Traditons

University Program Board Traditions

The University Program Board plans around 40 events on campus per semester. A number of these events are ones that have been so popular that we have decided to make them a tradition! Check out some of our traditional programs below!

Traditional Programs

Friday Night Flicks

Friday Night Flicks occur every single Friday during the academic school year (with the exception of school breaks and holidays) at 7:00pm in the Student Government Association (SGA) Chambers.The movies that are shown are those that have already played in theaters but are not yet out on DVD. FREE snacks and refreshments are always provided and fun is encouraged!

Late Night Bingo

Late Night Bingo occurs on the first Friday every single month directly following Friday Night Flicks. Late Night Bingo is held at the Provincial House Dining Hall on South Campus at 10:00pm. Every Bingo Night has a different theme and between 15 and 20 prizes are awarded each night. Come on out and get your Bingo on!

Commuter Breaks

There isn’t a hidden meaning behind the title of this program! Commuter Breaks were designed specifically for students who commute to campus everyday. During each Commuter Break, UPB will give out FREE snacks and refreshments while students are on their way to or from class! Commuter Breaks occur at various times and locations throughout the semester so make sure to check the Commuter Break schedule below!

Tuesday, September 5th: The Millennium Student Center Quad @ 12:30pm

Wednesday, October 25th: Provincial House @ 9:00am

Tuesday, November 14th: The Millennium Student Center Bridge @ 5:00pm

Mirth Week

Mirth Week is UPB's most famous attraction. This program occurs during the Spring Semester and spans an entire week. The week is designed to promote campus cheer as well as reward UMSL's students for their hard work all year long. Several events take place during the week such as The Last Lecture, The Student Leadership Awards, The Mirthweek Carnival, and the Mirthweek Headliner.
