*Howka Weekend includes an optional overnight stay in one of our own Residence Halls.

All activities take place on the SDSU campus.

Residential Experience Option – Students are offered an option to stay on campus Friday night. This optional component of Howka weekend will give you the opportunity to be paired up with a current SDSU student and experience what it is like to live in the residence halls. Spots are very limited and will be filled on a first come-first serve basis.
