Athletics & Sports
Here are Zombie University we strive to provide a competitive edge when it comes to extracurricular activites. Football, Soccer, Golf, Basketball, and other sports are a major reason why some students will choose a particular school to attend over others. At ZU we recognize that. In fact, we recently revamped our sports complex, Manes Field, to accomodate virtually any sports need (aside from golf, we still have 422 acres of maintained land just for that). Manes Field has updated it’s layout and even added a working dome that will open when it’s nice out and close when necessary (of course we might just leave it open to the elements just for an extra challenge!).
Feel free to check out some of our most popular Athletic and Sports aspects of the University:
ZU Manglers If you are into Football, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Golf, Hockey, or Track and Field, the Zombie University Manglers are your team. Not content to play in just one sport, they do it all. Come by Manes Field any time to check out your team in action!
Moonlight Bowling Gotta get your practice in to get a-head of the game? Join us each Friday night at Midnight for Moonlight Bowling next to the University Center.
Fun Zombie Run What a better way for our students, both living and dead alike, to stay in shape than to have a Fun Zombie Run. Every 2nd Monday of the month we sponsor a Run for Fun. Our zombie students will line up behind our living students and at the sound of the gun, everyone takes off onto the jogging trail for a 5 mile run.
Halloween Brain Bash At Zombie University the entire month of October is considered Halloween. All classes shut down for the month and the entire campus is transformed into a Horrific Hunting ground of fun and games. W-ZMR turns up the music campus wide and on the east side of Voodoo Village a massive 31 day bonfire is lit and fuled for the entire month. This is truly a large scale event not to be missed. We have everything from True Blood flavored Cotton Candy to Bobbing for Brains. Even the jogging trail is transformed into a Spooky Haunted Walk. Moonlight Bowling is transformed into Pumpkin Bowling. During the entire 31 day party Faculty and Staff will also hide small plastic pumpkins (think Easter Eggs) for students to find, when tallied up at 11:00 PM on October 31st the student with the most wins a special trip for 4 to Monster Island.
Spring Carnival of Mayhem As if our Halloween Brain Bash was not enough of a party for you, we also hold a Spring Carnival for our students at the end of the semester, just before summer break. We bring out the grills, round up some rotten candy, and plug in the mechanical brain. Yep, the Mechanical Brain, just like a mechanical bull, but it’s a brain!
