Unity Block Party

"Reign" in the new semester at the Unity Block Party. Cultivate the Monarch Experience. Come enjoy food, activities and giveaways, and connect with 13 Monarch Neighborhoods!

Where: Kaufman Mall
When: Thursday, September 22, 5 - 7 p.m.


A university campus can feel like its own town, with each college, club, and department feeling like a neighborhood in its own right. Our Old Dominion University 'town' is ready to welcome our Monarchs back to the neighborhood by hosting a Unity Block Party on Kaufman Mall from 5 to 7 p.m. September 22nd to celebrate and bring together ODU's many unique and different neighborhoods. It will be a time for students, faculty, and staff, together with their families and friends, to socialize and enjoy music, performances, creative activities, and food.

Kaufman Mall will be transformed into 13 "neighborhoods," which will each host a celebration full of festivities, activities, and fellowship. Each neighborhood has embraced the spirit of what it means to be a member of a diverse and inclusive community and is eager for you to experience a memorable day. Also, as part of the President's Investiture Ceremony, The Unity Block Party will also include the Monarchs Give Back: Community Service Initiative. Each neighborhood will be collecting nonperishable for the Foodbank of Southeastern, VA. Please invite colleagues, students, family, and friends to join us in appreciating who we are and enjoy the experience of interacting with your neighbors listed below.
