The University of Iowa


Movie Night!

Are you an avid movie watcher, or just enjoy seeing a movie now and then? Well, gather your friends, relax, laugh, and check out the Iowa Theater in the IMU, where we will be showcasing the movie "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard," an action-comedy starring Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Salma Hayek. 

Table Top Games

Play classic games Like Monopoly, Life, Scrabble, and Risk. Also, try your chance at newer mega-hits like Ticket to Ride, Catan, King of Tokyo, Codenames, and Ultimate Werewolf. No experience needed – bring your love and interest for games.

Trivia Night

Take the first test of your college career… but we promise this test will be fun. Quiz the night away with questions provided by various student organizations. Test your knowledge by yourself or bring your hall mates!

Games at Hubbard Park

Join in the fun by playing and learning lawn games including spikeball, jarts, and corn hole. We might even channel our inner child with an old fashion game of tag. You are more than welcome to just lounge on the lawn and meet other new students. 

Pottery Painting

Join us for a painting pARTy! Pick up pottery, brushes and paint at the IMU Welcome Desk (limited quantities so please hurry!). Paint it black and gold and bring it to Renees Pottery, 940 S Gilbert Ct, Iowa City, IA 52240 to be fired and glazed!

Kinnick After Party

Continue the party after Kickoff at Kinnick while enjoying free food from area food trucks, prizes including drawings for a free scooter and Echo Shows. It’s here, the Hawkeye party we’ve waited for hosted by DJ Blake Horstmann, from The Bachelorette & Bachelor in Paradise! Make sure to stick around and see if DJ Blake will give you a rose!
