  • Mackay Week: Mackay Week honors John Mackay, an early patron of the university, and the mining industry of which he was a part. Events vary each year, but include many opportunities for free food, prizes and good times.
  • Undie Run: Undie Run is held on the night of Dead Day. Students show up in clothes that they wish to donate to charity, and then strip down for a run around campus in their undies. It's a great way for students to unwind before finals, and also be charitable.
Urban Legends

  • Mackay is supposed to haunt the old Getchell Library.
  • The SAE frat house has been rumored to be the site of a number of date rapes.
