Annual Activities and Events
The New Student Convocation is the official welcoming ceremony for freshmen and transfer students to the university community by the provost, faculty, staff, and student government. This event is held before the beginning of classes in the fall.
The Student Involvement Fair is a great opportunity for student organizations and campus departments to promote the various programs and activities that they offer. This event is held during the first month of classes in the Fall semester.
Fall Fest allows the community to interact with the students, faculty, and staff on campus. With music, food and fun, the Fall Fest is a great way to celebrate the final days of nice weather!
The Women’s Leadership Conference is a great way to get involved and network with the community.
Spring Fling is the equal of Fall Fest but it’s the best way to top off the school year. It’s the place to be with the presence of music, food, fun, and a lot of people! This event is held in April.
If your student enjoys social networking, music, films and culture, your student should participate in our Student Program Board. The Program Board is the talented group of students who brainstorm, plan, organize and provide the campus with a variety of outstanding events!
