January 24: Back to the '80s Dance Party

The Studio by Jamie Kinkeade,  8–6 p.m.

The '20s might be back, but plenty of people are still living for the '80s. Don your neon for a throwback dance party at The Studio by Jamie Kinkeade.

New call-to-action

January 25: Jack Frost 5k

O'Reilly Catholic Student Center, 8–10 a.m.

For some runners, nothing beats a jog outside when the weather is frosty cold. Hit the road at the Jack Frost 5k. I'll be sticking to the treadmill for the time being.
