Traditions & History

Unit One has a long legacy of unique programming and special traditions. 

Some of our traditions include:

  • Allen Hall-iday - an Allen Hall holiday that celebrates winter and the founding myth of Allen Hall
  • Lotusfest - a trip to Bloomington, IN every fall to attend the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival
  • Allenpalooza - a year-end celebration of Allen Hall student life and student creativity
  • Zombie Mob - a flash mob of zombies roaming the campus for brains and dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller
  • Coffeehouse - a monthly open mic night that has been going strong for decades
  • Minute of Noise - 60 seconds of mayhem right before 24 hour quiet hours begin during finals week
