Shocktoberfest

Shocktoberfest has been Wichita State’s annual celebration of Shocker spirit and pride since 1991. This week-long series features events, programs and competitions coordinated by Student Involvement with the support of multiple student organizations and campus departments.

One of the main features of Shocktoberfest is the competition for the coveted Shocktoberfest Trophy. Standing over 5 feet tall, this trophy is awarded to the group of students with the most points acquired through the week of Shocktoberfest including Songfest.

Shocktoberfest features events and activities for Shockers of all ages including a fall festival, various competitions, breakfast with WSU Academic Deans and so much more.
