Celebrate UC OctoberFest:
A True Collaboration of Fun!
It’s that time again! Join us in celebrating all the fun things about the month of October. The University Centers and other departments around campus are preparing to kick off UC OctoberFest! Students will have opportunities to win some great prizes like a $100 Ticketmaster, and $200 Southwest Airline Gift cards. Play games, get “spooked out” at the Haunted Penthouse, attend a scary movie night, and so much more!
Additionally, students can win FREE groceries (valued at $150) by guessing the combined weight of our pumpkins as part of our “Big ASSumption Pumpkin Contest”, which will take place from October 24th – October 30th. Stop by the front of the UC to put your guess in.
