F14_Human_Chess3

 

Have you ever wanted to be a Knight? How about a King?? Well, now your dreams can come true in an epic game of Human Chess–where YOU can play as one of the pieces, and spray silly string on your opponents when you capture them! To add to the excitement, Dean Watter will be playing, so the question will be…will your team capture the Dean??

Costume making and team formation starts at 2:30pm. We will have some basic supplies, but you are encouraged to dress up/bring any supplies you want to be an epic chess warrior! The game itself starts at 3:30pm.

You are strongly encouraged to use the following form to register yourself and any friends who want to play! docs.google.com/forms/d/1U-g_cly2KzNpjXMIs9hRVCa6yZlCyslsbx12lfLFJOo/viewform?usp=send_form

You can also join the facebook event to show off how epic you are to your friends! :D www.facebook.com/events/1483796705243327

See you on the battle-squares!

Dear Haverford People,

Hope you had a great weekend and a Happy Halloween.

In addition, I hope that by now you have heard of the new film out that tackles issues of race in institutions of higher learning.  The film is called Dear White People and follows the experiences of 4 young black students in a fictional Ivy League school.  The film traces the very different perspectives of these students as they work through their racial identities.  The film lands on pressing issues of underrepresented youth of color, all leading up to the climactic outrage of an “African American themed” party where students show up to “release their inner Negro”.  How do the characters respond when they are confronted with a sea of white students in blackface, fake chains and guns, and sipping “purple drank”?

Now is your chance to find out!

This Sunday (11/9) FAB has prepared a Blue Bus to the Bryn Mawr Film Institute for a showing!  The bus be behind Stokes at about 3:45 and will leave at 3:50,  This  is NOT a Haverticket event.  There are a limited number of seats but it is first come, first serve.

Please note that there are regular blue buses running at the same time, so be on the lookout for a FAB representative to direct you to the proper bus!

  • 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!

Hello person that just clicked on the link!

Pinwheel day happened and it was magical….and really cold… but still, it made my week. If you haven’t gotten a pinwheel by now, no worries. There are still decapitated pinwheels all over Founders Green, you could make a cool sculpture with them. I wonder if they reuse them for next year. Anyways Haverfest is right around the corner so make sure you have money in your bookstore accounts because they (people of Haverfest) will be selling AWESOME merchandise soon. VERY soon. #imgonnabuyEVERYTHING #negativebalanceinaccount

In other news, good luck to the seniors that are in the process of finishing their theses. The grass is greener on the other side… or so they say.

There aren’t that many events going on this weekend because everyone is too busy with work and stuff. BUT if you want to procrastinate/stealfreefood go check these events out!

IMG_7702

 

I didn’t think so!

 

This Friday, FAB is sponsoring an event- Hunger Over Nutella Games II- and you should all be there.  Let’s be real- we all do this in the privacy of our dorm rooms, so we might as well be a bit more social and do it with our friends.  It will be hosted at 7:30pm on HCA green this Friday, 4/25.  There will be a full Nutella bar with fresh fruit, crackers, and breads to wipe our fave condiment on, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be shown.

 

Be there, or have an empty stomach and not learn how to survive the impending apocalypse and/or dramatic political crisis that results in reverting back to ancient Grecian times and cheering while humans fight to the death in an arena.  Woo!!!

 

This Friday, 4/25. 7:30pm.  HCA green.  Nutella.  The Hunger Games.  JLaw.  JHutch.  Miley Cyrus’ Ex-Fiance.  Be there.

Hey Hey Hey!

Every night I dream that I’m gonna wake up and walk into a field of colorful pinwheels… but this weather is ruining EVERYTHING. Shout-out to everyone that put their winter coats in storage and then had to take them out because of the inconsistent weather.

In other news, the end is so close yet so far away. I don’t know if I’ll make it to the end but on the plus side… 2 more weeks till Haverfest!!! Anyways I’m too tired and stressed to make more cheesy remarks so here are the things that are going on this weekend (although you should be inside doing HOMEWORK….jk #procrastinate #tilltheend)

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

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
