There is Usually Something to Get Into

Here at WashU, students tend to learn very quickly that there is always something happening on campus. Also, the good news is, most of the time these things are free for WashU Students. One of the best known of these is WILD, which happens at the end of every semester and the university has a musician that the students vote for to come and give a private concert to WashU students. There are free also food and drinks provided at WILD. Some other smaller events happen at the DUC weekly for WashU students like free tea and popcorn. One of the ways to stay up to date on-campus events is by checking theses websites that post campus event often.
