Off the Block Party to Host Games and Fun for Everyone

Off the Block PartyCommuter Life is reinventing how they form commuter events and everyone is invited to experience the first test run on Thursday from 11-1 p.m. on Heath Lawn.

The Off the Block Party’s slogan is “You Bring the Party”. Commuters and on-campus students are invited to bring friends, skateboards, guitars and whatever else they want, to add to the games and snacks that Commuter Life will provide. For games, Commuter Life is bringing a football, soccer, Frisbee, horseshoes, corn hole and croquet.

Along with sports and other games, this “little summer bash” will feature summer tunes, ice cream sandwiches and an all-inclusive environment that differs from past commuter events, commuter program director David Remedios said. “The No. 1 thing we want to do is create an inclusive environment for commuters,” Remedios said. He noted that, in the past, most commuter events have focused so much on getting commuters together that they lacked a key component: the integration of commuters into the Vanguard community as a whole.

The Off the Block Party will encourage integration and set a trajectory for future Commuter Life events. “This is just kind of testing the waters a bit,” Remedios said about the party. Looking ahead to the event, Remedios said he is looking forward to seeing commuters’ response to this new way of doing commuter events.
