A Fun Night at McPhee

By Rachel Clepper

McPhee Fun Night is celebrated every fall at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire hosted by the UW-Eau Claire Recreation to promote student involvement at McPhee Center. The event on Oct. 17 consisted of a Wellness and Sports Clubs Fair, pizza tasting and a variety of activities such as Zumba classes, rock-climbing and log rolling. The night even included a chance to win a variety of prizes if you attended each event.
