Freshfest in East Quad Today

Freshmen, on your way back home from a long day of classes, you can stop by the East Halls Quad from 5-7 p.m. for Freshfest, hosted by the University Park Undergraduate Association. You can stop by to get better acquainted with others on campus, and to learn a bit about the UPUA and student government.

The event will feature a DJ, free pizza, and Creamery ice cream. Representatives from both UPUA and the State College Borough Council will be in attendance to meet you and answer your questions about student and/or local government.  UPUA representatives will also be handing out applications for all those interested in joining.
