Towson University’s Office of Student Activities wants to make it cool to stay at school this Labor Day weekend. The campus will host movies, sporting events, concerts, free food and much more as a part of the university’s annual “LaborStay” event.
It all begins Friday with “Towson Feet on the Street,” which gives students the opportunity to explore the Towson area and includes music, activities, prizes and food. Students can also catch a movie at “Screen on the Green,” where the film “Neighbors” will be shown on the PAWS Lawn.
On Saturday, students can relax at “Lei-borStay,” a luau starting at 4 p.m. at Potomac Patio. Students can indulge in food and Hawaiian-themed music and entertainment before Towson’s season-opening football game against Central Connecticut at Unitas Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.
Saturday will also feature the “Cultural Block Party,” held at the West Village Commons ballrooms. There will be a DJ and performances by the Towson University Greek community.
A couple of bus trips will allow students to see the sights and shop for school on Sunday. Students can take a round trip from campus to Washington, D.C., for just $10 for students ($20 for non-students) or sign up for a round trip to Arundel Mills Mall for $5 student tickets ($10 for non-students). Both bus trip tickets can be purchased at the University Union Ticket Office.
Sunday will also feature “Dessert Theatre with Brian O’Sullivan” held at PAWS, where students can enjoy freshly baked desserts and comedian/musician Brian O’Sullivan.
LaborStay Weekend will close out with a bang on Monday with the “Battle Royale: H20” water war, which starts at 2 p.m. on the PAWS Lawn and features free Rita’s Italian Ice.
