Vernon@Night Fall 2015

Vernon Social, since opening after its $4.2 million renovation in the fall of 2014, has been a great success and a key focal point for student life on campus. During the week days/nights, Vernon Social is used as a study and social space for students but, starting Thursday nights with Pub Trivia at 8P​M, Vernon Social becomes alive with activity!

Vernon@Night! is a late night programming series, in addition to Trivia Thursdays, that occurs every Friday and Saturday night between the hours of 9PM-2AM. This series provides the campus with an alternative programming calendar that generally consists of a more involved/active program on Friday nights (novelty items, caricaturists, game shows) and a more passive but entertaining option on Saturday nights (comedians, bands, concerts).

Below is the calendar of events for Vernon@Night! for the Fall 2015 semester:
