Signature Events for Students

These traditional annual events have become Signature Events for the Student Association. There are many more events throughout the year (check the calendar to see what's going on). 

Saturday Night Live Shows

The Fall “Live” is a part of the Homecoming weekend and the Spring “Live” is a part of the Accepted Students Day with Admissions. These variety shows are full of music, comedy, videos, and unusual talents featuring Roberts students. Admission is free. 

Barn Party

Hosted by a beloved professor in his family barn, this annual event ushers in the Fall season with music, food, line dancing, pumpkin carving, contests, and a bonfire.  

Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! On the Monday after Thanksgiving, we light a candle, sing a song, and enjoy the beginning of the Christmas season. Families are welcome to join students, staff, and faculty in this traditional event! Hot cocoa and cookies are served inside Garlock after the ceremony.

Winter and Spring Formals

This bi-annual Formal Dinner and Dance event is a celebratory tradition - held at the end of each semester - at which students gather in semi-formal attire to break bread and enjoy an evening of music and dancing at a safe and comfortable off-campus venue.
