The 2018–19 school year is officially here, and that means STATIC is ready to amp up your year! The Student Activity Committee (STATIC) is kicking things off by cosponsoring some awesome events with other IUP offices, organizations, and programs during
Welcome Weekend, which will run from Thursday, August 23, through Sunday, August 26. These events are free and open to the entire IUP campus community!
Let's get this new year started with everybody’s favorite Friday-night tradition: Bingo with BACCHUS! Compete with your new peers for awesome prizes, and chow down on some great food. After, continue the fun with Trivia Night, hosted
by your Welcome Weekend leaders.
Bingo and Trivia Night not your thing? No problem! Check out the Low Key Room in the HUB Monongahela Room to chill out with friends. Opposed to the high energy in the HUB Ohio Room, this will feature relaxing music, board games, great
conversations, and the ability to unplug after a super stressful day of moving in and saying goodbye to family and friends.
Do you have what it takes to be IUP’s top DJ? Prove it at Welcome Weekend’s DJ Battle! All current IUP students are eligible to participate. Students in attendance will vote for their favorite DJ of the evening. The winner will DJ at
the Happening at the HUB event on Saturday, August 25, and get paid to do it. To register, you must complete the DJ Battle application and submit a 30-second demo. If your demo doesn’t successfully upload with the online application, submit the file to firstname.lastname@example.org. STATIC is still accepting registrants!
Enjoying the music from DJ Battle? Well, stick around and tie-dye a shirt while munching on some ice cream! The shirts are officially-branded “This Is My Welcome Weekend Shirt,” cosponsored by a variety of IUP partnering organizations. The ice cream is
provided by Fraternity and Sorority Life.
Live on the big screen, under the stars, check out
Avengers: Infinity War. We’ll supply the movie, popcorn, and other snacks. You just bring your PJs, blankets, pillows, and some friends. In Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, and the rest of the Avengers unite
to battle their most powerful enemy yet—the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain
as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
Come one, come all, to the annual Happening at the HUB event, co-sponsored by STATIC and MCSLE to celebrate another Welcome Weekend here at IUP! The event features free food, music, games, activities, rides, crafts, prizes, and so, so
much more! All of this is spread across the HUB Atrium, Ohio Room, Susquehanna Room, Monongahela Room, Allegheny Room, and more. There’s even a late-night buffet in the HUB Food Court at 9:30 p.m. sponsored by Aramark. Be sure to check out this event—you
won’t want to miss it.
Again, these events are completely free and open to the entire IUP campus community. For more information, visit the STATIC website, Twitter page,
