A house full of 44 fun men and women means there are a lot of impromptu events such as roasting smores, playing cards, or going to the Ave to get some bubble tea or froyo. However, our Social Chairs plan some awesome events for us each quarter.
The house participates in several intramural sports each quarter. The consist of both co-ed and gender specific teams. The most popular teams are the men's football team and the co-ed ultimate frisbee team. Other teams include soccer, volleyball, swimming, and basketball.
At the start of fall quarter there is a retreat that takes place at Lakeside Bible camp on Whidbey Island. It is a great way to get to know your new housemates or get reacquainted with friends that you missed during the summer.
One of the most fun events of the year. The Halloween Dance consists of a night full of the best music, decorations, dancing, desserts, and costume contest.
Alli cooks us holiday themed meals several times throughout the year including a full turkey dinner at Thanksgiving and a Christmas dinner the first week of December. There are St. Patricks day and Easter themed meals as well. Also, every once in a while the women have tea parties in place of dinner.
Hosted in one of the UCU members house consisting of a delicious dinner, desserts, games, and a very fun white elephant gift exchange.
Pixie Week occurs once a quarter and is exclusively for the women. They dress up every night for different themes and give gifts anonymously each day to their pixie! The end of the week is always the funnest and a sleepover at one of the girl's houses or a girls night in the basement.
Week of Man
This week is for Men participation only, althought the women do get to watch some of the events like Mr. UCU, the rootbeer mile, and Fight Night. The men unite around their manliness and take part in an epic quest to outdo each other in feats of personal style, strength, and hygiene (or lack thereof). Friday night the winner is announced and they get bragging rights and their name engraved on the house sword.
During Winter quarter, the student Vice Presidents host Java Night. This event is a talent show that is open to community participation. Ranging from musical performances to other various creative acts, this night not only provides entertainment and fun for everyone, but also is a great way to show people what UCU is about.
An event where the women take the men out for a fun evening during Winter Quarter. This event can be any kind of activity ranging from bowling to an interactive Murder Mystery dinner.
Week of Woman
This week is for Women participation only. There is a lot of dressing up and ridiculous nightly activities. Just like the men, a winner is announced at the end of the week. The winner gets bragging rights as well as their name engraved on the plaque.
An event where the men take the women out for a fun evening during Spring Quarter. This event can be any kind of activity ranging from roller blading to an outing on an Argosy cruise liner.
The house takes a final retreat over Memorial Day Weekend where UCU'ers get away for a weekend and enjoy the upcoming summer. For the past several years we have traveled to Lake Chelan for a relaxing and sun-filled weekend. We camp in tents, play in the lake during the day, roast hotdogs and smore's, and sing campfire songs at night.
