WSU Block Party Attracts Thousands to Kick Off School Year
This year the event is titled “Wildcat Wipeout,” because students who visit the many booths can wipe out any questions they may have about the university, including academics, athletics, services and events.
In addition to the breakfast, for the first time this year, the block party will feature a “Taste of the Town.” For $5, attendees can sample a variety of dishes served by some of the area’s favorite restaurants. This portion of the event will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the plaza south of Building 4. Tickets may be purchased at the Shepherd Union information desk beginning Aug. 27. Tickets are limited and will be first come, first served.
“The block party is a chance to calm some back-to-school jitters,” said Nikki Nicholas, Wildcat Block Party chair. “This is an opportunity for current students, or anyone interested, to connect in a relaxed, enjoyable environment and begin the year on a high note.”
The booths, food and fun will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public with the exception of Taste of the Town, which costs $5. For more information, visit weber.edu/blockparty.
