Department of Student Life

Tentative Special Events Schedule

Welcome back to another exciting year on campus here at the University of Fandom. The entire staff of the Dept. of Student Life has been busily planning all sorts of SPECIAL EVENTS to keep you busy when you're not attending classes. Immerse yourself in the experiences to be offered. Learn from your diverse peers and top-notch faculty. When you step foot on campus, expect a fresh perspective on people, events and places. Discover what it means to be come a true citizen of the Universe.

For this school year we are bringing back some events which are old favorites, as well as planning some new surprises for you. As always we are going to try to spice up the Homecoming Dance to make it exciting and unlike anything you've experienced before. Assuming our beloved TerraGoats can pull it off, we will be hosting a Bowl Game for the first time ever for you to attend. And of course, what would a school year be without visiting professors wandering around campus sharing their stories of the real, and unreal, world.

All this is just a mere taste of what we have planned for your time here at UFAN. As we finalize our plans we'll be sharing more information with you in this space.
