While the holiday season is kicking into full swing, one campus event is featuring a slightly more deadly night filled with surprises.
This Friday, set the studying aside to attend the University Program Board’s Murder Mystery Dinner.
The event will be held in the Prairie Room of the Bone Student Center from 6-9 p.m.
This is the fourth time UPB will host the lively night of mystery.
“UPB thought it would be great to have an event that could relieve stress right before finals. This program is so successful every year that it really is a no-brainer,” Archie Messersmith, UPB adviser, said.
Students can sign up for the event individually or in teams up to eight members.
As dinner is served, the room will witness a crime being committed.
The question is “who done it,” and the audience is left to help solve the mystery.
“It’s like you’re watching a live game of Clue. Professional actors are brought in, and students can participate as long as they want to,” Messersmith said.
Students can partake in the event even further by dressing up.
“People have dressed up each year, with monocles or little hats, but students can also roll up in sweatpants. It’s up to the students,” Messersmitch said.
The event is free and open to the student body.
Dinner will be served, and there is a vegetarian option available.
To sign up, students can visit or call the UPB office on the first floor of the Bone Student Center.
You can sign up with a group of friends, or join a group individually.
Students can join a team the night of the event, without signing up ahead of time, but keep in mind that space is limited.
“This is the final program of the semester for UPB. We really hope that students can come out and get their minds off their exams, get a plated dinner and enjoy each other’s company,” Messersmitch said.
