Late Night

The Late Night series of events is hosted by student organizations, university departments, and the Late Night advisor. Events take place on a Friday or Saturday night typically from 10pm-1am in/around the Cohon University Center (CUC). They aim to offer free, fun activities for all undergraduate and graduate students.

Students, organizations and departments interested in hosting Late Night events can submit applications via the Late Night Bridge page for the Fall 2018 semester starting April 2nd. Applications will be due by April 30th. Approved applications will receive additional advising support, event support and $500 budget.

Requirements for Late Night events are listed on the Late Night Bridge page, as well as expectations for groups once Special consideration is given to creative and new events, as well as events that have the potential to appeal to a large, diverse group of CMU community members.

Interested students, organizations and departments who are interested in applying can email the Late Night advisor to set up a time to meet and discuss questions or ideas they may have about their event.
