Every semester, the Ball State Late Nite committee creates designated themes for Saturday night entertainment on campus.
This spring, students can expect to see a few repeating themes, such as “Late Nite Carnival,” as well as new themes to experience.
Currently, the Late Nite committee has finished planning the first four events of the semester. While the other themes have been announced, the Late Nite committee has not yet scheduled the exact activities that will be available for students during these nights.
Below is more information about the first four Late Nites and a list of all other themes.
Jan. 12 — “When You Wish Upon a Late Nite”
For the first Late Nite after winter break, the committee created a theme that revolves around Disney. Students will be able to see some of their favorite films within the decoration. Students can also take part in a “Toy Story” themed escape room, where the mission will be to think like a toy and escape Sid’s bedroom. Additionally, there will be multiple games of laser tag going on within the UFO shaped field. “When You Wish Upon a Late Nite” will help students bring their Disney dreams to life.
Jan. 19 — “Late Nite Saves the Day”
For those who can feel their “Late Nite senses tingling,” this superhero themed Late Nite is the place to go for all things super. The theatre department will be offering face painting, and there will be a showing of the movie, “Venom.” Additionally, students can get active by participating in archery tag and obstacle courses, where students will have the chance to win a coffee maker that looks like Iron Man. Alongside all of the activity, students can also indulge in a nacho bar.
