Friday Night Fun

The Throng improv group performs in the Lunt basement.

Last Friday, November 8th, was a busy night for students on campus!

Student performance groups, community housing affinity groups, and religious clubs were all represented in the packed schedule of popular events hosted that evening. The Throng (pictured above), a student improv comedy troupe, staged their first performance of the semester in Lunt Basement. Three a cappella groups, the all-male S-Chords, the co-ed Mainliners, and the Bi-Co all-female Counterpoint, teamed up to provide a mid-semester show in Zubrow Commons.

The Spanish-language community house La Casa Hispánica hosted a craft celebration in honor of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). In keeping with one of the traditions of the a Mexican holiday, which is celebrated Oct. 30-Nov. 2,  attendees decorated sugar skulls with glitter paint, pipe cleaners, and feathers.

Elsewhere on campus, the QuaC, or Quaker Community, hosted a sing-along session in the Skatehouse, the historic building right next to the Duck Pond. Some students brought guitars to play and marshmallows to roast over the roaring fire.

Here are some snapshots of each of these events:

    Also that weekend, Haverford Christian Fellowship and Collections Committee brought a professional actor on campus to perform a play based on the C.S. Lewis book, The Great Divorce. That is worth a mention.
