Hey ya’ll!

OMG April Fools is right around the corner (TUESDAY) and I can’t wait to prank everybody that I know!

This weekend’s weather is looking pretty decent (in the mid 50s). The only problem is that it’s going to be rainy and humid… so make sure to carry around your umbrella and anti-humidity hairspray! Although there aren’t that many events this week, the ones that are going on are poppin’. Here are this weekend’s events <3

The Seven Person Pyramid High Wire Act

7:00pm-9:00pm, Squash Court #2

** At first I thought it was a trapeze show in which people would walk on a wire and jump through flaming hoops. Then I googled it and found out that it’s a play about bats and a dance concert….. so if you’re into bats and underground theater, you should stop by! Also the poster is pretty cool, so you should go just for that. #artsy #hipster #alumni

 

Ableism Keynote Panel: Mia Mingus and Carl Sigmund *Part of (Dis)Ability Awareness Week

7:30pm-9:30pm, Stokes Aud

** Educate yourself! #edumacate #oooooo

Haverford’s Got Talent

7:00pm – 9:00pm, Marshall Aud

**From singing to dancing to comedy this talent show is gonna be awesome. It’s like a 4th grade talent show except that these kids got talent.  Also the MCs (Brand-on Kelly and Stephen Pro-fetta) will probably steal the show with their raunchy comedy. Also the only thing Cruz has been talking about for the past month is this show so… please go… it’s his baby. #SimonCowell #wheredreamsdontcometrue #Cruz’sbaby #funny #startedfromthebottom #JinandJuice

 

Fro Life – Fro Choice

7:00pm – 9:00pm, Founders Hall

** If you like hair and are looking for some tips on how to love your hair then you should stop by. From fashion show to merchandise station (maybe they’ll be selling anti-humidity hairspray) to a panel discussion… it’s all about HAIR (not the Lady Gaga song doe). #hair #Haaallaaaah #itsgoingdown #letitgo #youdoyou #youdohair #hairdoyou

 

Enjoy the weekend but don’t get too Creigh!

Have hair?  Yes?  Then we have an event for you!

Fro-Life/Fro-Choice is an event that will be examining cultural pressures and perspectives on hair/beauty standards.  There will be panels, discussions, guest speakers and poets, singers, and a hair care station!  Be sure to check it all out!

afro6

Boys and girls alike are welcome, as are those with all sorts of hair types.  Straight, curly, long, short, blonde, or black hair- all are invited and are sure to learn something new!  The event is from 7:00-9:30pm in Founders.

  • hello Everyone, I'm an intern for the Student Activities Office! I'm an English major and Japanese minor. I was born and raised in New York and love turning my city into my playground. During my free time I like to hang out with my friends in the city. I often drag them to the local karaoke lounges in Koreatown. (because no matter what anybody says, butchering the latest pop songs in front of your family and friends is a liberating experience! :P) Other than singing I love dancing, fighting games, and meeting new people. So feel free to use me as a resource! Peace!
