The University of Toledo Office of Student Involvement and Leadership is hosting a UT Family Shopping Day at Costco this weekend.
All UT students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to shop at Costco, 3405 W. Central Ave., from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18. A UT social gathering with light refreshments will take place in the store from 10 a.m. to noon.
The Office of Student Involvement and Leadership seeks to build community and is committed to providing students with opportunities for involvement that will enhance and complement their UT experience.
Donovan Nichols, assistant dean for student involvement and leadership said, “We are always looking for inexpensive, outside-of-the-box programming for the UT family — students, faculty, staff and alumni.”
During this event, no Costco membership will be needed to enter as long as you have a UT ID or Costco-UT-Family-Day-Shopping-Pass-2016-w_Perrysburg.
This event is part of the University’s Family Weekend, Friday, Sept. 16, through Sunday, Sept 18. More information about Family Weekend can be found at utole.do/familyweekend.
“I heard that a shopping day for Family Weekend participants happened once in the past when Costco first opened, but no event like this one has occurred. This is the first time we are opening it up to the entire UT family, and the first time we are putting a social gathering in the store along with the shopping day,” Nichols said.
“Our UT family will be able to shop for great items at low costs, purchase nice UT apparel, and enjoy a fun UT-spirited reception,” Nichols said. “In addition, students will be able to drop off their resumé to potentially gain employment with a high-quality company. It’s a win for everyone.”
