Narrowing It Down: Top 5 Events on Campus This Week – 9/30/12


The 7th Annual SLC Health FairTuesday, October 2nd @12PM, Outdoor Spaces South Lawn( Rain location Siegel Center/Pub)

I know at first glance going to a health fair sounds unbelievably lame, but this event has quite a bit going for it. It’s a great place to find out info on healthy eating, getting a free flu shot, and even having a bone density screening done (uhh what?). There’s a beer goggle obstacle course( because none of use would know what that was actually like), yoga, and the best part, free massages. What a lovely way to start off the week.

 FEAR Project Presents Got Privilege?Tuesday, October 2nd @6PM, MacCracken Meeting Room

This weekly discussion is a great place for anyone willing to engage in a lively discussion on difficult dialogues. The group is focusing especially on privilege, oppression, and ally-building this semester. It’s a safe space environment, and they’re always welcoming new members. Oh, there’s also free snacks…. just saying.

Committee on Student LifeWednesday, October 3rd @11AM, Bates Meeting Room

Okay, I get that this isn’t the liveliest of things you could be going to this week, but in all fairness, it’s an important meeting to go to. If you have something you want the committee to discuss you just have to email them by 12PM Monday in order for it to be put on the agenda. If there’s some fundraiser or event you’ve been dying to throw, all you need to do is present to the committee in order for it to approved. So who’s got an idea for an awesome rager? Oh, they too provide free lunch.

 SLAC Blue Room Dance Party Friday, October 5th @10PM, Bates Blue Room

The theme is naughty nautical… ‘nuff said.

Shop at Bloomingdale’s for SLC Saturday, October 6th @10AM, Bloomingdale’s in White Plains

While this is basically just a giant excuse to go shopping, it’s actually supporting a great cause and our school. The event is called, ‘Ready Set Pink! A Charity Shopping Event’. SLC is a Breast Cancer Research Foundation- funded institution, so you get the chance to shop till you drop and then give 10% back to our school. Pretty neat, right? All you have to do is present your receipt at the Bridal registry when you’re done. A little retail therapy never hurt anybody.
