Painting The Rock
Western New England University students have a lot of creative opportunities when it comes to marketing events. Painting The Rock on campus has become a right of passage to many! Each week, you'll see the colors change and a new event publicized. Each Spring, all students have a chance to "leave their mark" on The Rock.
Spring Event promises to be a great experience. Each year, Student Senate brings a national artist to perform a show, just for Western New England University students. Andy Grammer, Fabolous, Gabriel Iglesias, Goo Goo Dolls, Lewis Black, Mat Kearney, Sean Kingston, Third Eye Blind, and most recently Dan + Shay with special guests Brothers Osborne and Sister C.
Usually held within the first few weeks of the fall semester, WNEpalooza is one of the first big events to occur on campus. WNEpalooza is hosted by Campus Activities Board (CAB). WNEpalooza is an event featuring live music, food, and activities. This year, CAB provided entertainment through the musical guest and American Idol winner Kris Allen, tie-dye, inflatable activities and dinner on the lawn. In recent years, WNEPalooza has hosted musical performances by Reel Big Fish, Erin Hutchinson, Ryan Cabrera, and We The Kings.
Homecoming occurs during the middle of the fall semester. Homecoming is an opportunity for students and alumni to show their pride for Western New England University. Homecoming weekend is three days full of events. There are many home sporting events and is also a chance to reconnect with old classmates and to see how the Western New England University campus has changed since your last visit.
