The end of fall quarter is creeping upon us, and that means it’s time for DeFrag’s bi-annual Geek Til’ Dawn event! The one event we’ve all been waiting for! This time around the theme is Generations, in celebration and honor of DeFrag’s past, present, and future.
Check in for this event will begin at 6PM in the CDM lobby. Be sure to get there and check in by 11PM, as that’s when the building closes. Also, be sure to stop by 924 at 8:30PM for announcements.
This year’s big raffle prize is a SNES Classic! The tournaments this year will consist of games such as Pokémon and Overwatch! We are also having a movie room that will screen various different animes. As per usual, we will have board games all night in 924, as well as video games in the game lab, pizza during the night, and Dunkin Donuts in the morning!
Be sure to stop by 924 by or before midnight as that is when we will do the raffle drawing!
We will also be selling Geek Til’ Dawn posters for this event in 924 throughout most of the night. So feel free to stop by and buy one!
The (tentative) schedule of events is as follows (more events and details to be added soon):
Pokémon Tournament: 6:00PM-12:00AM
Jackbox: 6:00PM-ALL NIGHT
Ongoing Raffle: 8:00PM-11:59PM
Overwatch Tournament: 9:00PM-12:00AM

There will also be a PowerPoint with this schedule in 924 with room information too.
Please keep in mind this is an overnight event, so we have a few additional rules that must be followed as a result.
1. Registration is required. All students must either register at the event or preferably beforehand on OrgSync.
2. Non-DePaul guests are allowed, but only one per student. Guests must also be registered at the main lobby table and must remain with the person who registered them at all times.
3. Everyone must wear the wristbands provided at registration. On the day of the event at the registration desk, each student and guest will be given a color wristband that must remain on them at all times during the event.
4. All students and guests must remain on the 9th, 7th, 5th and 2nd floors. All other floors are strictly off-limits after the building closes at 11.
If anyone is caught in violation of these rules they will be removed from the building. As long as everyone follows these simple rules though, we shouldn’t have any problems!
Hope to see you all there on November 10th!
