ResU Fall Fest

The Fall semester is approaching quickly and we can’t wait to welcome new and returning students to campus. Please join us for a Fall Semester kick-off for ResU’s 1st Fall Fest, September 5-11! Our back-to-school kick-off will include free food, activities, networking, community service and fun.

Get to know the campus, meet with ResU leadership and community members while you enjoy treats brought to you by local Food Trucks. Want to get involved? Talk to reps from our student groups to learn more about how you can help out during the year or sign up to volunteer for our first annual Service Day. And the Pop-Up Shop will be back for one day only during Fall Fest so you can stock up on your favorite ResU apparel.

Whatever you’re in to, there will be something for everyone during this welcome week extravaganza! (Plan to arrive early, once food & supplies are gone, they’re gone.) Come for the food truck, stay for the experience!
