The event will feature Laser Tag, Jousting, an Obstacle Course, a bounce house, photobooth, and yard games including bag toss, ladder ball and spike ball.  We will also have a beer garden (including hard cider) for attendees over 21.  All graduate students, friends and family are invited.

Getting to the Event: We are pleased to announce a special shuttle that will be running during the duration of the event, stopping at Warren college (Single Graduate Housing), Expedition Way/North Torrey Pines (Coast), and the event.  See below for a map of the shuttle routes.  We encourage Rita residents to use the Mesa shuttle to get to the event.
