These features include a Blacklight Bash in the Great Hall of the Union, food vendors on South Road, a Live Mosaic Photo Wall Activity in the Art Gallery, video games, table tennis and Just Dance featured in the Union Underground, and the CUAB Student Organization Showcase & Trivia in the auditorium, among many other events and activities.
