Over 20 stores and restaurants along Broadway will participate in College Night — including, but not limited to, J Crew, Jack Wills, Urban Outfitters, Alex and Ani, and the Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Yale.

Participating stores will have discounts of up to 20% off, along with special in-store promotions, such as a free jewelry giveaway to the first 200 customers at Laila Rowe and free samples of Ashley’s Ice Cream.

As students shop around Broadway, they can enjoy live music featuring the band Kings of Harmony. Other offerings include free henna tattoos, free caricatures, free kettle corn, and the chance to win prizes in small games such as Plinko.
