Last night just before 10 p.m. in Raleigh, N.C., thousands of Duke students began boarding busses to their nearby Target. The game plan? Deck out their dorms, stock their mini-fridges and pick up last-minute stuff for class. This late-night #TargetRun is a 7-year-running “welcome week” tradition at Duke (and a long-standing, 16-year-plus Target tradition at campuses across the country). As the students swished through the doors, they were greeted by a DJ spinning music, tons of snacks, samples, savings and more…with one big (six-foot-eight) surprise:
Grant Hill! The Duke basketball legend (and former all-star pro baller) stopped by to surprise lucky fans. He posed for pics, helped shop for planners and groceries and shot a few hoops in the sporting goods aisle. Of course, there was a little reminiscing about his alma mater—and he even gave a few tips to help students get to the top of their new-to-campus game: manage your time wisely and find the library!
Here’s your court-side peek into the fun:
