Life at Valpo
Your life here
Feels just like home
That is, if home has eight residence halls, seven fraternity and sorority houses, dining options and locations to fit every appetite and schedule. Valpo will keep you well fed, well rested, and surrounded by friends.
Housing and Dining
Students, faculty, and staff can learn from the very best with November’s Innovation Hub guest speakers: Daniel Maguire, Ph.D., Luke J. Venstrom ’07, Ph.D., and Katarina Nikolovski. Stop by for professional insight into landing your dream position, mastering the art of presenting, and unlocking a transformative approach to design thinking.
Looking for a way to make friends, get moving, and have fun? Got a good chicken wing throw? Does tennis take your troubles away? With Valpo’s club and intramural sports, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to suit up.
Christmas Tree Lighting and JuleFest
Join us on November 28 from 3-7 p.m. in the Harre Union to meet Santa, visit a photo booth, and snack on festive treats as we light up our Christmas tree, sing carols, and witness a stunning fireworks display (weather permitting). Then, attend our holiday hops JuleFest concert in the Chapel of the Resurrection at 7 p.m. for extra Christmas cheer. Both events are free and open to the public.
