University Career Center hosts the Plaza Party

Join us at the Belk Plaza as it transforms into a bustling, exciting outdoor event filled with games, prizes, and food. This is a free event the Career Center hosts to kick off the new academic year, and we want to thank Allstate for sponsoring the event!

ATG Entertainment will DJ the event, while students play games including the Frog Launcher, Milk Can Toss, and Life Size Connect Four, or compete in games like Potato Sack Races, Tug-O-War, Water Balloon Toss, and Egg Relay, plus so many other games. In between games, students can grab a snow cone, funnel cake, and pop-corn, or buy some lunch and hang out in the Belk Plaza.

The Career Center emphasizes fun and connection through the Plaza Party. In the midst of the event’s fun and games, students can connect with employers and campus partners in an informal way. Up to fifteen employer sponsors, including Allstate, Honeywell, Booster, ALKU, Best Impressions Caterers, Tata Consultancy Services, Collabera, Barista Craft, Northwestern Mutual, Pyramid Hotel Group, Maggiano's, Uptown Cheapskate, Harbor Inn Seafood, Visit Lake Norman, and Crab Du Jour will be on hand to join in on the fun, and talk with students about job opportunities and provide recruiting tips.

This event provides a lot of information to the students who have joined the Niner community about the services offered by career center in campus and creates a bridge to connect with company executives and possible internship/full-time opportunities.
