Soak Up Summer in Campustown

August is here which means we are in the final weeks of true summertime in Champaign. Take advantage of the days before all of the students return by taking a trip over to Campus Town to enjoy some of the events and businesses that aren’t easily available once school is in session. From the final weeks of Movies on Quad to all the delicious noms, check out all of the cool stuff in campus now without feeling the pressure of having to don orange and blue to fit in.

You still have time to catch this summer’s biggest blockbusters while lounging on the beautiful UIUC Main Quad. Every Thursday at 9 pm, grab a group of friends, a blanket and catch some of the year’s biggest flicks for FREE!
