All Campus Picnic


Each year New Student Programs host the Community Resource Fair at Dining Services’ All Campus Picnic.  Student meals are sponsored by Dining Services and the President’s Office. Faculty and staff are graciously sponsored by U.S. Bank. Last year over 5,000 participants celebrated the new academic year while enjoying a barbecue lunch, music and the community fair.  The 2017 All Campus Picnic is Friday, August 18 from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm. This year’s picnic will be located on Cougar Way (formerly Colorado Street).

How to Reserve a Table

Various organizations, community groups, student organizations, and departments have the ability to host a table at our community during the picnic. This is a great way to share information with new and returning students, faculty and staff. To reserve a table please fill out this form and submit it to New Student Programs by August 9, 2017. Please note that this is a zero waste event and coffee, tea, or pre-packaged commercial items are the only edible products allowed to be given out at community fair tables. This year the picnic will be held on Cougar Way (formerly Colorado St) August 18, just after University Convocation.
