Welcome to Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities at UMC is a happening place! We have activities ranging from traditional all-campus events such as Homecoming to Ag-Arama. The program board that plans all of these events is known as Golden Eagle Entertainment (GEE) We also sponsor W.O.W. (What's On Wednesday) events held many Wednesday nights throughout the semester. A wide range of events are held ranging from hypnotists to open mic nights, College Bowl, Comedians and the traditional Mr. UMC competition and Faculty/Staff vs. Student Showdown!
