First Unity Fest Celebrates Old Dominion Diversity on April 21

Old Dominion University will recognize its tradition of diversity and inclusion on campus with the first Unity Fest on Thursday, April 21 from noon to 2 p.m. on Kaufman Mall.

Sponsored by Old Dominion's Office of Intercultural Relations in collaboration with student organizations, Unity Fest will bring together student groups and the student body to celebrate Monarch culture.

Interactive unity stations will allow students to engage with others from different organizations to cultivate interconnectedness.

Contributing students will spell out the word "unity" for an aerial photograph, solidifying Old Dominion's commitment to diversity and inclusivity on campus.

Unity Fest will feature the official unveiling of the Unity Wall Banner. The banner will showcase participating student organization names and logos on the wall as a symbol of committed unity. The Unity Wall Banner is directed by the Interfraternity Council.

Appearances by the Dynasty Dance Team and Big Blue also will help demonstrate University pride.

During lunch, students will be able to take part in interactive inflatable stations including Giant Twister, Giant Corn Hole and Hippo Chow Down. In addition, Bubble Soccer will be organized and run by ODU's Department of Recreation and Wellness.
