UU Celebrates 60th Anniversary With Birthday Bash on the Quad
Serving as the official student programming board on campus, University Union (UU) has a long history of bringing entertainment to students since their founding in 1962. While the mission has remained the same, the activities, events and performances have evolved over time to meet the interests of each class of students. To mark this history and celebrate with an afternoon of activities, UU is hosting their 60th Birthday Bash on the Quad from 1 to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 29.
The event will feature free snacks (while supplies last), including samples from Limp Lizard, Toss & Fire and Birdsong Café food trucks, inflatables, silent disco, a 360-photo booth, tie-dying, activations from several companies and many giveaways—a variety and breadth of attractions the group is excited to bring to campus given the event space. [Please note: Unfortunately, due to a mechanical issue that could not be resolved in time for tomorrow’s event, the Ferris wheel will not be available.]
“University Union has done an amazing job creating a full line-up of activities and providing an exceptional experience for the Syracuse University community in celebration of their anniversary,” says Tim Johnson, associate director in Student Activities. “I encourage our campus community to support the UU students and join us in ending the semester on a high note.”
Students, faculty and staff are invited to participate in all the activities.
Shortly following the 60th Birthday Bash is the Block Party concert featuring co-headliners Baby Keem and 2 Chainz, with support from 070 Shake and A-Trak. The concert begins at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are still available for $25.
