Summer is filled with barbeques, road trips, and beach days! As it comes to a close, I will miss the strolls around Wynwood and, of course, the Pokemon Go takeover (best come back ever of a 90’s favorite)! Now that classes will soon be in session, the fun stops… not!
Let’s be honest, college life is to be enjoyed. No one wants to miss out on the fun. Nights in Miami are like kernels in the microwave; it’s POPPIN’! Just because the money is tight and you refuse to break the law does not mean that your Snap Chat event-brag cannot be the envy of all your friends.
Here are three free events on three different campuses for the first week of school! Let me repeat that. Three FREE events on campus! The Canes, the Panthers, and the Owls are all making headlines for their welcome week! It is on campus, so there is no excuse not to go!
- University of Miami – Canes After Dark – August 26th
Now you know it is all about THE U!! (Seminoles and Gators – we know you may see things differently.) The Canes are up to something guys! I heard through the grapevine that Canes After Dark is the way to go on a Friday night. We all know that whatever The U does, they do it BIG! So, for this year’s welcome back shindig, the Canes brought in the awesome Miami Urban Contemporary Experience (MUCE) team. MUCE305 will be there with its signature Pop-up Gallery. Bringing the best contemporary art to campus on Friday August 26th. There will be live performances to keep you pumped, free food to keep you energized, and beautiful art to keep you engaged! No need to go to Wynwood. The Art District is coming to the Canes’ campus!
- Florida International University – Week of Welcome Kick-Off Barbeque – August 22nd – 11:00am
The Panthers are on the prowl! What better way to kick-start the first week of school than with a sizzling barbeque on the Florida International University (FIU) Biscayne Bay Campus?! C’mon, who doesn’t love a barbeque? It is summer all over again. Your summer does not have to end just because school is starting back up, especially here in Miami. On August 22nd, from 11:00am-2:00pm, make your way to the AC-1 Atrium at FIU’s Biscayne Bay campus for a fun-filled event with free food and a good time! Come join us to extend your summer for as long as possible.
- Florida Atlantic University – Outdoor Movie – August 27th – 8:00pm
The Owls are watching over you as you lay under the stars! On August 27th, on the admin lawn, join the SG Program Board and Multicultural Program Board for a movie under the stars. That’s right! You can enjoy a great movie under the cool breeze of the Miami skyline. At 8:00pm, make your way to FAU’s Boca Raton campus with your favorite blanket, your favorite person and your favorite movie snack!
Campus Life is not boring. Get out your dorm, go meet someone, and have fun! Head to your nearest campus and take advantage of the all of the extraordinary fun for start of the Fall semester!
