UPDATE: Jamestown school referendum defeated

Welcome new UJ students


Welcome to Jamestown, new University of Jamestown freshmen students. The Community Block Party is a way for the community to welcome you, so have fun and enjoy the party.

The annual event is in its ninth year, growing in community participation to 112 booths.

New freshmen students at the University of Jamestown who aren’t familiar with Jamestown will get a look today at what the city has to offer. Businesses, organizations and groups will be among booths downtown waiting to greet you as you begin your educational journey here. Learn what businesses, services and groups are here while you have a lot of fun doing so.

The annual Community Block Party is one of the largest gatherings downtown each year, designed to welcome students but also drawing many residents as well. Giveaways of food and other items are standard to the crowd expected to descend on the downtown.

Have fun, UJ students, and enjoy the party!
