UWC Goes to the Beach (5th Annual!!)
Time & Location
About The Event
UWC NYC is hosting its 5th annual beach party at The Rockaways and you're invited to take part in the festivities, just an hour and a half away from the city via Subway or Ferry! We'll start at 10:30 AM and you can enjoy the sunshine until 6:30 PM (or leave whenever you want to!)
There will be a hot tub, food, drinks and the usual one-of-a-kind UWC mixing and mingling! And THE BEACH IS HALF A BLOCK AWAY!
We're asking for a minimum donation of $15 ($10 for starving students everywhere). This annual event is being graciously hosted by Atlantic College Alumna Beata Jostmeier, whom we can't thank enough! She and UWC NY will cover all costs, so your donation will go directly to fund scholarships for the UWC Refugee Initiative.
Bring your friends, we want to meet them, non-UWCers and UWCers alike!
TICKETS include snacks, drinks (water, soda, beer & wine) and lunch. Ticket sales are final and non-refundable.
HOW TO GET THERE
The most scenic way to get to the beach is to take the Rockaway Ferry from Pier 11 at Wall St which will drop you off at Beach 108th st. You can take either the free West Shuttle (to Beach 118th st) or the Q22 (to beach 122 st) on Rockaway Beach Blvd or walk 17 mins to the house.
