RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Felician University recently invited people to come out and show their support for the women’s and men’s basketball teams by joining in the fourth annual basketball “Green Out” night.

In the spirit of the event, both Felician teams wore their road green uniforms as they played against Bloomfield College.

Golden Falcon fans were encouraged to wear dark green. Everyone in attendance enjoyed free food and received a “Green Out” T-shirt to commemorate the night.

The Felician Sisters came out in full force in support of the basketball teams. There was much cheering and also many prayers from the teams’ biggest fans.

Sister Marie Teresa Soltys (affectionately known to all students as Sister T) displayed her green spirit by painting her face with school colors and flaunting green hair.

Despite two heartbreaking losses, it was a great evening overflowing with an abundance of Felician spirit.

Felician University with campuses in Lodi and Rutherford is an independent co-educational Catholic/Franciscan University founded and sponsored by the Felician Sisters in 1942 to educate a diverse population of students within the framework of a liberal arts tradition.

Felician offers programs in arts and sciences, business, nursing and teacher education. The university recently was ranked by Money Magazine as one of America’s Top Colleges and also listed among Money’s top 25 private colleges for merit aid.
