Campus Involvement

Held multiple times throughout the year, fests are an opportunity for campus organizations and university departments to recruit members and showcase what they have to offer to the greater student community. 

In the summer, student organizations table on the first night of Summer Orientation for our first-year students to get to know about the groups on campus. 

In the fall, we have Festifall on Central campus and Northfest on North campus during the first week of classes. 

In early January, we welcome everyone to an indoor location for Winterfest.

All of our fests are highly attended and have limited space. Please make sure to read all of the policies, procedures, and dates to ensure you don't miss out on this great opportunity!

Applications for Festifall & Northfest open on April 1st, 2020. Application processes differ by affiliation. Click on your organization’s affiliation below to see key dates, restrictions, and application requirements that apply to you:
