Paint the Bridge

The annual Paint the Bridge event occurs in early fall semester. Paint the Bridge is an excellent way to promote your student group and give your group presence on the bridge to thousands of students throughout the year. For more information, please check Guidelines and Policies for Paint the Bridge.

Activities Fairs

The Activities Fairs take place at the start of fall in September and again at the start of spring.
