Ramberac found the experience to be an exhausting, yet a helpful one.

“I have been here for three years, and this is the first time I’ve come down here,” Svingos said. “I am really excited that I actually did it for the first time.”

“I’ve always seen it out, and it looked really fun,” Ramberac said. “This is basically an outside rage room.”

The bashed car will display at the Homecoming parade Friday, Sept. 29, where community members will have the opportunity to check out the damages.
