The Office of Student Engagement offers several programs beyond typical student clubs and organizations and is host to many signature events throughout the year.
Harry Potter Fest
The wizarding world comes to Heidelberg an evening of magic and a delicious feast. Students enjoy specialty drinks, a sorting hat ceremony, and fun photo opportunities.
Heidelberg faculty and staff who would like to join the head table can fill out the interest form here. A member of the Harry Potter Fest Committee will reach out to all interested people. Please understand that we must balance the number of interested new faculty and staff with those already established at the head table and plan to include 2 – 3 new characters each year. Questions about the Harry Potter Fest Head Table can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Late Night Breakfast
Late Night Breakfast is one of Heidelberg’s most delicious events! Starting at 11:00pm the night before finals each semester, students are invited to enjoy a meal that is cooked, served, and cleaned-up by Heidelberg staff, administration, faculty, and coaches.
Fresh Check Day
Fresh Check Day is a mental health fair that goes beyond the pamphlets. It’s a celebratory event that includes peer-run, interactive, expo booths, free food, music, and exciting prizes and giveaways. It’s a loud reminder that Heidelberg cares about you and your well-being!
Homecoming activities kick-off a full week before the big game! There’s an activity for everyone- the Homecoming Court Showcase, a related excursion, a party, and the pep rally! It’s also a time where alumni come back to campus for Greek Sing.
Siggy’s Summer Send-Off
Siggy’s Summer Send-Off is a spring festival that takes place the week before finals. Previous events have included inflatable fun, bumper cars, bubble soccer, and escape rooms. The day ends with live music and food!
Welcome Week isn’t just for first-years- the first week of fall semester is filled with activities, such as comedians, musicians, dances, and bonfires! The full schedule is available at Verification, so be on the lookout.
