Narrowing it down: the top five events on campus this week – 3/29/11

Scrolling through the daily email every day can sometimes feel like a slog, so SLCSpeaks has done the work for you. We aim to cover an array of event types with our top five of the week. If you go to these, you are guaranteed a sense of fulfillment by the many facets of campus life. Enjoy!

Week of March 27-April 2

So we’re back from Spring Break (physically, at least). The weather is less than springy, although there are a few trees looking about as ready for spring as I am. Here are a few things happening on campus this week that might just take your mind off the cold long enough for it to warm up.

Opening: Drawing a Blank – 3/29 @ 5pm, Heimbold
The next student art exhibit is coming to Heimbold! The Opening Reception will run from 5pm-7pm tomorrow night, but the show stays up until April 3rd. If you can’t make it tomorrow, be sure to stop by and see what SLC students are creating by Sunday.

Talk: A Writer and Her Agent – 3/30 @ 2pm, Slonim Living Room
This event is a must-do for anyone hoping to enter a literary field. SLC faculty Joan Silber and her agent will discuss the ins and outs of the writer-agent relationship and perhaps divulge some secrets of of the trade. The Office of Career Counseling is co-sponsoring this event; there will be refreshments.

Blues and Booze at the Bayou – Round II [OFF CAMPUS] – 3/31 @ 9pm
The Sarah Lawrence blues ensembles are playing at the Bayou Bar in Fleetwood this Thursday night, taking Blues and Booze to a whole new level, for the second time! Shuttles will be running to and fro (starting at 8pm), so really, there is no excuse not to go. For those arranging your own transportation, the address is 580 Gramatan Avenue, Mount Vernon, NY 10552.

Dance: SLC Spring Barn Dance! – 4/2 @ 1pm, Reisinger
Uhm. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this one, but definitely worth an afternoon trip to Reisinger. The SLC Bluegrass Band will provide the music as SLC takes the dance party back in time. Your cowboy boots can finally do more than just look cool.

Nina Sparling (Editor, “What’s Up”) is a bi-coastal aspiring bread baker frustrated with the current food system. Originally from Berkeley, she moved to New York, complaining most of the way, until she found the Met and figured out the subway (but still has serious envy for Bay Area vegetables). Currently a sophomore at Sarah Lawrence, Nina studies languages, political ecology, and geography and tries to figure out how they all relate.
