General Event Information

The fall picnic is organized by the college‚Äôs Office of Student Development and Success, and has been a tradition for the past several years. It is the perfect environment for our own 3700 + students, 120+ faculty, and awesome alumni, as well as engineering, technical and business professionals from industry to establish relationships, network, and discuss career options in a casual setting.

Each year we have 1700+ people attending the picnic! You are encouraged to bring a good supply of marketing and product materials and bring as many folks as you wish to interact with our students, alumni and faculty. Company participants can bring anything short of explosives and weapons, such as product samples, pictures, machines, prototypes, equipment, along with marketing brochures, business cards, candy, games and giveaways. These items offer a great opportunity to engage students and have them learn about your company and do not forget to invite your employees who are UNC Charlotte alumni!
