Monday 12TH 5-7pm Street Fest! Enjoy a night out on Washington Street with Sodexho supplying dinner and refreshments. While the Res Life team had tones of outdoor games to be played and what’s a street fest without music and don’t forget that you can pick up some sweet sunglasses from the 80’s. Due to the weather the Street Fest was canceled this year but will surely be returning next year so come on out and enjoy the festivities.
Tuesday 13TH GLOWSTICK PAAARTTYY!
This was one of the best nights that I have had here at Upper Iowa University. The party started around 9 o’clock and it was jumpin jumpin. Soon enough the crowd grew like wild fire and everyone was asking… who let the dogs out who? who? The music was like living on a prayer and you didn’t wana stop till you got enough. They was ultimate Frisbee in the dark with glow Frisbees and people were making arm bracelets, necklaces, belts that could be used to hold up their pants, and I think I even saw a few people with glasses made out of glow sticks. When the party really got started they handed out cotton candy on sticks and the music picked up to doing the Cupid Shuffle. I tried doing the Cupid shuffle but ended up more like doing the casual walk away because no one wanted to do it with me!
Wednesday 14TH MATTRESS FIELD DAY!
This was another great event held by the Res Life squad and I was very impressed with the work put into it. This was a time for the students to come out side and hangout in Grace Meyer Square and let loose and soak up the rays from the sun. Along with working on my nice tan I was offered a rather refreshing smoothie and let me tell you that nothing could have felt better on this 80 degree day. Now it was not just the smoothie that made everything great but also the fun games that were going on, which included mattress surfing where people would try to see how long they could stay up until the fell hard onto the ground. When the men showed up to the event it was time to show off their muscles so they took turns seeing who could throw the mattresses the furthest. Some of the girls even got involved with the contest and tried to show up the men.
Thursday 14th Are You Smarter than a freshman!
This event is being held in the east cafeteria tomorrow night at 7:00pm and will consist of the same settings just like the TV show are you smarter than a 5th grader. Lucky contestants will be able to be contestants for the night and see if they are really smarter than college freshman. We will have a special guest contestant that will be unnamed but will be surely able to answer man of the questions so the contestants better be ready. Prizes will be given away and it will be a great event to come to because all you will need to do is sit back and relax. Who knows maybe you can even help out on a few questions.
Friday 16th Camp for Hunger!
To end off the week of festivities we are going to have a camp for hunger starting in the morning and going all the way through the night. People are allowed to stay in Grace Meyer Square in tents and this will help raise awareness for people who aren’t as fortunate as us. Come on out and help make a difference and enjoy the festivities that we will have to offer!!
