What is Friday Social Group?

Friday Social Group is a fun and relaxed gathering!

TU students and Hussman Center participants get together and have a good time playing games, doing theme-based activities, or just hanging out and getting to know each other.

We offer a bi-weekly Social Group on Fridays during the fall and spring semesters.Social Groups are announced via email, and participants register to attend using Eventbrite.

*You must be 18 or older to participate in Social Groups*

When does Friday Social Group meet? 

Social group takes place at the Hussman Center and will occur from 5:30-7:30pm this Fall. Social Groups will be offered in-person in a limited capacity to start. We plan to expand the capacity as the semester progresses.

How to sign up and pay for Friday Social Group?

You need to be on our social group email list to receive social group announcements. If you’re not already on the email list, please sign up here: https://form.jotform.com/iwb/hcaa-email-list-form

Social Group email announcements are sent by 5:00pm on Fridays, a week prior to when a social group is scheduled.

After signing up, by the following Monday you will receive either a confirmation email or a waitlist email. People on waitlist will be offered a spot for that week's group if someone cancels or the first opportunity to attend the next social group.

Payments for confirmed participants only are due by Wednesday afternoons at 4:00pm, and will be made online. If you have not paid by Wednesday at 4:00pm, your spot may be given to someone on the Social Group waitlist for that week.

How do I get Friday Social Group email announcements?

If you don't already receive social group emails, please email us at and request to be added to the distribution list, or sign up to receive the emails here : https://form.jotform.com/iwb/hcaa-email-list-form

What if Friday Social Group is full when I try to sign-up?  

If the list is full when you go to sign-up, put yourself on the waitlist and we will try to get you into the group that same week or the next Social Group week. 

What can I expect will be the same?

As Social Groups return to in-person opportunities, you can expect that we will continue to offer a fun and relaxed gathering space for a variety of activities. There will continue to be TU students who participate in Social Groups, and there will be food and drink available. We ask that you pay online.

What can I expect will be different?

  • The food and drink will all be pre-packaged and individualized servings.
  • The price of Social group is now $8 per person.
