Trippy Murder Mystery

Tuesday, October 10 | 4:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. | Selby Auditorium 

Come out and enjoy dinner at a 1960's themed WHO-DUN-IT murder mystery party! Hey there, cool cats and groovy gals! Get ready to time-travel back to the swinging 60s at our Homecoming Murder Mystery event. We've got some wild news to share – that far-out rock star from the 60s just took a cosmic ride on a blown-up bus! Don't let that harsh your mellow, though. Before you tune into your higher consciousness, let's vibe together and hash things out and see if we can figure out who did it! The fuzz might roll in, but we're all about peace, love, and harmony, man. So, let's hang loose, groove to some sick tunes, solve a mystery, and keep the good vibes flowing. Far out, right? See you at the event, peace out, baby! Food will be provided and includes cheese and chocolate fondue fountains. Prizes for the winners!
