Friday Social Group

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 SignUp Genius.

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

When does Friday Social Group meet?

Friday Social Groups only occur during Fall & Spring Semesters.

Social group takes place at the Hussman Center and will occur from 5:30-7:30 p.m. this Spring. See the Social Group Schedule (PDF).

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 for emails.

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

The first 50 people who enter their name on the sign up are automatically accepted into the group and are expected to complete the $8 payment online by Wednesday afternoons at 4 p.m. In addition to the payment a Social group visitor form is required to be completed. You should receive an automatic email from Sign-Up genius reminding you to complete the payment and visitor form process. If your ability to attend changes, please contact us at so that we can make room for another individual. 

If you have not paid by Wednesday at 4 p.m., your spot may be given to someone on the Social Group waitlist for that week.

If you are new to the Hussman Center social groups, or have not attended since 2021, please contact Brittany at for a social group intake meeting prior to attending the group.  

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.

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

If the list is full when you go to sign-up, please contact Brittany at to put yourself on the waitlist and we will try to get you into the group that same week, if someone cancels.

What can I expect will be the same at Friday Social Group?

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 water available. We ask that you pay online.
