When they’re not in the air or the lab, you can find our students kicking back in the gaming lounge at the Mori Hosseini Student Union, checking out a group fitness class at the new Fitness Complex, grabbing a bite to eat at the In Flight Late Night Café or meeting friends at one our many, and exciting campus events.

“I would definitely say campus is known for a lot of outdoor activities like beach hangouts, sand volleyball, bonfires and cookouts,” said Jodie Harmon (’21), an Aviation Business Administration major.

Each November, Embry-Riddle students, staff, faculty and alumni celebrate Homecoming with a weekend chock-full of activities and events including a Homecoming block party, a Farmers Market on the Student Union Lawn, a food truck festival and the ultimate Homecoming Concert with fireworks.

However, you don’t need to wait until the fall for fun. Each semester, students can participate in various events supporting student organizations or regularly scheduled events by Touch-N-Go Productions. Whether it’s trying your luck at Casino Night, enjoying Thursday Night Movies on the Quad lawn, thinking outside the box in escape rooms or being on the edge of your seat at The Comedy Magic Stunt Show Spectacular – there’s always something to do!

"Attending campus events is a fantastic way to meet new people and have some fun in between Embry-Riddle's rigorous course load,” said Bradley Zweir (’23), who serves as the Chairperson of Touch-N-Go Productions and is currently earning his B.S. in Spaceflight Operations. “Most events on campus are free, and with such a great variety, there's something for everyone to enjoy!"

One of our favorite annual traditions? Blue & Gold Week of course! Every March, students, faculty and staff gather for a full week of events and activities to celebrate the spirit and pride of Embry-Riddle. The festivities begin with a carnival and continue throughout the week with games, contests, parties, live performances and so much more.
