Events happening on Daytona Beach and Prescott campuses

Living on campus allows you to make connections that will last a lifetime. Catch a sporting event and support Eagle Athletics, hang out at residence hall events or grab a bite at any one of our delicious dining facilities.

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 or hanging out with friends at the In Flight Late Night Café.

“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.

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.

Having seen the All American Rejects in 2018 and AJR in 2019, Harmon is a big fan of the annual concerts put on by Touch-N-Go Productions.

“They always put a lot of effort into the production, and if you show your ID, you can get very close to the artist!” she said.

Work hard and play hard at the Prescott Campus

Our Arizona Campus is known for all kinds of unique annual traditions. From air shows and races to outdoor barbecues and Hawaiian luaus, Eagles know how to have fun! OctoberWest, our homecoming weekend, is also an event you won’t want to miss.

“I love seeing all the planes and meeting Embry-Riddle alumni at the annual air show,” said Aerospace Engineering major William Baca III (’23).

For Baca, anything hosted by the Student Government Association and Board of Campus Activities is a must. One of his favorites in particular has been the roaring 20s-themed casino night.

“My friends and I were the best dressed ones who attended that event,” he said.

Wondering where to hang out? Some of our students’ favorite spots on campus include the Scholars Café, the Jack R. Hunt Student Union and Amphitheater, the remote control airfield and of course – the flight line.

“I have met so many new faces and friends over the past two years attending these campus events,” Baca said.
