Bar Night at Usdan

It’s Bar Night at Usdan.  It’s BAR NIGHT at USDAN.  A headline out of my dreams:

A full range of mocktails and sodas will be served with labeled ingredients.

We will provide a range of different activities such as Wii, trivia competition, water pong, darts, karaoke, pool, foosball, and other
games. Following the bar night theme, we will be serving fries, onion rings and chicken fingers.

While participating in this fun filled event, students can enjoy delicious drinks and great entertainment with friends, without
worrying about having a terrible hangover the next day. This will also be a scent and strobe-light free event.

Date: Friday, November 2
Time: 9:30pm-11:59pm
Place:  The Usdan Center
Cost: Noneskies

Ishmael @ Earth House

Exactly three months after its triumphant rising from the ashes in the hollowed halls of Psi Upsilon Dormitory for Men, and approximately two weeks after announcing its upcoming EP (which was later previewed on the WESU airwaves), famed progalicious funksters Ishmael return to its native habitat: Earth House. Fabulous details from the band itself:

We will be giving a concert of music. Come listen to the music and to the other sounds. There shall be head banging aplenty.

As always, Ishmael is Jordan Lewis ’13, Andy Werle ’12, Nick Otte, and Aaron Silberstein. The show is free as funk, and there are no openers to be had.

Aaron Peisner’s Senior Thesis Concert

 

Aaron Peisner ’12 understands the power of llama. He also wants you to know:

Come hear a concert of unaccompanied choral works by an assortment of composers from the past four centuries! Composers include Brahms, Monteverdi, Poulenc, Ligeti, Elgar and more. We’ll also be performing a new piece I wrote.

Men’s basketball to host NESCAC Quarterfinal

For the first time since 2003–and the first time ever in the Silloway Gym era–Wes men’s basketball will host a NESCAC first-round playoff game. Wes, which set a program record for wins this season (19)–in the process becoming the first NESCAC team ever to go from ninth to third place, and just the second ever to host a playoff game a year after missing the tournament–will take on Bowdoin at 3:00 Saturday. Wes defeated Bowdoin 74-61 in Maine last Friday, but Bowdoin has never lost in Silloway Gym, including a one-point win on the last day of the 2010-11 regular season.

Admission will be free with a Wes student ID. As they said in high school…”BE LOUD. BE PROUD.”

Date: Saturday, Feb. 18
Time: 3:00 PM

Cost: FREE with Wes student ID ($3 for adults, $1 for visiting students)
