Music Monday at Red & Black feat. Alma’s Engine

From the melodic Alma Sanchez-Eppler ’14:

In the words of Robbie DeRosa, “Music Mondays are the most fun one can have on campus other than friday nights and The Tour de Franzia. {Who can argue with that?!] Alma Sanchez-Eppler is one of our fave student performers- her alternate guitar tunings and beguiling voice always make us happy. Her songs can be happy, yet world weary ..and she can incite the listener into social awareness at the same time. [Damn.} Come enjoy a grilled sandwich and a fruit smoothie – or if the weather turns, maybe try a specialty coffee drink. [Why wait?!} Either way – show up between 6:00 and 6:45 and be enchanted by Alma .”

Date: TODAY, September 23rd
Time: 6:00PM – 6:45PM
Place: Red & Black Cafe
Cost: Free! (unless you’re feeling that specialty coffee drink)

Venture for America Information Session

Venture-for-America-and-DecisionDeskCourtesy of Rosy Capron ’14:

Imagine a job that teaches you valuable skills, encourages creativity, and contributes to social good. Now imagine that it’s in a low-cost city (no NYC/LA/Boston rents to pay!) with a supportive group of peers and mentors. This may sound like a dream, but Venture for America makes it a reality, and they’re coming to campus for an info session this Monday!

VFA is a nonprofit organization that matches high-achieving college grads with start-up companies around the country. After a summer intensive training program and two years of exciting, enlightening work, VFA fellows come away with the knowledge and experience to succeed as entrepreneurs and to potentially start their own businesses, thereby contributing to job creation and economic growth.

This is an opportunity for students from all majors (not just Computer Science and other subjects your mom begged you to study), and no prior experience with business is required.

Date: Monday, September 23
Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys Ave, Olson Commons (First Floor)
