Make the Most of Your 3-Day Weekend

Welcome back to another exciting year at UVM, packed to the brim with events in all shapes and colors! Here at BORED, we Sun setting over mountainsknow better than anyone just how overwhelming these first few weeks of school can be, which is why we’ve picked out some of our favorite upcoming events to help you get the most out of this fabulously long 3-day weekend. Whether you’re into dancing all night or kicking back and relaxing, there is sure to be something that will float your boat going on!



Dance the night away on Friday at the Back 2 School Bash (and Pre-Party!)

You might’ve heard about the blowout concert happening on Friday night in the Davis Center, which is bringing The Knocks all the way from New York right here to UVM “for one night, and one night only”! But don’t forget to make it there early enough for the pre-party too, which is kicking things off (for FREE!) at 7:30 with all sorts of camp-themed activities–everything from Moonrise Kingdom to friendship bracelets, a photobooth, and more!

Get to know Vermont on Saturday with an Outing Club Hike!

This is a wonderful time of year to get out there and explore everything that Vermont’s natural landscape has to offer, and it is far too often that we miss out on these couple weeks of warmth and sunshine while we are transitioning back into the craziness of the school year. But this time, sign up with the OC and go on a hike to get your blood moving!

Chill out on the beach and eat free food on Sunday!

After a long weekend of dancing and hiking, nothing sounds better to me than a relaxing day on North Beach with old friends and new, enjoying the last of the summer sunshine and free BBQ thanks to UPB. Plus, they’ll shuttle you there and back for free too! Since it’s a long weekend, I know you can put that homework off for one more day…right?

Take in the lake on Sunday night with a cruise!

A Lake Champlain sunset is unforgettable this time of year, and although it’s lovely from the fire escape, it is absolutely gorgeous when seen from the deck of a boat cruising Lake Champlain on a languid summer night. Why not take the opportunity? You’ll be wishing you did when we’re bundling up and there’s snow on the horizon in a few weeks!

Let loose and laugh on Monday night at the Labor Day Comedy Show before we’re back to school!

Last but CERTAINLY not least is the much anticipated Labor Day Comedy Show–a must see for new UVM-ers and older students alike! If you’ve spent the day doing homework to get ready for the week ahead, you more than deserve the chance to chill out and laugh the night away. Get your tickets in the bookstore before they sell out!
