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

Back Again: Malcolm Tent Brings Vinyl to Usdan

The biannual WESU record fair is still over a month away (April 15, if you’re keeping score), but why wait? Malcolm Tent has been seen round these parts many times before (and even interviewed once or twice), and he’ll be setting up shop again today in downstairs Usdan:

I, Malcolm Tent, am returning to your benighted campus. I will be loaded with the best new + used underground/ overground records, DVDs, and CDs.

The date is Monday, March 5. I’ll be at Usdan from approximately noon – 5 pm.

Not only will I be selling stuff, but I’ll be buying and trading so bring all of your unwanted records, tapes, cd’s, or whatever!

Date: Today, March 5
Time: 12 – 5 pm
Place: Usdan

C.O.L. Wants Y.O.U: An “Open House”

Samantha Januszeski ’13 writes in with one of the better event posters I have seen since I scrolled endlessly through Brendan O’Connell ’08‘s Wesleyan Poster Archive. (Frosh: this is one of only a few majors you need to apply to this year. Apps are due on March 26, but if you get in, you can always reconsider.) Take note that the College of Letters library is now in 41 Wyllys, not Butt C—alas, that faulty has had enough asbestos for one tenured lifetime:
