Life's a Beach! Location: Engineering Green

It's back and better than ever! Our annual Life's A Beach event is going to be a blast! Take a load off and take a trip to paradise! Sink your fingers and toes into some moon sand and play your favorite beach games! Need a refresher? Cool down with some Kona Ice! Then, be sure to fill up on some delicious BBQ. Don't forget to grab a MusicFest shirt and tie-dye it in preparation for Friday!

Study Break Social; Location: Carnegie Green

Need to take a brain break? DUPB is bringing our own version of the beloved Punch Bowl Social to you! Come hang out and play giant-sized versions of classic lawn games, plus cornhole and volleyball. If you're looking for something a little more relaxing, join us for slime-making (let's be real: SO fun!). While you're hanging out, grab some sweet and/or savory treats - we'll have chicken tenders, acai bowls, smoothies, and a candy bar! 

Wednesday, May 23rd 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

DU Your Part!; Location: Carnegie Green

  Happy One Day DU! Come visit us throughout the day for some fun events that have a "do-good" element to them! 
Start your morning right by visiting our Breakfast Bar from 10-11:30 a.m. 
From 11-4 p.m., get artsy and go green - we invite you to come paint a pot, and for every one you decorate, we'll buy one tree to be planted in Rocky Mountain National Park's National Forest.
Then, from 12-3, "spread" the love with our PB&J Bar! Make a sandwich to donate, and take one as an afternoon snack for yourself.
Stick around for our Volunteer Fair from 3-5 p.m. to get connected with more service opportunities!
Finally, we love animals, you love animals, so join us for our Pet Party and say hello to some adorable pets!

Thursday, May 24th 5:00 - 9:00 PM

Night at the Carnival; Location: Driscoll Green

We're bringing a little magic and mystique to campus with our Night at the Carnival! Get active with some laser tag, mini golf, human foosball, and other popular carnival games; have some fun by getting your likeness immortalized in a professionally done caricature; or, be awed by our magician and aerial artists - so cool!! Be sure to dig in to some funnel cakes and food from Mac 'N Noodles, Mile High City Sliders, and Vegan Van!

Friday, May 25th 5:00 - 9:00 PM

Goodbye Driscoll! Location: Driscoll North

You heard us: Driscoll is coming down! Give it the "goodbye" it deserves by celebrating its history and looking to the future. We'll have an exhibit in the bridge throughout the day to appreciate all that Driscoll has been for us. Then, towards the evening, we'll have an opportunity for a little "creative destruction." Whether you're getting out your Week 9 stresses or showing your distaste for those signature blue subway tiles (love them or love to hate them), leave one last mark on the old Driscoll building. Portions will be saved and re-integrated into the new center.

Also on Friday, MUSICFEST 2018! Check out this link for more information:
