With fall break in our rear view mirrors, we’ve only got a couple months left until semester’s end! Of course, you may find yourself bored and looking for something different from time to time, and that is where FAB always has you covered. The semester has already been a full one for us thus far, right before the break we had our annual Oktoberfest, with grilled sausage and live music! Prior to that we had our regular trip to Linvilla Orchards for apple picking, we put on Screw Date and Screw: Cookie Decorating, brought a comedian on campus, took a trip to Cirque Du Soleil, went to see a Phillies game and had Quizzo! With all of these events gone and done with, let’s take a look at what’s coming up in the semester.
Humans vs. Zombies, October 22nd to October 31st: Nerd House and FAB collaborate with Double Star from Bryn Mawr to bring you the first Bi-Co Humans vs. Zombies! This apocalyptic event was a hit last year, where zombies scourge the campus attempting to infect humans, who have nerf guns and socks to fight them off. Bandanas are picked up on October 21st, so if you have yet to sign up, do so now – checking your email inbox!
Barnes Museum Trip, November 8th: Tickets will be available on Haverticket prior to the event. Come travel into Philadelphia to the Barnes Museum, one of the largest and most expansive collections of art and culture in America, with over 800 paintings and 2,500 objects. This is an amazing opportunity to get out of the Haverbubble for a bit and enjoy the works of impressionist and modernist masters.
Cooking Class Trip, Likely Weekend of November 15th: While the date is not totally set, you should expect the event to pop up on Haverticket sometime soon! Last year we traveled off campus to the Reading Terminal Market for some extensive cooking classes (and dinner). This year expand your culinary expertise while also expanding your stomach with some cooking lessons and delicious food! A great chance to get off campus and enjoy a night outside of Haverford.
Enjoy your personally created appetizer, entree and desert while also refining your culinary expertise!
DC Iron Chef, November 14th & December 5th, DC Sunken Lounge: Two DC Iron Chef Events?? Well, actually three. Following up on the successes of last year, FAB brings back DC: Iron Chef in an expanded format. Based on the hit TV series, four teams will compete for first place and the prizes that come with it. Every team has a kitchenette set up in the DC Sunken Lounge and contains four members, based on a secret ingredient selected by FAB, they must prepare an appetizer, entree and desert dish for the panel of judges. Each round is judged individually, and the teams even make sample cups for onlookers. This year, we are having TWO preliminary rounds, and after winter break, the top teams from each round will compete for the grand prize! Look for an hc-all email soon to sign up for teams!
The Nutcracker, December 6th: Come see The Nutcracker at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia for some seasonal entertainment. You must see this show at least once, and hopefully more in your lifetime, and all-time classic, FAB is once again booking a bus and tickets to bring you there! Look on Haverticket closer to the event for information about that.
The Nutcracker has been successful and renowned since its first performance in 1892.
Finals Week Events, Finals Week (December 14th – 19th): Of course, how could any semester end without three classic FAB Finals Week events. We kick off the week with Midnight Breakfast on Sunday, December 14th in the DC from 11PM-1AM. Come enjoy a feast of french toast sticks, tater tots, eggs, bacon and orange juice served to you by President Weiss, the Deans and FAB! Next up, we have Ben and Jerry’s Bingo on Monday, December 15th from 7-10PM in the DC. Come enjoy a plethora of flavors and pints of Ben and Jerry’s while playing bingo for prizes! Finally, the Midnight Cheesesteak Run into Philadelphia to Pat’s and Geno’s, takes place at Midnight on December 17th, a Wednesday. First come, first serve on the bus, we meet outside the Campus Center. More information on all of these events when the time comes!
Of course, always check our table tents in the DC, posters around campus, and emails for updates on all of these events and if we happen to plan any new ones (which does happen often)! If you’d like to be on our email list, just give firstname.lastname@example.org an email. Hope to see you at these events!
