Pickup locations on campus include Lot 63, near Bond Hall, and the circle by Merrill and Travis halls. Shuttles will pick up students every 15 to 20 minutes, and a handicapped accessible bus will be available. 

The event includes a live DJ, giveaways and raffles, a photo booth and more. Coupons and discounts are also signature features of Meijer Mania.

Smith also is acting as a co-chair for the Bulldog Beginnings Planning Committee, with Fernando Labra, coordinator of intramural and club sports.
