Huffington Post Information Session – Wednesday, October 10 @ 5PM, Titsworth living room
I hate to be cliché and say this is a meeting not to miss, but I mean, come on, it’s the Huffington Post. A representative is coming to campus to talk to Sarah Lawrence students about possible internship opportunites. I know that most of you are already hooked, but just in case you aren’t, you get a free dinner just by showing up! It’s really a win-win situation.
You Mean There’s Race in My Movie? – Wednesday, October 10 @ 5PM, Science Center 103
It’s a bit of a bummer that this even it going on at the same time as the Huffington Post info session, but if you’re totally not interested in working for a news company, then come to this discussion sponsored by DAPS. Frederick Gooding, from The Minority Reporter, will be leading a discussion in which race in portrayed in main stream movies. He’ll be looking at examples both subtle, and those not so subtle, in pop culture movies that we all know and love. He claims there are six common archetypes that “non-white” characters fall into. The tag line of the event is, “ You’ll Never See Movies the Same Way Again!” Intriguing, I know.
Cloud 9 – Thursday, October 11 @ 7PM, Suzanne Werner Wright Theatre
It’s the first opening show of the season, how exciting! It’s a comedy written by Caryl Churchill who parallels 19th century sexual imperialism with sexual liberation in the 1970s. You can begin signing up for seats in the PAC lobby on the 9th, and if you can’t make it to Thursday’s performance, you have other opportunities on Friday and Saturday.
24 Hour Shakespeare Marathon – Saturday, October 12 @ 4PM, Titsworth Lecture Hall
The name pretty much sums it up, but basically what’s going to happen is a very brave group of students will be performing Shakespeare’s works continuously for 24 hours. If this sparks your interest, there are many ways to get involved. You can either show up and let the words of Shakespeare wash over you, or you can try your hand at performing it yourself( you don’t even need to come prepared with anything). However, be sure to grab a sponsor form as the event is aiming to raise money for Midnight Cabaret’s performance of Sweeney Todd.
Citilinks Presents Apple and Pumpkin Picking at Stuart’s Farm – Sunday, October 13 @ 1PM, Andrews Parking Lot
A van is leaving from Andrew’s parking lot at 1PM to take students on a delightful trip to pick their own apples and pumpkins. You can begin signing up in Student Affairs starting the eighth. The only requirement is a five dollar copay. Five dollars for an afternoon full of frolicking in an apple orchard creating timeless memories? Yes please.
