Science Students and Faculty/Staff Fall Picnic

Each spring we have a picnic for all of the science students and faculty/staff in the Neils Science Center at Kirchoff Park. As can be seen from the map, the park is a short 15 minute walk from the campus. From Neils Science Center, walk to Laporte, take a left, walk to Roosevelt, take a right, and follow Roosevelt until you get to the park. Look for the VU group at one of the pavilions.

There will be: 

  • Good food
  • Games: volleyball, kickball, basketball, Frisbee, or whatever else you bring
  • Plenty of conversation with students, faculty and staff and their families
Encourage everyone to attend! It's a great way to end the semester!
