UPC teamed up with Groove Boston to bring you “Club U”-the last of our Homecoming Week events. The Cage was transformed into a Night Club with a complete club atmosphere including lights, a dance floor, all of today’s hit music, and of course glow sticks.   This event ended up completely SELLING OUT! This was truly a proud moment for all members of UPC and everyone involved in planning this event.  The dance floor was packed for most of the night, and everyone clearly had a fun-filled night!

Thanks to EVERYONE that came out and danced all night with UPC and Groove Boston at Club U!!

U Just Do U Showcase November 3, 2008

Posted by in : Events , add a comment

UPC presented the U, Just Do You Showcase on October 16, 2008 as the second event of Homecoming Week. At this event UMass RSOs showed off their skills for the chance to win a $1,000 donation to the charity of their choice. Prizes were given out to the audience in between acts. Dave from MTV’s Real World Hollywood came as a guest host and DJ Nexus from Virtual Vibes was also there providing music throughout the entire event. The audience was very supportive of all of the acts and seemed to enjoy watching the hidden talents of UMass’ RSOs.

Congratulations to The Dynamics on winning the $1,000 donation for their chosen charity!

And thank you to those in attendance of the event!
