Pack the Pavilion for Family Day

#PackThePav Family Day 2018 welcomes students, staff, families and guests to campus for UIC fun and fandom Sunday.

The event will celebrate family and the culmination of the men’s basketball season at the UIC Pavilion, 525 S. Racine Ave.

At the event, people can “learn more about UIC, experience the UIC culture,” said Marcus Betts, visiting senior director of community and corporate relations. “We’ve got a lot of really exciting things lined up.”

Activities like meet and greets with UIC mascot Sparky D. Dragon, temporary tattoos and more are set to begin at 4 p.m.

Two graduating players, Tai Odiase and Clint Robinson, will be honored before the Flames go head-to-head with the Wright State Raiders at 5 p.m.

A $1 hot dog offer and raffles for textbook vouchers and free pizza for a year from Bacci Pizzeria will take place, too. Some guests will also get free UIC gear. An on-court shoot around will take place after the game.

Admission for #PackThePav is free for UIC students with a valid i-card. Staff and guests can purchase tickets online. Use the promo code PACK for a special $5 price. Parking will also be available for $5 in Parking Lot 1B, 1139 W. Harrison St.
