What is Employee Field Day?
Employee Field Day is an event specially designed for UNCG Employees! Come join us for this day of play designed to relieve stress, build morale, encourage camaraderie and promote FUN!  Come as an individual player, as part of a team, or just as a cheerleader! Food, prizes, and fun for everyone. Wear your blue and gold! You will even have the opportunity to snag a picture with our beloved, Spiro! 

UNCG Staff Senate will be collecting  items for the Spartan Open Pantry. Donations can be dropped off at the check-in table on the day of the event! To learn more about the Spartan Open Pantry, click here!
