Snapshot: February 20, 2017

It’s Feb Break, y’all. Some of you are off chilling on some sunny beach with some orange juice. Some of you are off on a high summit, skiing and snowboarding and X-Treme Sledding. And some of you hit the real jackpot. You’re staying here. Well, my friends, let’s find some stuff to do this week.


No one is here right now. You know what that means? Spam the Box Office and get them tickets. The University Singers are performing their 2017 Home Tour in Wilson on February 28th. And while tickets are free, they are r-e-q-u-i-r-e-d. So stop on by the Box Office today (or any day this week) from 9:00-11:00am or 1:00-3:00pm and get YOURS now.


Do you know where you’re living next year? NO? Well good news, Theme House Applications are now being accepted! Deadline is March 1, so do it now and get it in before everyone else does!


Get on your blue sweatshirt, wear your white cap, put on your George Washington Themed Powdered Wig and get on out to support our Men’s Tennis Team. They are playing against the Averett Cougars (rawr) today at 3:30.  The match will be played in the Upper Courts – or in the Tennis Center if the weather is bad – so come rain or shine! #GoGenerals!


Need to feel fancy this week? How about some art? A new exhibit – “Remembering the Lost: Community Response to the Theft of Nepal’s Sacred Sculptures” – is up in Staniar Gallery. It includes sculptures, painting, photographs, interviews, information – and more from the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal! So get your opera glasses (you use those for museums right?) and go see some art!


Okay guys, it’s the Friday of break. The last day that you can technically still do things without worrying about all the work you didn’t do this week. So today I firmly believe that you should stay in your dorm room, eat nothing but hot cocoa and ramen (all you need is water and a heat source), and binge watch Netfix shows. I mean… you don’t have to do that. But that’s what I’ll be doing…
See y’all in class (please no) on Monday.
