What if your participation in college events and support for students could win a 2 night’s stay at Unity College: Sky Lodge for you and three guests?

Unity College has amazing community building traditions. Whether it’s the Unity College Annual 5K, the Fall Maker’s Market at McKay Farm & Research Station, athletic events, the Environmental Career Fair, or Leonard Craig Art Openings, we encourage faculty and staff to participate in events, represent our institution with guests, and mostly importantly, get to know our students who are on their way to becoming the world’s sustainability leaders.

The list of qualifying events will be maintained by the President’s Office on a rolling basis. Requests to make events eligible for Sky Lottery must be submitted two weeks prior to the event date for consideration.
