Upcoming Events

There are no events available at this time.

When seeking co-sponsorship with Late Nite, there are a few options:
  • Students or groups are able to co-sponsor by providing labor hours with the group being divided among several Late Nite tasks such as registration, games, food, etc.
  • Students or groups are able to create their own activity/area and work that space as a group. This allows for some creative freedom as a student group. (Example: the International Center is interested in cosponsoring an international game at Around the World Late Nite).

If you are interested in co-sponsoring with Late Nite, please e-mail

For volunteer or co-sponsorship information, please e-mail or call the Office of Student Center Programs at 765-285-1031. We would be happy to answer any questions.
