  3. From 9-11AM there will be two hours of non-stop Union Yoga! Stay for 30 minutes or the whole time, but either way, you’ll feel refreshed to take on the rest of the day’s fun events!
  4. Too Early For This! – LIVE will start at 10AM. Too Early For This! is a morning variety show filled with game shows, a taste test, and a whole smattering of funny content you won’t wanna miss. Watch live in the Syndicate or stream it from home.
  5. Also from 10-1 in the Chat, there will be face painting. If you’re gonna be hanging out in the Union all day, you might as well have your face painted for great selfie potential.
