Major Events

SBA Programming is responsible for planning several major events throughout the school year, including the Welcome Back BBQ, Halloween Party, Barristers’ Ball, and Grad Week.

The Welcome Back BBQ takes place during the first week of class to celebrate the start of the new semester.

The Halloween Party takes place the Friday before Halloween at a local venue and replaces bar review for that week. The best costume of the night will win a prize!

Barristers’ Ball takes place in March, shortly after students return from spring break. In the past, this event has been held at such notable DC landmarks as The Mayflower, National Building Museum, and other various institutions throughout the city.

To wrap up the year and celebrate the graduating class, Programming plans Grad Week, a series of events over the two weeks leading up to graduation. This is a last hoorah! for the graduating class and includes various activities such as a winery tour and Potomac River cruise.
