You Are Invited to Festivus 2013: Candy Land

Are you as pumped for the biggest dance of the fall semester as we are?! Festivus, which is derived from an episode of Seinfeld, has come to be celebrated as a secular holiday. Essentially, it is Conn’s biggest holiday party. Festivus is brought to us by a wide of array of organizations on campus, primarily the Office of Residential Affairs. It is important to note that Festivus is more than just the dance in the 1962 room: there are activities all over Cro! Most importantly, this year’s theme is Candy Land! Here is a break-down of all the events– starting during the DAY– and a little bit about the people who brought them to you!

1. Holiday fun in the Game Room: 2-4pm

The Lambdin Game Room staff brings you this portion of Festivus! They will be giving away FREE Holiday SWAG to attendees, including mugs, school supplies, and lots and lots of candy! 

2. Holiday Dinner in Harris: 5-8pm

Harris Dining Hall will transform into a holiday wonderland with special décor for the occasion. The dinner provided during the night will also depict the holiday spirit.

3. Area Parties: 8-9pm

This portion of Festivus is brought to you by the office of Residential Education and Living, more specifically your House Fellows and Floor Governors!
