A note on gun violenceSince Fall 2010, the Associated Students of UC Irvine (ASUCI) has had an annual Welcome Week tradition where Anteaters all throughout the campus unite to break a World Record. This tradition has created a greater sense of unity and spirit on the UC Irvine campus and has been able to ignite a sense of pride among members of the Anteater family. This year, going along with our mission to promote school sprit, we have initiated a new attempt, to host the World’s Largest Water Blaster Battle. As with all our events, ASUCI seeks to host events that are both fun and safe for and have consulted numerous campus partners, such as UCIPD, Campus Recreation, and Risk Management to try and ensure the safety of all participants. Although gun violence on school campuses is a sad reality, this World Record attempt does not try to make light of the seriousness of the issue. However, we think that the terrible actions of a few should not prohibit us from hosting an event that promotes a greater sense of belonging and school spirit.
+ ART LAB

Student Center Terrace 6:30pm-9:30pm. The art lab hosts quarterly events on the student center terrace which display student artwork while also showcasing student musical talent in an art-walk style.
