Annual Events and Activities
Student Affairs is involved in many traditional events and activities that take place on an annual basis. Whether it is through direct leadership to departmental events or advising student organizations or even providing support to university events, Student Affairs works very hard to enrich the lives of our students.
Although it would be impossible to list all of the special events throughout the year that we're involved in, below you will find information about what we call traditional or yearly events that take place at the University of New Orleans.
A festival that enables freshmen and other students to become acquainted with UNO. Held on the Wednesday during the first week of school each year, FreshFest features music, food, and fun, as well as campus and community resources. Vendors at FreshFest include the UNO Credit Union, companies and campus departments looking to hire part-time employers, and all the student organizations.
Taking place all across campus during the first six weeks of classes, Privateer Plunge offers new students “an array of funfilled and educational opportunities to help you understand the resources available to you and to meet other UNO students, faculty and administrators.” Students who participate are eligible to win prizes!
