Dark Carnival:

Dark Carnival is an annual event held by LURDA (Lindenwood University Resident Director Association) to commemorate the pagan tradition of Halloween and old traditions from St. Charles, everything with a modern twist. The event consists of a Haunted House and Haunted Hayride that could scare even the bravest; many booths to entertain visitors that vary from face painting, to costumes, to traditional desserts; a costume contest with a dance ball held in the Pavilion, and much more.

Christmas Walk:

Each year, Lindenwood University hosts its annual free Christmas Walk. The event will feature activities for all ages, including decorated buildings, refreshments, music, and an appearance by Santa Claus and his reindeer.  All members of the community are encouraged to come out and enjoy the beauty of the campus and participate in these age-old holiday traditions.

Finals Week:

Because Finals Week is a very stressful time for Lindenwood students, we offer opportunities for students to take a break from studying and also extend facility hour to accommodate students’ busy schedules.  Finals Breakout and Midnight Breakfast allow students to get late night snacks on campus during peak studying hours.  In addition, the library and computer labs offer extended hours for students’ studying needs.

Sibley Day:

Sibley Day is a celebration of the University’s unique educational experiences and founder Mary Sibley. Students can choose from dozens of presentations and hands-on experiences throughout the day.

Spring Fling Week:

Spring Fling Week gives students a chance to unwind before the last stretch of the spring semester.  Past activities have included organization fairs, movie nights, comedians, concerts, and much more.

Evans Unlocked:

Evans Unlocked provides students a night to cut loose and have fun before finals.  Evans Commons remains open late and is jam packed with fun activities including inflatables, performers, novelty items, free food, prizes, and much more!
