Traditions and Events
Mount Union prides itself on its rich history and traditions, and programming is no exception. RPB plans and implements, sometimes in conjunction with other offices on campus, several traditions events throughout the year.
Week of Welcome- August 19-23, 2019
Week of Welcome gives students a full week of engaging social events upon arrival on the campus in the Fall. Whether it is Raiderfest, where you can meet and learn about student organizations, a Blockbuster movie on campus, a concert, or Tacos & Tie-Dye, students can come out, get free stuff, eat great food, meet new people and get off to a great start for the year!
Homecoming Week- October 15-19, 2019
An entire fun-filled week of events is planned to lead up to the Mount Union Homecoming Football game and festivities on Saturday, October 19. In the past, Homecoming Week has included such fun programs as a bonfire, parade, hot chocolate delivered via gold car, and of course, Mr. UMU!
Family Day- Saturday, September 21, 2019
Family Day provides students and their families a time to reconnect during the semester. A full day of events is planned, so check the Family Day website (mountunion.edu/familyday) for the schedule. Registration for Family Day begins August 5.
