Narrowing It Down: The Top 5 Events on Campus This Week – 12/8/12

Two more weeks.

Chanukkah Lighting – Monday, December 10th @ 5PM, Bates Spiritual Space

Happy Chanukkah everyone! This event is actually going on all week because I mean, Chanukkah goes on for eight days. Anywho, head down to the spiritual space and participate in the lighting of the hanukkiyah. Come any day during the week to be part of the celebration.

How to Find a Spring Internship – Tuesday, December 11th @ 1PM, Titsworth Lecture Hall

You know how you always say, “ Yeah, I’m looking to get an internship right now,” but you never actually do? Yeah, me neither. Well here’s your no excuses chance to actually get one. Career counseling is having an informal session open to anyone. You can get an SLC internship directory, speak with someone about the process, and you even might apply for an internship on the spot. If you’re not sure about the whole internship thing, you can have someone help you with a resume and cover letter.

Write a Thank You to SLC Staff – Thursday, December 13th @ 1PM, Pub

I actually strongly encourage everyone to stop by on either Thursday of Friday to write a thank you note. Our SLC staff does so much for us, more than we all probably realize. More importantly, these notes are thanking all of the staff that worked really hard to keep us safe during the hurricane. Remember when we got food brought to our dorms? Or when they brought us glow sticks when the power went out? A big thank you is definitely deserved in my opinion.

Ginger Bread House Making – Friday, December 14th @ 6PM, Pub

OMG guyz… ginger bread houses. What could be more fun than making a gingerbread house during the stress of conference week? Nothing, that’s what. Besides having the fond memories of making it, you can eat it too! Win, win.

Lampoon Improv Show #3 – Friday, December 14th @ 8PM, Slo Living Room

This is the final Lampoon show of the semester, and it’s rumored to be a good one. I went to their last improv show, and I can honestly say it was thoroughly entertaining. Improv is especially entertaining because it’s all unrehearsed and anything can happen( or go wrong). You could even bring your newly made ginger bread house along to munch on while you watch. Just an idea.
