Red Is Dead – Thursday, November 15th @ 8PM, Titsworth Lecture Hall
Have you ever wanted to see a red-headed, left-handed, overweight transsexual comedian? I mean, who hasn’t? Well now is your chance. Red Durkin is making a special appearance on our campus to do an hour of her stand up routine as part of the Trans*Action GenderFuck Week.
Scavenger Hunt – Thursday, November 15th @ 8PM, North Room of the Pub
The only qualms I have with this is that it’s at the same time as Red’s stand up. Otherwise, I am all in. The scavenger hunt will go all over campus, and there’s rumored to be an amazing prize at the end. Drag you friends out their rooms and have them join you. You could even make it interesting by making your own friendly competition. Guys, just go.
Employer Site Visit to Sesame Workshop – Friday, November 16th @ 12:15PM
The event is only open to first-years, sophomores, and juniors so if you fit into that category and you’re interested in children’s television, this could be the perfect Friday afternoon excursion for you. An SLC Alum, Rachel Smith, is giving a behind-the-scenes set tour and talk based on her journey from SLC to the one and only Sesame Street! Students are encouraged to bring their resumes. Who knows, this may be the door to your future. RSVP is required so email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you want a spot. Van rides will be provided.
Annual Thankstaking Potluck – Friday, November 16th @ 6PM, Bates Common Ground
Okay, the Bates Thanksgiving dinner is actually the night before, so here’s your second chance at a Thanksgiving feast! This one, however, promotes an open discussion on the history of our Thanksgiving tradition. Fair warning, it’s not a discussion of the peaceful ways we overtook the First Nation Peoples and our generous acts towards them… it’s a little more, uhm, honest.
Open Dance Concert – Friday, November 16th @ 7:30PM, PAC Bessie Schonberg Dance Studio
The open dance concert is open to anyone both as performers and audience members. This is a really cool chance for students to create and perform. Not everyone performing is a dance third, as anyone on campus who has a creative idea is welcome to showcase their pieces. It’s going for a couple of nights, but what a great way to get the weekend going.
