Casino Night is Theme of March 26 Midnight Mojo Event
Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) students are invited to the fourth Midnight Mojo event of the 2009-2010 school year. This month’s theme: Casino Night.
Happening Friday, March 26 at the Scott Dining Hall near the Scott Hall student residence halls, the event runs from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. The Midnight Mojo event is free and open to all UNO students. Students must present their MavCards to attend. Free food will be available.
Students can play various games to earn raffle tickets, using those tickets to win prizes. They can also get “married” in the Mojo Wedding Chapel; see an Elvis Presley impersonator; watch magic tricks by a magician; and play traditional casino games, including poker, craps, roulette, blackjack and more.
Shuttle busses will take students to and from Maverick Village and University Village on the 26th to the Scott Dining Hall, located near the University of Nebraska Peter Kiewit Institute.
The Midnight Mojo event, now in its second semester, hosts free, late-night student activities that are sponsored by UNO. Funding for Midnight Mojo events are made possible by U kNOw CHOICES in connection with LiveWise.
