Are you starting to the feel the mid-semester crunch? Now is the time that exams, projects and papers tend to take over our lives. So take back your free time with two awesome upcoming events.
Sunday, magician Nate Staniforth will be on campus in connection with the Chicago Bus Tour Weekend. Staniforth has performed on many university campuses, and it is considered a “campus invasion.” With magic, music and some multimedia, this is no traditional magic. He will be performing at Sussman Theatre at 9 p.m.
The weekend of fun will continue on into Monday night as we welcome Aman Ali, to Pomerantz Stage. Ali is an award-winning storyteller hailing from New York City. His conversation will touch on some of his experiences traveling, and his upbringing as a Muslim born and raised in the United States. Ali has also been featured on media outlets such as CNN, HBO and NPR.
First-year students, keep your eyes peeled for a programming survey and more information about how and where to take it. This is your chance for you to have your voice heard in the events that SAB plans.
Last, are you looking for a way to get involved with campus programming? The Homecoming Executive Board has some open positions they are looking to fill. Contact Mark Reiter (Mark.Reiter@drake.edu) or Vivianna Lopez (Vivianna.Lopez@drake.edu) if you or someone you know is interested!
