College students welcomed back with free food, music

Auburn Hills
College students welcomed back with free food, music

The City of Auburn Hills is welcoming back all college students who attend the five colleges and universities based in Auburn Hills with a celebration on Sept. 17. College Fest will feature free food and live music from 3 to 8 p.m. at Riverside Park, near the corner of Squirrel and Auburn Roads in downtown Auburn Hills.
“College Fest gives us the opportunity to show our appreciation for the hard-working students that make up our college community — Baker College, Central Michigan University–Auburn Hills Center, Thomas M. Cooley Law School, Oakland Community College and Oakland University,” said Stephanie Carroll, Auburn Hills coordinator of community relations and legislative affairs.
The outdoor event will feature the retro musical talents of That 80’s Band, as well as free food from Stan’s Bar and Grill and The Post Bar. Beverages will be provided by Pepsi. Students who attend college in Auburn Hills will be required to show their student ID before entering the party. No alcohol is allowed. Signs designating parking areas will be posted near the park on the day of the event.  In addition, Oakland University’s “Bear Bus” will be located on the OU campus in the parking circle between Hamlin and Vandenberg Halls to shuttle OU students to and from the event.
“This event aims to bring our extensive college community together as we welcome them back to school and show them the amenities that our nearby downtown has to offer, including shopping, restaurants, cafes/coffee shops, the farmer’s market and free wireless,” Carroll concludes.
