ASCE is proud to present the eighth annual Hullabaloo festival.
Each November, Hullabaloo Festival gathers the UC San Diego undergraduate community to celebrate the founding of the University. Set in the heart of campus, this annual tradition features delicious free food, thrilling carnival rides, and live musical performances by national touring artists. UCSD’s bright and passionate spirit truly lights up the night as students live out the motto: Eat. Play. Dance.
Our Mission: To bring the community of UC San Diego undergraduates together by transforming an evening on campus into a thrilling music festival and carnival. Under the glow of large amusement rides, students are treated to the music of the brightest up-and-coming artists.
Hullabaloo is FREE for all UCSD Undergraduates with a valid student ID.
Wristbands are REQUIRED for entry into the event! Students can pick up their wristbands at the Hullabaloo Registration Tent on Library Walk outside of the Bookstore. Students must bring their valid undergraduate student ID to scan in and receive a wristband for the event. Registration will start at 12:00PM and run through the event until 11:00PM on November 16.
Doors to the festival will open at 8:00PM. Students can make their way down Lyman Lane to Town Square (in front of the Triton Statue) to enter the festival after receiving their wristband.
Wristbands are limited and are first come, first serve! Come early to ensure that you receive a wristband for entry into Hullabaloo 2018.

Health & Safety
CHOOSE A TOPIC TO LEARN MORE.
Do NOT mix drugs and alcohol. There is no way to anticipate how your body will react to the mixture and the reaction could be very serious, and even fatal.
Remember: You never know what you are actually taking. Though distributors may assure you that you are getting a certain drug, there is a likelihood that this drug has been cut with something else, or is a different drug entirely. This is especially the case with pills. The wisest decision would be to not take this gamble.
If you do choose to engage in drug use:
Make sure to remain hydrated. But, be careful to not consume too much water at once-- this can lead to a life-threatening electrolyte imbalance in the body that can become fatal. A good rule of thumb is to drink about two cups of water (500ml) every hour.
If you do not feel well, seek help immediately! The symptoms of overdose for drugs can be the same, more exaggerated or totally different than those of alcohol. As with alcohol, you SHOULD NOT SLEEP IT OFF. Tell someone immediately if you do not feel well and get help as fast as you can.
Remember: you WILL NOT be punished for your drug/alcohol use retroactively after seeking help from an official. Our utmost priority is your safety.
For friends of friends who are engaging in drug use:
Be a friend and monitor them at all times possible.
Make sure that they are drinking enough water and are doing alright.
Actions that are out of the ordinary/character of an individual or are extreme could indicate that other drugs or extremely high levels of alcohol are on board. Speak up if you notice such abnormal behavior.
By speaking up you could save your friend from serious harm, and could very well save their life.
Alternate non-alcoholic drinks (drink a glass of water between alcoholic drinks).
Determine in advance the number of drinks, and don’t exceed that!
Choose not to drink alcohol or use drugs.
Use a designated driver (DD’s qualify for great RADD Card discounts).
Eat before or during an event. Check out the great vendors at the event!
Tell your friends to let you know when you’ve had too much to drink.
Keep track of the number of drinks (especially the amount of liquor).
One drink = 12 oz beer, 5 oz wine, or 1.5 oz liquor.
Pace your drinks to one or less per hour.
Avoid drinking games.
Do not mix drugs and alcohol -- be aware of dangerous drug combinations that could result in illness or even death.
Watch over your friends and peers. If you see someone in health-threatening conditions, do not be afraid to reach out to a security guard, police officer, event staff or event volunteer to ask for help. Your health and safety is our first priority at Hullabaloo.
Consent is a mutual, affirmative, voluntary, and revocable agreement by each participant to engage in sexual activity. An informed verbal “yes” must accompany positive and engaging body language..
The initiator of sexual activity is responsible for receiving consent from their partner. Obtaining consent is a continuous process, meaning consent to kissing doesn’t mean consent to everything else. Consent is voluntary and can be withdrawn at any time. Consent must be given without coercion, force, threats or intimidation by the initiator.
Consent cannot be given when someone is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. However, perpetrators may attempt to use alcohol and/or drugs to facilitate a sexual assault. Statistically, the majority of reported sexual assaults occur while one or both parties are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Alcohol or drugs is never an excuse for choosing to violate another person.
There are a number of drugs that may be added to beverages with the intent of altering the consciousness or incapacitating a person without their knowledge. Substances are particularly dangerous when combined with alcohol, and often produce amnesia, leaving a victim unclear about what occurred. These drugs can facilitate criminal activity, most often acts of sexual misconduct or sexual assault.
Sexual assault is any unwanted, non-consensual behavior from kissing and fondling to rape. Ignorance of the law or of University policy concerning sexual assault, sexual misconduct and sexual harassment is never an excuse for non-consensual sexual behavior.
Preventing Sexual Assault
Keeping UC San Diego safe is a community responsibility. Check out the tips below on how you can help prevent sexual assault:
Identify common behaviors that often precede an assault. Recognizable red flags include seeing someone who is attempting to separate an intoxicated individual from their friends, or continuing to pour drinks for an individual who is clearly beyond their limit.
Take action as a responsive bystander and remember to use IDEAS if you see those behaviors happening. You can help someone who is intoxicated by reconnecting them with their friends, or calling a CSO to escort that person home. You can also notify any of the festival volunteers or law enforcement officials on site if you are concerned for someone’s safety and well-being.
Supporting Survivors of Sexual Assault
If something happens to a friend, know you can be a responsive bystander by showing your support:
Listen and believe them. Let them know that you care.
Remember sexual assault is never the fault of the survivor.
Be aware of your response and respect their decisions.
Know the resources and seek support for yourself.
CARE at the Sexual Assault Resource Center is a confidential and free resource for all students, staff, and faculty affected by sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking. If you or a friend need to speak with a confidential CARE advocate, call 858-534-5793.
Remember students, under UC San Diego’s Responsible Action Protocol (RAP), students receiving medical assistance in an alcohol or controlled substance medical-related emergency and students initiating medical assistance WILL NOT be subject to the formal student conduct process if all of the following apply:
The student requests OR another person contacts a House Advisor/Resident Advisor or other University Official (e.g. Police Officer, Residential Security Officer, etc.) for medical assistance on behalf of a student experiencing an alcohol or controlled substance medical-related emergency;
No other major Student Conduct Code violations (including, but not limited to, disorderly conduct, distribution of controlled substances, hazing, physical assault, vandalism, etc.) were committed by the student during the same incident; AND
The student has not received protection under this Protocol more than once in a two calendar year period.
Our utmost priority is that you, or a friend, seek help if needed!
