Upcoming Events

How it Works: Sign up for any event that you are able to attend. Your sign up = one entry into a lottery for a ticket to that event. At the conclusion of the sign up period, we will randomly select the confirmed participants from all of the sign-up submissions. Anyone not selected to participate will be added to the waitlist. You will receive a notification of your status (confirmed or waitlist). Only first year students are eligible to participate, unless noted otherwise. Questions about sign up? Email [email protected]

 

Cancellation Policy: If your participation is confirmed and you need to cancel your ticket, we ask that you do so at least 24 hours prior to the event start time by emailing [email protected]. If the event is on a Sunday or Monday, you must cancel no later than 5:00pm on the Friday prior, as weekend cancellations make it difficult to fill openings from the waitlist. Late cancellations and no-shows will result in a $15 fee added to your student account. This is to minimize the number of wasted tickets and maximize the number of students that are able to enjoy these experiences.

 

Sign-Ups for March Events are active from February 19 at 8:00am until February 26 at 9:00am. After that time, you can be added to the waitlist for any event by emailing [email protected].
