Every year different student organizations and student engagement focused departments pool together on the South Oval of campus to showcase the various options across our university that are available to students based on their interests. We will be teaming up with our departmental partners from the Tom Love Center for Entrepreneurship, Tom Love Innovation Hub, and helping to showcase VR gaming with Beat Saber. Look for the big Innovation Hub trailer and come to grab a pamphlet, ask us any questions, and try your hand at some VR games! Yes this event is going on at the same time as our mini tourneys in the Union, but for those that don’t want anything to do with the tournaments they can stop by our table in the South Oval to talk to some of our leadership and veteran members about the org.
