The latest Trivia Night consisted of questions about all about UMF and prizes from the UMF bookstore. There are several Trivia Nights offered throughout the year and all with different themed questions.
Dinner and a Movie
During the end of the Spring semester we offered free pizza to all students and showed the new Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in one of the auditoriums on campus. This was great for students to take a break from homework and studying and catch a movie right on campus with a friend.
There are several different Gaming Nights on campus that consist of Magic, electronic games, and board games. A popular electronic game night is the Just Dance dance off. Students also enjoyed our Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples Game Nights. This was another great event to take a break from academics and come enjoy a game with friends.
