Visit With University Libraries and Pat Walker Health Center’s Medical Services at Carnival Today

The Division of Finance and Administration invites university employees to attend the Making Your Day Work Carnival. This unique event serves not only to showcase the various departments across campus who work to enhance the overall employee experience, but also to raise awareness among employees regarding the diverse and exceptional services offered by the university that may be overlooked in the hustle of daily routines. 

This event offers an opportunity for staff and faculty to connect face-to-face with units they may have previously interacted with only virtually or over the phone. It will feature a “Family Feud” style game show with Chancellor Robinson — winners will receive lunch for their department. Attendees can visit the registration table upon arriving to collect a wristband and tickets to receive items at each booth. Snacks and small bites will be provided.
