Big Night University invites you to join the Class of 2019 for the college party of the year.

Leave the studying at home and celebrate with your friends and classmates at the JCC’s 13th annual Big Night fundraising

Expect music from a DJ, a band, dancing, games and libations. Come hungry because this college mixer will have
food better than the average dining hall! Big Night University’s campus, the JCC, is the “Quad” of our community. Our party-with-a-purpose “is your chance to ace your service requirement and get some GPA bonus points.

Big Night is the JCC’s biggest fundraising event, providing support for scholarships and programs that enable individuals of all backgrounds, abilities, religious affiliations and financial need to participate in the JCC’s quality programs and services.
Your Big Night U community service can be corporate or individual sponsorships, and we will be giving huge shout-outs to all who participate.

So send us your acceptance and get ready to party.

See you on campus March 2, 2019!
