February 25 – March 8
Join us on Facebook

Held during O Week and the first week of semester, SummerFest is a fantastic way to make new connections and have some fun while learning about the variety of services and opportunities available to you through UMSU.

There’ll be art, live music, workshops, speed-friending, parties and enough free food to feed a small army of hungry students. You’ll get the chance to seek and find your people, whether it’s through UMSU’s student departments, clubs and societies, or through one of the many social events on offer.
