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

Encuentro – For Community, For Humanity

Rachel Fifer ’12 says you should come to an Encuentro:

An Encuentro (or “Encounter”) is a space for people to come together openly and peacefully.

An Encuentro is not a meeting a one-way panel or a conference. It is a call for dialogue and collaboration developed by the Mexican Zapatista revolutionaries with the intent of countering the current tendency to prioritize big business over individual welfare. We will speak, listen, and share our common struggles. Everyone’s voice will be taken into account equally.

Encuentro is a gathering of individuals who are struggling for housing, education, health, freedom, justice, love, a voice, a space to exist, peace, respect, themselves, for our community, for our dignity, and for humanity.
