Every Year at Kickoff
Every year, Kickoff begins with the Student Involvement Fair. The Cuddy Quad is filled
with booths sponsored by UAA student clubs and organizations, departments and community
businesses. Booths will be giving out information, swag, and even prizes! The fair
features live music, roving acts, and food trucks! Be sure to take time to sit and
eat some great food from local food trucks and enjoy the music!
The night continues with a comedy show (which brings in some of the best names in
comedy) and is followed by a free student BBQ and dance. The festivities end with
College Night at Fred Meyer which includes great prizes, amazing student discounts,
and fun competitions!
Come be a part of one of the biggest UAA student traditions on-campus!
Kickoff usually falls on the Saturday before classes start for the fall semester at
UAA. It is usually centralized around the Cuddy Quad area. This is located in the
heart of west campus, adjacent to the Wendy Williamson Auditorium and Rasmuson Hall.
Please see the UAA map for details.
Kickoff is open to all UAA students, staff, faculty, friends and family. Shuttles
to and from the Gorsuch Commons and Rasmuson Hall take students from residence halls
to kickoff and to College Night at Fred Meyer.
Registration is not needed for attendees (student and public organizations are required
to register to participate in the student involvement fair).
