Narrowing it down: top five events on campus this week – 2/6/12

It was always weird to me that we turned to groundhogs to predict anything about winter, and this year has reaffirmed that position. According to Punxsutawney Phil we have another six weeks of winter coming our way. If the past two months have qualified as winter, I’m pretty okay with that. More winter or less winter, here are a couple non-weather-related events to keep you busy.

SLC Moving Picture Show Competition — Wednesday, February 8 @ 5:45pm, Heimbold 202

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.
