Apartment traditions

Welcome Back Weekend

Every year during Welcome Back Weekend, the Apartments Staff and student governments host events to welcome new and returning students to the University and the Apartments Community. 

Family Weekend Duck Hunt

On Family Weekend, Residential Life staff hide thousands of rubber ducks around the community in the early morning hours for residents and their families to find throughout the next day. Participants can turn in their rubber ducks for prizes. Most prizes are candy, but there are larger prize baskets! The ducks disappear quickly, so happy hunting!

Groundhog Eve

Every year, around Groundhog's Day, the Apartments Community hosts its own Groundhog Day celebration with inside games, food and fun. Residents make predictions on whether Cornelius (the Apartments groundhog mascot) will see his shadow.

Apartments Carnival

A large-scale collaboration between the Apartments Community Hall Governments and the Apartments Community Staff to celebrate the end of the school year in April or early May! With inflatables, games, food, photo booths, a dunk tank, laser tag and more! This event is open to all residential students and our Binghamton University Community!
